Today’s paper explores different possibilities causing the brown dwarf CWW 89Ab to be overly bright.
Today we explore how to handle grad school rejection, with different career paths and anecdotes from similar experiences.
It has long been theorized that exoplanet atmospheres should be partially composed of helium — now we finally have our first detection in the atmosphere of Wasp-107b. Today’s bite explains how the authors observed helium and discuss what this means for the atmosphere of this planet.
Using new Gaia data, the authors update the stellar radii for the majority of Kepler’s stars. While they find that most stars have similar radii to previous reported values, there are some large discrepancies.
Multiple exoplanets appear to have a cloud or haze layer in their atmosphere, though the production rate of this haze remains unknown. Today, we discuss a new approach to answering this question: creating exoplanetary haze in the lab.
