The Birth of the Solar System

Speaker: Dr. Fabian Heitsch
Assistant Professor
UNC Chapel Hill

Planets around other stars are discovered nearly daily now, some of them Earth-like.  What does it need to make stars and planets? Come and find out about the birth and death of stars, and what it takes to build a solar system.

Science Saturday programs, held in Windows on the World Theater on the first Saturday of every month, highlight the vast world of scientific research and allow attendees to interact with experts in a variety of scientific fields. All are welcome to attend.
