   We would like to

 cordially invite you to this exceptional talk at the

 University of Toronto.

 jointly

 Stars and planets formation and possibility of

 life in solar system and exosolar planets



 by Dr. Mohaddesseh Azimlu



 Location: University of TorontoThursday

 May 29th, 2014









 Abstract:

 Did

 you know that many elements in your body have been
created

 in stars? Stars continually born from gaseous dusty
clouds

 and die and recycle back into interstellar medium in our
own

 galaxy, the Milky Way, and other galaxies.  Giant
hydrogen

 clouds collapse into disks rotating around proto-stars.

 Planetary systems similar to our own solar system form

 within these proto-planetary disks. In the case of our
solar

 system, there was just enough material left over at the

 right temperature to form rocky planets like the Earth,
Mars

 and Venus within 250 million kilometers of the Sun.
Farther

 out, where temperatures were cooler and more material was

 available, gas giants formed.



 Among the countless stars

 visible in the night sky, how many are surrounded by
solar

 systems like our own? Scientists believe the number of
other

 worlds may depend on the mechanism by which stars and

 planets are born. An estimation, supported by the very

 recent observations of Kepler space observatory suggests

 that planets like our own and within habitable zone may
be

 common throughout our Galaxy.

 her research on star formation in other galaxies at
Western

 University in London, Ontario and later joined

 Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in 2011. Dr.

 Azimlu employs world-class telescopes around the world
for

 her research and has been awarded more than 200 hours of
