Today’s authors take a multi-faceted approach to characterising a benchmark subgiant star using asteroseismology, interferometry, and spectroscopy.
Neighboring exoplanets appear to come in similar sizes. But is this a result of observational bias?
Today’s authors use a new technique to make new discoveries about the Seven Sisters.
The era of petabyte and exabyte astronomical surveys is rapidly approaching. How will we store all this data and ensure its longevity for future decades of astronomers? Check out Dr. Alex Szalay’s plenary talk at #AAS233 to find out!
An novel method that could add texture to other worlds.
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.
