2. Using SKA to decipher the chemical and granulometric distribution of dust in protoplanetary disks, to be compared with the chondrite evidence
Prof. Josep TRIGO-RODRIGUEZ (IEEC/CSIC, Spain)
Dr. Izaskun Jimenez Serra (Queen Mary University of London, UK)
In this talk I will provide a review of the current activities and future plans of the Cradle of Life working group. The deployment of the high frequency Band 5 receivers of the SKA will enable key science in the field of planet formation and Astrobiology. While the unprecedented high-angular resolution of SKA1-Mid will allow to image the thermal emission of centimetre-sized dust...
