Planetas terrestres rojos: una oportunidad para buscar vida más allá de la Tierra

We present a new activity of the Julio Palacios Chair, a conference by Professor Guillem-Anglada Escudé, which will take place on Tuesday, September 26 at 19:00h in the Auditorium of the Ramón Areces Foundation (C/Vitruvio, 5, 28006 Madrid). The conference is in person and can also be followed live on YouTube. Registration is mandatory at:

Summary: All potentially Earth-like planets in other stars have been found orbiting red dwarfs. This is due to a number of advantages that make them much easier to detect around stars similar to the Sun. Red dwarfs are also the most common stellar type in our galaxy, which means that the sky is full of potentially similar worlds. the earth. Despite sharing massive properties with our own planet, these worlds can have very different surface environments compared to our own. This conference will describe the techniques used to detect and characterize these planets and how we plan to obtain spectroscopic information about their surfaces and, therefore, the composition of their atmospheres, and how from there we can infer the presence of life on them
