The Cradle of the Sun - Did Our Solar System Form in a Star Cluster? A talk by Dr Richard J Parker

Clanfield Memorial Hall, South Lane Clanfield Hants PO8 0RB
Fri Jan 11, 2019
Time: 7.30 for 7.45pm start
Price: £3 for non members, on the door
Dr Parker is a Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellow, working at the University of Sheffield who delivered a talk about the "Search for Planet 9" at the 2018 BAA Winchester Weekend. For this talk, he will be considering where our Sun was born.  Stars like the Sun do not form in isolation, but rather in the company of tens to millions of other stars. These stellar birth-places are often very hostile astrophysical environments, where planets can be disrupted or prevented from forming altogether. However, there are several strands of evidence that suggest the Sun MUST have formed in such a dense environment. In this talk, Dr Parker will discuss the evidence for and against the Solar System's formation within a star cluster.
