A combination of infrared spectrograph and laser frequency comb provides unprecedented precisions in the hunt for habitable planets around nearby, cool stars.
Some hot Jupiters that like living dangerously are spiraling rapidly into their stars. Could that be connected to how squishy and wobbly they are?
What can highly inclined giant worlds tell us about the presence of terrestrial companions?
A cloud-free world offers the clearest view yet of an exoplanet atmosphere.
We report on Day 4 of the winter AAS meeting in Seattle, WA. Highlights include an exploding space cow, a discussion of data in astronomy, the latest look at the possibility of life beyond earth, and an exploration of climate impact much closer to home.
How do the protoplanetary disks around young pre-main sequence stars evolve into planetary systems? Come attend Dr. Catherine Espaillat’s plenary talk “From Disks to Planets: Observing Planet Formation in Disks Around Young Stars” at #AAS233 to know more!
