Unfolding the Evolution of Planetary Systems (PLANES)

Start date: Sep 1, 2010, End date: Aug 31, 2014,

"Most of the exoplanets discovered to date orbit solar mass main-sequence stars. Essential to the detection and characterization of extrasolar planets is the knowledge of planetary systems around as many diverse stars as possible. In this context, surveys are now targeting planets around stars that have evolved off the Main Sequence, because, so far, it is one of the few means we have of directly ...
