The future of exoplanets: synergy between small-scale and large-scale telescopes

 

Aims and scope
Exoplanet science is currently undergoing a transformation. Interestingly, much of this progress is driven by telescopes of small and moderate apertures (say, of up to 50 cm in space or aboard stratospheric balloons, and 4 m on the ground). These facilities have their own niches in which they are highly complementary to larger telescopes in the detection and characterization of exoplanets. Emphasizing the complementarity between small and large telescopes and the science that can be obtained from each of these classes of facilities is a major motivation for this Symposium.

Also, as new instrumentation on mid and large telescopes now enables characterization of exoplanets, it becomes crucial to highlight the ongoing advances in the exploration of the solar system at both the technical and scientific level. Fostering the exchange of ideas and methods between the solar system and exoplanet communities is also a major motivation for this Symposium.

In summary, we welcome scientific contributions (observational, but also theoretical and modeling) that describe the state-of-the-art in the planetary sciences of the solar system and beyond. We particularly welcome contributions that emphasize: 1) the synergistic role of small and large facilities towards new and exciting discoveries; 2) the significance of exchanging ideas within the entire planetary community.

3) Titan after Cassini-Huygens, ESAC, Madrid, 23-25 September 2019

This is to announce the ‘Titan after Cassini-Huygens’ 3-day workshop to be held at the European Space Agency (ESA –European Space Astronomy Centre) near Madrid on 23-25 September 2019.
 
This workshop will occur 2 years after the end of Cassini’s wonderful mission and its central theme would be a holistic view of Titan as a system. During the workshop we will discuss the exciting results from the Huygens probe and from the Cassini orbiter during its 13 years journey in the Saturnian system. The mission returned a wealth of scientific data that have revolutionized our understanding of Saturn’s largest moon, Titan. Major topics of the workshop will include the top scientific findings on the surface, interior, and atmosphere, and their processes and interactions. The aim is to cover a combination of past and new science focusing on the fields and studies of: magnetospheric & atmospheric science, geology, geophysics, astrobiology, Earth-based observations, future missions and more.
 
We believe that the timing is perfect for another European workshop to get an updated global vision of Titan and we encourage you all to participate.

Please find all the necessary information including the abstract submission and registration options here:

Résumé de la session "Dynamics and evolution of planets from observations, experiments and models":

The dynamics and evolution of planets and other large objects (satellites, dwarf planets) are largely driven by density contrasts between the surface and depth, owing to temperature, composition or partial melt formation. Early in their history, this contrast may lead to differentiation and crust formation at the planet surface. On longer times scales, convection acts to erase this contrast, in liquid as well as solid shells, at a rate controlled by the imbalance between heat production, in particular radiogenic, and heat loss. Convective processes are at the origin of many potentially observable features of planets, like volcanism, surface currents on liquid or gaseous planets, topography of solid surface planets, magnetic fields that are generated by dynamo action in the planets’ liquid shells. Some of these signals are also blurred by surface processes like weathering or cratering. This symposium welcomes all contributions addressing the present and past dynamics of planets using any of all the complementary approaches, like observations from satellites, meteorites or landers, experiments and models. Results linked to space exploration missions are encouraged (e.g. New horizon, Juno, Cassini...) . A specific focus will be given to the first results of the Insight mission that has landed on Mars on November 26th 2018 and that will provide important clues on its internal deep and shallow structure and dynamics.


Résumé de la session "Scale-up of life and planet habitability detection from in situ to astronomical remote analyses”
More than 5,000 planetary candidates were identified and it was estimated that about 1 in 5 Sun-like stars have an "Earth-sized" planet in the habitable zone. The search for life mainly coincides with that of Circumstellar Habitable Zones but as surface water observation is substantially difficult and its existence is inferred by combining gravitational and tidal theories with models of planetary differentiation.
For the last decades, the exploration of the particular Martian surface has been "following the water" both by in situ and orbital observations. It has been recently shown that Mars was once a habitable planet (fluvio-lacustrine depositional environments) and belongs, on par with Earth, to the circumsolar habitable belt. Investigations of a large spectrum of biosignatures, from the nm to several m scales, were jointly initiated to define new conceptual and technical tools to guide the routes of the rovers. Biosignatures were defined in their broad sense that includes organism morphologies (cells, body fossils, casts), biofabrics (including microbial mats), diagnostic organic molecules, isotopic signatures, evidence of biomineralization and bioalteration, spatial patterns in chemistry and biogenic gases. Surface rocks such as clay-bearing sedimentary rocks, lacustrine carbonates, hydrated ultrabasic rocks, hydrothermal veins were assessed as potential biosignature repositories of paleobiological information, i.e. appropriate loci for the development (habitability) and preservation of biosignatures. A great deal of effort has been applied to retrieve the potential practical value of these rocks in the perspective of the future Mars Sample Return missions.
Reviewing how such microscopic biosignatures and biosignature repositories could be detected by remote observations, either directly or by their observed or modeled spectral impact, has to be updated to propose new « observables » and provide constraints to conceive future instruments in the search for life on exoplanets.
This session will be introduced by a 30 min keynote lecture, given by an exoplanet astrophysicist followed by a few short astronomical talks to draw up the status of the search for life on exoplanets. This part will be followed by talks which illustrate or constrain the limit of the current remote/in situ combinations based on the Mars surface investigation. The session will be concluded by talks dedicated to the discussion of the potential links between remote detection and state-of-the-art laboratory/field biosignatures.

2) BlueMUSE @ESO/VLT

Bonjour,

Je vous contacte  au sujet d’un nouvel instrument que nous proposons pour le VLT, appelé BlueMUSE.  
Avec Roland Bacon nous proposons ce concept à l’ESO pour une phase A, et qui consiste à un IFU
visible comme l’instrument actuel MUSE, et les caractéristiques suivantes :

- une couverture dans le bleu, de 350 à 600 nm
- une résolution spectrale 2x celle de MUSE (R=3000-5000 de 350 à 600 nm)
- un champ de vue 2 fois plus large en surface (1.4 x 1.4 arcmin)

Un résumé du projet est mentionné ici:
https://bluemuse.univ-lyon1.fr/

Même si une majorité de cas scientifiques concernent la science extragalactique / PNCG, nous proposons
un cas scientifique sur les comètes dont j’attache quelques pages extraites de notre proposition à ce
mail. Ce n’est très certainement pas le seul cas scientifique qui pourrait intéresser la communauté PNP.

BlueMUSE sera proposé en 2019 à l’ESO et à ce titre fait partie de la liste des moyens sols sur lesquels les
programmes nationaux sont amenés à se prononcer dans le cadre de la prospective INSU. Il nous semblait
important de vous informer de cette demande et du cas scientifique si une partie de la communauté PNP y
trouve un intérêt scientifique.

Bien cordialement,

Johan Richard

PS: N'hésitez pas à me faire remonter vos remarques, suggestions, intérêts pour cette proposition. Thierry

Registration and abstract submission are now open for the science conference New Horizons in Planetary Systems. The meeting is jointly organized by NRC Herzberg and NRAO  – as part of their roles within the North American ALMA Science Center (NAASC) and will have a broad scope, including planetary systems in formation within protoplanetary disks, minor objects in the solar system, debris disks and exoplanets. Experts will be asked to provide insights from all these fields to enhance our understanding of how planets form and evolve. Although it is organized by the NAASC, the meeting is not ALMA-centric, with a strong focus on the impact of the New Horizons mission flyby of a Kuiper Belt Object in January 2019, as well as experts from the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite and other facilities, who will be asked to provide a multi-chromatic picture of the current understanding in their fields. Invited speakers have been asked to provide broadly accessible talks.
 
The meeting will be held at the Victoria Conference Centre in the heart of picturesque Victoria, British Columbia, on Canada's Pacific coast. Local attractions include whale watching, wine tours, the world-famous Butchart Gardens, and the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory.  Excellent beaches, diving, camping and hiking are all within a day's drive from Victoria.

9) Two sessions at AOGS 2019, Singapore, from 28 July to 2 August 2019

PS05: Cassini's Legacy: Science Highlights and Discoveries at Saturn

Session Summary:
The Cassini-Huygens Mission to Saturn ended in a dramatic plunge into Saturn’s atmosphere on September 15, 2017 sending back in-situ data as long as possible. Since 2004, Cassini and the Huygens probe revealed the entire Saturn system and opened up new Ocean Worlds for further exploration. In its final 9 months Cassini’s 20 Ring-Grazing orbits bought it just outside the rings followed by a series of 22 highly inclined “Grand Finale” orbits with closest approach between the innermost D ring and Saturn’s upper atmosphere. The final 22 orbits enabled the opportunity for unique science observations including: probing of gravitational and magnetic field moments to higher order and precision; determining the ring mass; in-situ sampling of the plasma environment, upper atmosphere and exosphere; and imaging both Saturn and rings at high resolution. Data obtained on these orbits have led to surprising results. We propose a multi-disciplinary session to report on analysis and modeling of data collected during this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to explore Saturn up close in addition to highlighting the legacy of discoveries of the Saturn system made over thirteen years of exploration.

Conveners:
Scott Edgington, Sushil Atreya, Athena Coustenis, Wing-Huen Ip, Norbert Krupp

    We look forward to hear about your latest Cassini research.

Best regards,
Scott, Sushil, Athena, Wing, and Norbert
