We hear a lot about exoplanet observations and the results from atmospheric modeling. But what is the magic that happens in between?? Here we take a look at the exciting bridge between exoplanet observations and atmospheric modeling.
Our current best radial velocities are precise to about 1m/s. How do we make the step towards achieving 10cm/s precision?
The past 20 years of exoplanet discovery have unveiled many peculiar planets in the Milky Way. Today’s paper investigates if two classes of these odd planets could be the same planet at different points in their evolutionary history – if hot Jupiters can transform into super-Earths!
If parallel Universes exist, their fundamental laws of physics may be different to ours. How sensitive is the existence of life to these laws? Read on to find out.
Often science is a competition. Being first is sometimes important to get the well deserved credit for your work. Circumplanetary disks are currently a topic, in which you can still be first, since none has been detected so far. But is the current generation of telescopes already good enough to do that?
The exoplanet hunt is on. The stakes are high. What will our next-generation telescopes find?
