Some planets were known to the ancients whowatched them move against the night sky.Courtesy NASA’s Navigator Program2

Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, andSaturn were the “Wandering Stars.”Courtesy NASA’s Navigator Program“Planet” comes from the Greek word for “wanderer.”

And other planets were “discovered.”UranusThe year 1781The first planet “discovered.”William and Caroline HerschelNeptuneThe year 1846First observed by Galle and d'Arrest(based on calculations by Adamsand Le Verrier).PlutoThe year 1930Discovered by Clyde TombaughCourtesy NASA’s Navigator Program5

But what about more distant worlds? Thousandsof years ago, Greek philosophers speculated.“There are infiniteworlds both like andunlike this world ofours...We mustbelieve that in allworlds there are livingcreatures and planetsand other things wesee in this world.”Epicuriusc. 300 B.CCourtesy NASA’s Navigator Program

And so did medievalscholars. The year 1584"There are countless suns andcountless earths all rotatingaround their suns in exactlythe same way as the sevenplanets of our system . . .The countless worlds in theuniverse are no worse andno less inhabited than ourEarth”Giordano Brunoin De L'infinitoUniverso E MondiCourtesy NASA’s Navigator Program4

Methods to Detect PlanetsSpitzer, for the first time,captured the light from twoknown planets orbiting starsother than our Sun. But so far,most of the extra-solarplanets are being detectedusing INDIRECT methods.Artist Concept:NASA’s Spitzer Infrared Telescope

Methods to Detect PlanetsThere are several complementary methodsfor detecting planets orbiting distant stars.WobbleDoppler – detecting the star wobbling in the line of sightdue to the planet’s gravitational pullAstrometry – detecting tiny wobble of stars againstother stars in the background.Planet Transit – detecting a tiny drop in brightness ofthe star as a planet passes in frontCoronograph – blotting out the light of the star soplanets can be “seen”TransitCoronographAstrometry

Massive Planets Cause Stars to Wobble• Stars and their planets also moveabout the common center of mass.• Since the mass of a star is so muchgreater than the mass of a planet,the “center of mass” (i.e. “balancepoint”) is located close to (but not atthe center) of the parent star.• This means that stars with planetsin orbit around them are notstationary. Rather, they move slightlyabout this balance point producing agravitational wobble!• The gravitational wobble of the Sunis dominated by the gravity of themost massive planet Jupiter.Star moving toward observer(positive velocity)far sideof orbitStar moving awaynear sideof orbit

NASA’s SIM PlanetQuest MissionAre there terrestrial planets orbiting nearby stars?NASA’s SIM PlanetQuestMission will survey nearbystars for Earth-size planets bymeasuring the wobble of starsagainst other stars in thebackground.Artist Conception: NASA’s SIM PlanetQuestThis method of detection iscalled astrometry.

Doppler shift to measure the tug of planets onstars. Here is how it works:So far, nearly all extrasolarplanets have beendiscovered with thistechniqueIf an unseenplanet tugs thestar back andforth……the light fromthe star shiftsslightly to thered as the starmoves away fromyou.…and slightly tothe blue as itmoves towardyou.Astronomers candetect these shiftsby very carefullyobserving thespectra (or colors) ofthe stars.Courtesy NASA’s Navigator Program

Detecting Planets: Transit MethodKeplerNASA’s Keplermission will usethe transit method.When a planet passes by (or transits) astar, we can detect a slight decrease inthe amount of light from the star.

Graphite, TiC ysolid Si as SiCPyroxeneMgSiO3OlivineMg2SiO4Mg/Si abundance ratios are larger in planet-host stars than in stars withoutknown planets, although part of this signature is probably due to chemicalevolution effects since planet-host stars are on average more metal-rich thansingle stars.

It is possible, in principle anyway, that the low Li abundances ofthe Sun and 16 Cyg B with respect to 16 Cyg A may be relatedto the presence of planetary companion. Li abundances of 47UMa, and HD114762 might further support such a connectionbetween planets/disks, angular momentum evolution, andphotospheric Li abundance.King et al.
