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.
This wasn’t a week of watching; it was a week of doing.
Is CoRoT-7d real, or is it stellar activity masquerading as a planet? Haywood et al. build a noise model to analyze CoRoT-7’s activity to find out.
