  • Searching for Life - Undergraduate Astrobiology research featured in RPI's new School of Science brochure - Douglas Whittet
    to make planetary life came to be Where did it come from and how was it formed And since it happened here in our solar system is it likely to happen elsewhere as well said Doug Whittet center director and Professor of Physics Applied Physics and Astronomy Professor Whittet uses the spectrum of light coming from dust clouds surrounding young stars or in interstellar space to determine what molecules may be present in the clouds Varun Bajaj a student of physics astronomy and electronic arts joined Whittet s research group after taking his Origin of Life class Astrobiology uses many of the sciences chemistry biology physics and it leads to results that help explain the evolution of life Bajaj who turned data from the Spitzer Space Telescope into an infrared spectrum of an interstellar cloud said he chose Rensselaer for its emphasis on science math and engineering and also for the accessibility of undergraduate research The thing that drew me to RPI was how in depth the research opportunities are and also how wide it is across all the sciences You have an endless stream of opportunities as an undergraduate Twitter Digg Facebook Delicious StumbleUpon This entry was posted by
