Bringing space inside the lab: Researchers replicate the climates of exoplanets to help find extraterrestrial life

Dec. 15, 2021

Professor Greg Rieker and Ryan Cole (PhDMechEngr’21) have developed an experiment that recreates the climates of planets beyond our solar system right in the lab. By reaching the same high-temperature and high-pressure conditions found on many exoplanets, the instrument can map their atmospheres, which could help humanity detect life outside our solar system.
