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.
Observations of dim galaxies lensed by foreground clusters provides a way of measuring the progression of reionization.
Well, let’s have a drink and see if that helps us figure things out.
NASA’s TESS spacecraft has launched! Today’s paper predicts how many exoplanets it will find.
Statistical confirmation of long-period, low SNR candidates should be taken with a grain of salt. The reliability is too low to confirm individual systems without followup observations and the 99% confidence validation of Kepler-452b is likely closer to 90%.
Oscillations at the center of the Sun have been observed for the very first time. What do they mean for the rotation of the Sun?
