Stellar SEDs from 0.3 to 2.5 μm: Tracing the Stellar Locus and Searching for Color Outliers in the SDSS and 2MASS
The Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) and Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS) are rich resources for studying stellar astrophysics and the structure and formation history of the Galaxy. As new surveysExpand
LSST Science Book, Version 2.0
A survey that can cover the sky in optical bands over wide fields to faint magnitudes with a fast cadence will enable many of the exciting science opportunities of the next decade. The Large SynopticExpand
Building the terrestrial planets: Constrained accretion in the inner Solar System
Abstract To date, no accretion model has succeeded in reproducing all observed constraints in the inner Solar System. These constraints include: (1) the orbits, in particular the smallExpand
Deep CCD Surface Photometry of Galaxy Clusters. II. Searching for Intracluster Starlight in Non-cD clusters
We report the search for intracluster light in four Abell type II-III (non-cD) galaxy clusters: A801, A1234, A1553, and A1914. We find that on average these clusters contain ~10% of their detectedExpand
Origin and Evolution of the Cometary Reservoirs
Comets have three known reservoirs: the roughly spherical Oort Cloud (for long-period comets), the flattened Kuiper Belt (for ecliptic comets), and, surprisingly, the asteroid belt (for main-beltExpand
The formation of the Oort cloud in open cluster environments
We study the influence of an open cluster environment on the formation and current structure of the Oort cloud. To do this, we have run 19 different simulations of the formation of the Oort cloud forExpand
Planet Hunters: A Transiting Circumbinary Planet in a Quadruple Star System
We report the discovery and confirmation of a transiting circumbinary planet (PH1b) around KIC 4862625, an eclipsing binary in the Kepler field. The planet was discovered by volunteers searching theExpand
Sedna and the Oort Cloud around a migrating Sun
Abstract Recent numerical simulations have demonstrated that the Sun’s dynamical history within the Milky Way may be much more complex than that suggested by its current low peculiar velocityExpand
The Ultraviolet, Optical, and Infrared Properties of Sloan Digital Sky Survey Sources Detected by GALEX
We discuss the ultraviolet, optical, and infrared properties of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) sources detected by the Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX) as part of its All-sky Imaging SurveyExpand
55 Cancri: A Coplanar Planetary System That is Likely Misaligned with Its Star
Although the 55 Cnc system contains multiple, closely packed planets that are presumably in a coplanar configuration, we use numerical simulations to demonstrate that they are likely to be highlyExpand
