We've all heard the fascinating question: "What Makes a Planet Habitable?" In this mini-conference, hosted by UChicago, we're investigating the equally puzzling mirror question: "What Makes a Planet Uninhabitable?" We'll be exploring four topics: The Habitability Spectrum (degrees of habitability), Interior-Atmosphere Exchange, M-Star Atmosphere Loss, and Anti-Biosignatures.

The top recommendation for a large space mission in the US 2010 Decadal Survey was the Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST), which is now on schedule for launch in 2025. Similarities in hardware requirements between proposed dark energy cosmology, exoplanet microlensing, and near infrared surveyor missions allowed for a single mission that would accomplish all three goals.
