If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Jonathan Gair.

Profound questions arise from the study of planets orbiting other stars—questions that span astronomy, geology, atmospheric physics, and perhaps eventually biology. Several centers around the world are working towards the highest contrast images ever made in any field of inquiry, looking to transcend the limits on our ability to study these “exoplanets.” I will discuss research efforts in exoplanet imaging and spectroscopy, while highlighting two of AMNH ’s main projects: an active, ongoing search at Palomar, called Project 1640, and construction of the starlight suppression system for the Gemini Planet Imager.
