High-tech in space: in search of a second Earth using large telescopes

ARE WE ALONE IN THE UNIVERSE, OR IS THERE A SECOND EARTH?

To answer this question, astronomers study the planets that move around other stars. However, the study of these so-called exoplanets is technically very demanding. This requires large telescopes on the one hand and instruments that are optimized for these measurements on the other. With the James Webb Space Telescope, and in the near future, the world’s largest telescope, the Extremely Large Telescope, it is possible to study a variety of exoplanets. But in order to definitively clarify the question of life on a second Earth, much more ambitious telescopes are needed, which are already being worked on today.

 The talk will be held in German.
