Michel Mayor und Didier Queloz entdecken Planeten ausserhalb des Sonnensystems - swissinfo

1995 machten zwei Schweizer Astrophysiker an der Universität Genf eine Entdeckung, welche die moderne Astronomie revolutionieren sollte: Michel Mayor, Professor für Astrophysik, und der Doktorand Didier Queloz beobachteten den ersten Planeten ausserhalb unseres Sonnensystems auf seiner Umlaufbahn um einen Stern in einer Entfernung von 42 Lichtjahren. Zwölf Jahre später entdeckten sie Gliese 581 c, einen grossen terrestrischen extrasolaren Planeten, der um den Roten Zwerg Gliese 581 kreist. Nun untersuchen sie, ob auf diesem erdähnlichen Planeten lebensfreundliche Bedingungen herrschen. (Die Reihe "SCIENCEsuisse" ist eine nationale Serie der SRG SSR idée suisse.)

Denis Duboule is a world-renowned specialist in developmental genetics. He was one of the first to take an interest in Hox or Architect genes, revealing their essential role in limb formation. In his laboratory at Geneva University, he studies the differences between vertebrates, which include mammals, and invertebrates, from which vertebrates derive. His findings have important implications for understanding the evolution of species.
