Can exoplanetary systems remain intact in dense stellar environments, or are their exoplanets destined to be flung into the far reaches of space? N-body simulations hint at characteristics that lead to a higher likelihood of survival.
A new technique allows for precise measurements of the brightest stars observed by the Kepler and K2 missions. For its debut, the authors looked at the Pleiades Cluster.
Today’s post investigates how multitasking TESS is not only detecting exoplanets, but ‘listening’ to their stars, allowing us to find out more about both planet and star.
Could exocomets be causing these strange shaped lightcurves?
There are a lot of Sun-like stars in the universe. Are they as identical as the name suggests, or are there important differences between them?
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.
