Masses, Radii, and Orbits of Small Kepler Planets: The Transition From Gaseous to Rocky Planets
We report on the masses, sizes, and orbits of the planets orbiting 22 Kepler stars. There are 49 planet candidates around these stars, including 42 detected through transits and 7 revealed by preciseExpand

THE FLAT TRANSMISSION SPECTRUM OF THE SUPER-EARTH GJ1214b FROM WIDE FIELD CAMERA 3 ON THE HUBBLE SPACE TELESCOPE
Capitalizing on the observational advantage oered by its tiny M dwarf host, we present HST/WFC3 grism measurements of the transmission spectrum of the super-Earth exoplanet GJ1214b. These are the rstExpand

OBSERVATIONAL EVIDENCE FOR A METAL-RICH ATMOSPHERE ON THE SUPER-EARTH GJ1214b
We report observations of two consecutive transits of the warm super-Earth exoplanet GJ 1214b at 3.6 and 4.5 ?m with the Infrared Array Camera instrument on board the Spitzer Space Telescope. The twoExpand

Detection of Oxygen and Carbon in the Hydrodynamically Escaping Atmosphere of the Extrasolar Planet HD 209458b
Four transits of the planet orbiting the star HD 209458 were observed with the Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph on board the Hubble Space Telescope. The wavelength domain (1180-1710 A) includes HExpand

A PRECISE WATER ABUNDANCE MEASUREMENT FOR THE HOT JUPITER WASP-43b
The water abundance in a planetary atmosphere provides a key constraint on the planet’s primordial origins because water ice is expected to play an important role in the core accretion model ofExpand

The Optical and Near-infrared Transmission Spectrum of the Super-Earth GJ?1214b: Further Evidence for a Metal-rich Atmosphere
We present an investigation of the transmission spectrum of the 6.5 M ? planet GJ?1214b based on new ground-based observations of transits of the planet in the optical and near-infrared, and onExpand

The GJ1214 Super-Earth System: Stellar Variability, New Transits, and a Search for Additional Planets
The super-Earth GJ1214b transits a nearby M dwarf that exhibits a 1% intrinsic variability in the near-infrared. Here, we analyze new observations to refine the physical properties of both the starExpand
