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?
A new analysis technique, that fits simultaneously for light-curve systematics and transit signals, finds 36 planet candidates in the K2 dataset — Kepler is still in the game!
Measuring CMB distortions caused by gravitational lensing is a unique way of estimating galaxy cluster masses.
Many exoplanets in our galaxy are all alone. They have no one to cuddle up to on those cold, lonely nights in space…
There does not seem to be enough mass in protoplanetary disks to build the planetary systems we’ve detected. The solution: planet formation might start sooner than previously thought.
