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?
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%.
How can variable objects be found in crowded TESS observations?
Using simulations, the author explores the possibility of observing seasonal changes on warm Jupiters with JWST.
The hottest point in hot Jupiter atmospheres should be directly below their star or blown slightly eastward by winds. What is happening on CoRoT-2b?
