A seven-planet resonant chain in TRAPPIST-1
The TRAPPIST-1 system is the first transiting planet system found orbiting an ultra-cool dwarf star. At least seven planets similar to Earth in radius and in mass were previously found to transitExpand
The PLATO 2.0 mission
PLATO 2.0 has recently been selected for ESA’s M3 launch opportunity (2022/24). Providing accurate key planet parameters (radius, mass, density and age) in statistical numbers, it addressesExpand
Planet Hunters IX. KIC 8462852-where's the flux?
TSB acknowledges support provided through NASA grant ADAP12-0172 and ADAP14-0245. MCW and GMK acknowledge the support of the European Union through ERC grant number 279973. The authors acknowledgeExpand
The nature of the TRAPPIST-1 exoplanets.
Context. The TRAPPIST-1 system hosts seven Earth-sized, temperate exoplanets orbiting an ultra-cool dwarf star. As such, it represents a remarkable setting to study the formation and evolution ofExpand
A map of the large day–night temperature gradient of a super-Earth exoplanet
Over the past decade, observations of giant exoplanets (Jupiter-size) have provided key insights into their atmospheres, but the properties of lower-mass exoplanets (sub-Neptune) remain largelyExpand
Atmospheric circulation of tidally locked exoplanets: a suite of benchmark tests for dynamical solvers
The rapid pace of extrasolar planet discovery and characterization is legitimizing the study of their atmospheres via three-dimensional numerical simulations. The complexity of atmospheric modellingExpand
Spatial Structure and Collisionless Electron Heating in Balmer-dominated Shocks
Balmer-dominated shocks in supernova remnants (SNRs) produce strong hydrogen lines with a two-component profile composed of a narrow contribution from cold upstream hydrogen atoms and abroadExpand
The Deep Blue Color of HD 189733b: Albedo Measurements with Hubble Space Telescope/Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph at Visible Wavelengths
We present a secondary eclipse observation for the hot Jupiter HD 189733b across the wavelength range 290-570 nm made using the Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph on the Hubble Space Telescope. WeExpand
The Dependence of Brown Dwarf Radii on Atmospheric Metallicity and Clouds: Theory and Comparison with Observations
Employing realistic and consistent atmosphere boundary conditions, we have generated evolutionary models for brown dwarfs and very low mass stars (VLMs) for different atmospheric metallicitiesExpand
Inference of Inhomogeneous Clouds in an Exoplanet Atmosphere
We present new visible and infrared observations of the hot Jupiter Kepler-7b to determine its atmospheric properties. Our analysis allows us to (1) refine Kepler-7b's relatively large geometricExpand
