New Discoveries with Disk Detective: M Dwarfs, Peter Pan Disks, and More
Steven Silverberg (U. of Oklahoma/GSFC)

Abstract: In its four years since launch, DiskDetective.org has led to many new discoveries in the field of circumstellar disks. This presentation gives a brief overview of the project, and highlights our new results. We present the results of our full-sky search for M dwarf debris disks, the first such search. We also highlight the discovery of the first "Peter Pan" disk, a 45-Myr primordial disk around an M5 star in the Carina association, and our new findings about this class of system.
