Exquisite measurements of physical and chemical properties of protoplanetary disks from ALMA hold important clues to the history of planet formation. Come listen to Dr. Lauren Ilsedore Cleeves’ plenary lecture at #AAS233 to know more!
A possible super-Earth was discovered 6 light years from us around Barnard’s star, but does it actually exist?
Five candidate exoplanets have been found! Read this bite to find out if there are aliens on them! Just kidding… but today’s paper does cover how these candidates were found as well as their potential properties.
For tightly packed exoplanet systems, tidal force from other planets may be a significant factor to consider.
Today, let’s take a look at the connection between planetary system types and host star metallicities.
Planets form from protoplanetary disks. How they can be heavier on average than the disks is questioning our theories of planet formation.
