You Are Here:Exocast-18b – Direct Imaging Special

In the 18th episode of Exocast, we chat to Sasha Hinkley, a direct imaging expert at the University of Exeter:

  • “Spotlights & fireflies” – what it means to be able to directly image planets and how we do it.
  • Why direct imaging may not have the numbers compared to other detection techniques, but can give us so much more information on each planet
  • The future of direct imaging instruments, including JWST, WFIRST and the E-ELT.
  • And Sasha adopts the HR 8799 system as an Exocast adopted planet.
