How was the Earth formed from cosmic dust, 4.5 billion years ago? That is one of the fundamental questions of our existence. To answer this question, astronomers use the largest telescopes on Earth, such as the Very Large Telescope (VLT) and the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA), to find birthplaces of planets near young stars. The aim is to observe the process of planet formation as it takes place. In his talk, Cornelis P. Dullemond shows what kind of observations are made and how they are interpreted. He also presents very recent breakthrough results, in which cradles of planets are observed in unprecedented detail, and he discusses what we are learning about these latest observations.

Cornelis P. Dullemond ist Professor für theoretische Astrophysik am Zentrum für Astronomie der Universität Heidelberg.
