If you thought the weather on Earth was wild, think again: today we’re discussing the climate of WASP-121b.
An instrument designed to look for exoplanets around the brightest stars in the sky; what have they found so far?
How can we explain hot Jupiters? The answer is not completely clear yet, but we are closing in on it: it seems that binaries may play an important role on the formation of these oddball planets.
What might be the strangest architecture yet of an exoplanetary system was discovered, and it raises big questions as to how planetary systems form and evolve.
This month’s undergraduate research post features a student who looked at how well LSST will be able to detect transiting exoplanets. Read on to find out what she learned!
The past 20 years of exoplanet discovery have unveiled many peculiar planets in the Milky Way. Today’s paper investigates if two classes of these odd planets could be the same planet at different points in their evolutionary history – if hot Jupiters can transform into super-Earths!
