You’ve probably heard of the star in today’s paper. The “WTF star” (WTF stands for “Where’s the flux?” of course) has been in the media since its discovery and two follow-up papers hit astro-ph. Today, a group of astrobiters pool our expertise to bring you a comprehensive look at KIC 8462852 and what new observations may reveal.
Our current best radial velocities are precise to about 1m/s. How do we make the step towards achieving 10cm/s precision?
Much of what we know today about exoplanets is due to the success of the radial velocity method. Where does it stand now? What is its future?
The years of 2014 and 2015 may well be known as the time when our exploration of the solar system truly took off, as we explored asteroids, comets, and minor planets. Here’s a look back at what we’ve accomplished in the last year, and what we’re about to achieve in the year to come.
