Talk Summary

Worlds outside the solar system continue to amaze us with their sheer diversity. We will take a guided tour through a menagerie of planets at the very limits of our understanding: planets more extreme than their stars, planets that were born in conditions vastly different from our own, and planets are falling apart in front of our eyes. Finally, we will discuss the prospects for life in each of these cases.
