Planet Occurrence within 0.25 AU of Solar-Type Stars from Kepler
We report the distribution of planets as a function of planet radius, orbital period, and stellar effective temperature for orbital periods less than 50 days around solar-type (GK) stars. TheseExpand

Initial Characteristics of Kepler Long Cadence Data for Detecting Transiting Planets
The Kepler Mission seeks to detect Earth-size planets transiting solar-like stars in its ~115?deg2 field of view over the course of its 3.5 year primary mission by monitoring the brightness of eachExpand

Initial Characteristics of Kepler Short Cadence Data
The Kepler Mission offers two options for observations -- either Long Cadence (LC) used for the bulk of core mission science, or Short Cadence (SC) which is used for applications such asExpand

PLANETARY CANDIDATES OBSERVED BY KEPLER. III. ANALYSIS OF THE FIRST 16 MONTHS OF DATA
New transiting planet candidates are identified in 16 months (2009 May-2010 September) of data from the Kepler spacecraft. Nearly 5000 periodic transit-like signals are vetted against astrophysicalExpand

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

Strong water absorption in the dayside emission spectrum of the planet HD 189733b
Recent observations of the extrasolar planet HD 189733b did not reveal the presence of water in the emission spectrum of the planet. Yet models of such ‘hot-Jupiter’ planets predict an abundance ofExpand

The Derivation, Properties and Value of Kepler's Combined Differential Photometric Precision
The Kepler Mission is searching for Earth-size planets orbiting solar-like stars by simultaneously observing >160,000 stars to detect sequences of transit events in the photometric light curves. TheExpand

A Spitzer Infrared Spectrograph Spectral Sequence of M, L, and T Dwarfs
We present a low-resolution (R ≡ λ/Δλ ≈ 90), 5.5-38 μm spectral sequence of a sample of M, L, and T dwarfs obtained with the Infrared Spectrograph (IRS) on board the Spitzer Space Telescope. TheExpand
