Planet formation and the search for life [Astro et al Ep.9]

How do planets form? What material do the form from? How can we look for life? Will we be able to find something that resembles life? In this episode I talk to Christian Eistrup about simulation on planet formation, Christian is a P.h.D student at Leiden University. We talked about chemistry, accretion discs, what happens if we find Oxygen out there? Are there chemical reactions in planet-forming regions?
