In this paper, the authors discuss a unique system called TOI-1130 which contains both a hot Jupiter and a mini-Neptune.
An international team of astronomers discover an ultra-hot Jupiter where liquid iron literally rains from the skies.
What do the atmospheres of ultra-hot Jupiters and 70s music have in common? A good deal of metal.
Mapping the atmospheres and surfaces of exoplanets is ailed by degeneracies due to the choice of map structure and orbital parameter uncertainties. Today’s paper attempts to solve this by using a principal component analysis approach.
Scrutinizing a popular method of characterizing exoplanet atmospheres reveals an inherent degeneracy that may only be overcome in special cases.
Cues from stellar atmospheric chemistry can help in explaining the observations of very-hot gas giant atmospheres.
