A Survey of Stellar Activity

A Survey of Stellar Activity

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.

Modeling Limitless Skies

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.
