Liquid water on Enceladus from observations of ammonia and 40 Ar in the plume
Since Cassini spacecraft images revealed plumes of water vapour and ice particles erupting from Saturn's moon Enceladus in 2006, the search for the water source has been on. Possibilities includeExpand

THE CANADA-FRANCE ECLIPTIC PLANE SURVEY—FULL DATA RELEASE: THE ORBITAL STRUCTURE OF THE KUIPER BELT*
We report the orbital distribution of the trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs) discovered during the Canada–France Ecliptic Plane Survey (CFEPS), whose discovery phase ran from early 2003 until early 2007.Expand

AN ESTIMATE OF THE CHEMICAL COMPOSITION OF TITAN's LAKES
Hundreds of radar-dark patches interpreted as lakes have been discovered in the north and south polar regions of Titan. We have estimated the composition of these lakes by using the direct abundanceExpand

Erratum: Enrichments in Volatiles in Jupiter: A New Interpretation of the Galileo Measurements
Using an evolutionary model of the solar nebula, we fit all enrichments in volatiles with respect to the solar abundance measured in Jupiter by the Galileo probe. We argue that volatiles were trappedExpand

Prebiotic chemicals—amino acid and phosphorus—in the coma of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko
The detection of glycine and phosphorus in the coma of 67P shows that comets contain all ingredients to help spark life on Earth. The importance of comets for the origin of life on Earth has beenExpand

A POSSIBLE CARBON-RICH INTERIOR IN SUPER-EARTH 55 Cancri e
Terrestrial planets in the solar system, such as the Earth, are oxygen-rich, with silicates and iron being the most common minerals in their interiors. However, the true chemical diversity of rockyExpand

Carbon-rich Giant Planets: Atmospheric Chemistry, Thermal Inversions, Spectra, and Formation Conditions
The recent inference of a carbon-rich atmosphere, with C/O ≥ 1, in the hot Jupiter WASP-12b motivates the exotic new class of carbon-rich planets (CRPs). We report a detailed study of the atmosphericExpand

Interplanetary Dust Particles as Samples of Icy Asteroids
Meteorites have long been considered as reflections of the compositional diversity of main belt asteroids and consequently they have been used to decipher their origin, formation, and evolution.Expand

Methane in the Atmosphere of the Transiting Hot Neptune GJ436B
We present an analysis of seven primary transit observations of the hot Neptune GJ436b at 3.6, 4.5, and 8 μm obtained with the Infrared Array Camera on the Spitzer Space Telescope. After correctingExpand
