Towards Improved Occurrence Rates of Exoplanets: The Properties of Stars Observed by Kepler

Daniel Huber (SETI Institute)


Abstract: The detection of over 3000 new exoplanets by the NASA Kepler mission has opened up the possibility to infer the occurrence rate of planets in the habitable zones of stars in our galaxy. However, both the characteristics of the detected planets and their occurrence rates crucially depend on our understanding of properties of the stars that were observed. In this talk I will present current efforts to improve our understanding of fundamental properties of Kepler target stars and their planets, in particular using the technique of asteroseismology. I will furthermore discuss the prospects of Kepler’s follow-up mission, K2, for advancing our understanding of exoplanets and stellar astrophysics.

SETI Institute

The mission of the SETI Institute is to explore, understand and explain the origin, nature and prevalence of life in the universe.

We believe we are conducting the most profound search in human history — to know our beginnings and our place among the stars.

The SETI Institute is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to scientific research, education and public outreach.

Every week the SETI Institute hosts a lecture series that is open to the public and gives people a unique opportunity to interact with some of the world's leading space scientists.
