Can the properties of a known planet system predict if that system has additional undetected planets?
Transiting exoplanets generally orbit in the same plane, so how is this planet so misaligned in this multi-planet system?
With the launch of TESS, we will soon have many more exoplanet candidates. But how do we determine which are the most valuable for follow-up observations?
Astronomers are using a once-secret technology to scrutinize Kepler stars. Are rocky planets headed for a takedown?
Using new Gaia data, the authors update the stellar radii for the majority of Kepler’s stars. While they find that most stars have similar radii to previous reported values, there are some large discrepancies.
NASA’s TESS spacecraft has launched! Today’s paper predicts how many exoplanets it will find.
