Boise State’s Institute for STEM and Diversity Initiatives is hosting Aerospace Day here on campus today, a day to explore the science, engineering, and applications of aerospace technology.
I volunteered to give a talk on our group’s research looking for short-period exoplanets, and it seemed well-received. Lots of interesting questions afterward. I’ve posted the talk below.
During my talk, I mentioned the planethunters.org website, where the public can help find new exoplanets using data from the Kepler mission.
Thanks to Christine Chang Gillespie, Donna Llewellyn, and all the other organizers for the invitation to speak.
