We usually assume that all exoplanets are perfectly round. Today’s authors wonder: what are we getting wrong if some are slightly squished?
Today’s bite takes a look at the brown dwarf KELT-1b and the curious results of recent observations of its atmosphere
Today’s paper explores a promising method for detecting and constraining exoplanetary magnetic fields: measuring their effects on a host star’s radio emission during transits.
Today’s authors search for polka dots of concentrated magnetic flux on the surface of a subgiant star.
So far, astronomers have no confirmed detections of planets outside our Galaxy. Today’s paper searches for planets of extragalactic origin, from a dwarf galaxy that has since merged into the Milky Way halo.
Happy Pride Month! Today we talk with Dr. Kaitlin Rasmussen, a cutting-edge astronomer pushing the boundaries of both science *and* gender.
