[BAO01-01] Habitable Planet Searches around Red Dwarfs: Ground and Space

★Invited papers

*Motohide Tamura1 (1.The University of Tokyo, Graduate School of Science)

Keywords:exoplanet, IRD, TESS, habitable planet

Red dwarfs or M-type stars are the most abundant stars in the Milky Way Galaxy. Therefore, the Earth-like small planet searches around red dwarfs, in particular the habitable Earth-like planet searches, are one of the most important topics in astrobiology. In this talk, I will introduce such searches with ground-based facilities like Subaru/IRD and those with space-based facilities like TESS mission. Then I will outline the future characterization plan of the targets discovered by these projects.
