Is it an exoplanet… or is it stellar activity in disguise? In today’s astrobite, we explore the stellar activity for a survey of M-Dwarfs, to help us distinguish signals of M-Dwarf stellar activity from the signals of the exoplanets that may be orbiting them.
As studies have shown, self-care is crucial for a healthy and happy body and mind. Today we go over a collection of self-care habits and resources that can help us all stay sane in the hectic world of academia.
Thick clouds shroud the interiors of gas giants, like Jupiter, in mystery. Today’s authors set out to blow some of that mystery away. Using equations and modeling, they explore processes of heat transfer within the interiors of hot-start, core-accreting gas giants.
For life as we know it, atmospheric composition plays a huge part in planetary habitability. Today we explore a theoretical framework for characterizing and predicting planetary atmospheres, and how that framework can help in the search for Earth-like life on planets beyond our own.
In today’s astrobite, we take a fresh new look at an old problem: modeling the envelopes of CO gas around evolved stars.
