Catalog of nearby exoplanets
We present a catalog of nearby exoplanets. It contains the 172 known low-mass companions with orbits established through radial velocity and transit measurements around stars within 200 pc. WeExpand
The Keck Planet Search: Detectability and the Minimum Mass and Orbital Period Distribution of Extrasolar Planets
ABSTRACT. We analyze 8 years of precise radial velocity measurements from the Keck Planet Search, characterizing the detection threshold, selection effects, and completeness of the survey. We firstExpand
A terrestrial planet candidate in a temperate orbit around Proxima Centauri
Observations reveal the presence of a small planet with a minimum mass of about 1.3 Earth masses orbiting Proxima with a period of approximately 11.2 days at a semi-major-axis distance of around 0.05 astronomical units. Expand
Chromospheric Ca II Emission in Nearby F, G, K, and M Stars*
We present chromospheric Ca II H and K activity measurements, rotation periods, and ages for ~1200 F, G, K, and M type main-sequence stars from ~18,000 archival spectra taken at Keck and LickExpand
Radial Velocities for 889 Late-Type Stars*
We report radial velocities for 844 FGKM-type main-sequence and subgiant stars and 45 K giants, most of which had either low-precision velocity measurements or none at all. These velocities differExpand
Three New “51 Pegasi-Type” Planets*
We report Keplerian Doppler velocity variations, consistent with orbiting "51 Pegasi-type" planets, for the three stars HR 3522 (G8V), HR 5185 (F7V), and HR 458 (F8V). HR 3522 exhibits a velocityExpand
A ~7.5 M⊕ Planet Orbiting the Nearby Star, GJ 876*
High-precision, high-cadence radial velocity monitoring over the past 8 yr at the W. M. Keck Observatory reveals evidence for a third planet orbiting the nearby (4.69 pc) dM4 star GJ 876. TheExpand
Planets Orbiting Other Suns
ABSTRACT After a century fraught with false claims, evidence for planets around other stars finally appears robust. Infrared imaging and spectroscopy of disks around stars foreshadow detailed modelsExpand
Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS)
The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS ) will search for planets transiting bright and nearby stars. TESS has been selected by NASA for launch in 2017 as an Astrophysics Explorer mission.Expand
A New Planet around an M Dwarf: Revealing a Correlation between Exoplanets and Stellar Mass
We report precise Doppler measurements of GJ 317 (M3.5 V) that reveal the presence of a planet with a minimum mass M_P sin i = 1.2 M_(Jup) in an eccentric, 692.9 day orbit. GJ 317 is only the third MExpand
