By combining galaxy formation histories and planet formation models, we can estimate the number of potential civilizations in our Universe.
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…
