Helioseismology is a powerful tool for understanding the interior of our closest star. Can it also be used to observe the solar surface?
Gas giant planets are most common around metal-rich stars. But are the planets themselves also metal-rich?
Ever wanted to estimate some cosmological parameters but your MCMC chains are too slow? Check out today’s paper for a method to speed up your estimation using iterative emulation.
Evaporating close-in planets could be found more efficiently if you look for them around stars enshrouded in the escaping planetary material.
The TESS mission has found an Earth-like planet in the habitable zone of its star, but the question of how the system formed is baffling astronomers.

Long-term space missions have left us with a wealth of stellar data. Come to Dr. Jennifer van Saders’s talk at #AAS235 to learn more about how these data, along with stellar models, can reveal a star’s evolutionary past and future.
Professor Ted Bergin is looking for the elements that make habitable worlds. Come learn about how to make an Earth-like planet in his talk at #AAS235!
We’ve seen supernovae, but what’s a kilonova? Professor Brian Metzger will tell us all about these high energy events in his talk at #AAS235.
