Do you own a digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) camera? The authors of today’s paper do. They used it for astronomy. They used it for science.
Our current best radial velocities are precise to about 1m/s. How do we make the step towards achieving 10cm/s precision?
Recently we have been finding some crazy uses for these unmanned machines. Could investigating the universe be one of them?
The exoplanet hunt is on. The stakes are high. What will our next-generation telescopes find?
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?
Most exoplanets are and have been detected by the transit method. Maybe, we can improve the method even further by drawing conclusions from the recent Venus transits in 2004 and 2012.
