New Young Stars with Actively Accreting Planets
Our understanding of how stars and planets form is informed by newly born groups of stars. The nearest group to us is the Scorpius-Centaurus association, at a distance of 400 lightyears, which contains the iconic Southern-Cross. We are searching for faint members of this association with WiFeS, looking for Lithium in their atmospheres, which is totally burnt up in older stars like the sun.
