Part of the TCSS Symposium

Detection and characterization of planetary systems in the Universe is an historic scientific and human enterprise of this century. The completely unexpected characteristics of the many exoplanets found so far are capturing the interest of the scientific community as well as the general public imagination.

After two decades of exoplanet discoveries the origin and nature of exoplanet remains surrounded by a glaze of mystery. Our Solar System seems one of the many solution Nature experiments when making planets. This talk will provide an outlook of main results in exoplanet research programs and prospects in further characterization of planet structures and atmospheres
