Astronomers have been finding planets around M dwarf stars for a while. Can we go even cooler and find planets around the diverse L and T spectral group?
Interplanetary collisions can explain a number of phenomena in our own solar system — here’s evidence of such a crash shaping the formation of two distant planets. Translate from an Astrobitos bite by Elena Gonzales Egea.
Neighboring exoplanets appear to come in similar sizes. But is this a result of observational bias?
Could exocomets be causing these strange shaped lightcurves?
We know that white dwarfs have planets, but there are very few that we have detected directly. An upcoming survey may change that.
Can the properties of a known planet system predict if that system has additional undetected planets?
