Exoplanets: present status and future opportunities
The first exoplanet orbiting a sun-like star was discovered barely 25yr ago. Since then there has been tremendous progress both in the discovery of new planetary systems and their characterisation which belies the difficulty in their detection. In this talk I will review our current knowledge of exoplanets and the challenges they present. I will also look forward to new experiments that form the exoplanet roadmap going forward to the end of the next decade and predict what our state of knowledge will be at that time.
