The eleventh and twelfth data releases of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey: final data from SDSS-III
The third generation of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS-III) took data from 2008 to 2014 using the original SDSS wide-field imager, the original and an upgraded multi-object fiber-fed opticalExpand
MAMBO Mapping Of Spitzer c2d Small Clouds And Cores
Aims. To study the structure of nearby (<500 pc) dense starless and star-forming cores with the particular goal to identify and understand evolutionary trends in core properties, and to explore theExpand
We describe the photometric calibration and stellar classification methods used by the Stellar Classification Project to produce the Kepler Input Catalog (KIC). The KIC is a catalog containingExpand
Galaxy merger morphologies and time-scales from simulations of equal-mass gas-rich disc mergers
A key obstacle to understanding the galaxy merger rate and its role in galaxy evolution is the difficulty in constraining the merger properties and time-scales from instantaneous snapshots of theExpand
The Anatomy of Star Formation in NGC 300
The Spitzer Space Telescope was used to study the mid- to far-infrared properties of NGC 300 and to compare dust emission to Hα to elucidate the heating of the interstellar medium (ISM) and the starExpand
Internal structure of massive terrestrial planets
Abstract Planetary formation models predict the existence of massive terrestrial planets and experiments are now being designed that should succeed in discovering them and measuring their masses andExpand
Evidence for a systematic offset of -80 micro-arcseconds in the Gaia DR2 parallaxes
We reprise the analysis of Stassun & Torres (2016), comparing the parallaxes of the eclipsing binaries reported in that paper to the parallaxes newly reported in the Gaia second data release (DR2).Expand
Probing the Coevolution of Supermassive Black Holes and Galaxies Using Gravitationally Lensed Quasar Hosts
In the present-day universe, supermassive black hole masses (MBH) appear to be strongly correlated with their galaxy’s bulge luminosity, among other properties. In this study, we explore theExpand
NASA's Kepler Mission uses transit photometry to determine the frequency of Earth-size planets in or near the habitable zone of Sun-like stars. The mission reached a milestone toward meeting thatExpand
