HAT-P-7b was one of the first exoplanets with evidence of atmospheric variability, but hold off on your application to be its resident weather forecaster! Today’s paper casts a shadow on the original detection…
As part of our #BlackInAstro series for Black History Month, we interview Dr. Gibor Basri, a pioneer in stellar astronomy (one of the discoverers of brown dwarfs) and the founding Vice Chancellor for Equity and Inclusion at UC Berkeley!
By comparing the Sun to its analogs, astronomers found that it probably needs some coffee.
In the latest of our #UndergradResearch series, discover how Larissa Palethorpe finds a way to get more information out of transit light curves.
In the latest of our #UndergradResearch series, Stan DeLaurentiis asks how reliable our Hα measurements of low-mass stars really are? And are they really solely influenced by a star’s magnetic activity?
Today’s undergraduate research post is seeking to understand stellar activity better to help in the search for Earth-like planets.
