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
Kepler-22b: a 2.4 Earth-radius Planet in the Habitable Zone of a Sun-like Star
A search of the time-series photometry from NASA's Kepler spacecraft reveals a transiting planet candidate orbiting the 11th magnitude G5 dwarf KIC 10593626 with a period of 290 days. TheExpand
In situ evidence for continental crust on early Mars
Understanding of the geologic evolution of Mars has been greatly improved by recent orbital(1-3), in situ(4,5) and meteorite(6-8) data, but insights into the earliest period of Martian magmatism (4.1Expand
Classification of igneous rocks analyzed by ChemCam at Gale crater, Mars
Abstract Several recent studies have revealed that Mars is not a simple basalt-covered planet, but has a more complex geological history. In Gale crater on Mars, the Curiosity rover discovered 59Expand
Diagenetic silica enrichment and late‐stage groundwater activity in Gale crater, Mars
Diagenetic silica enrichment in fracture-associated halos that crosscut lacustrine and unconformably overlying aeolian sedimentary bedrock is observed on the lower north slope of Aeolis Mons in GaleExpand
Chemistry of diagenetic features analyzed by ChemCam at Pahrump Hills, Gale crater, Mars
The Curiosity rover's campaign at Pahrump Hills provides the first analyses of lower Mount Sharp strata. Here we report ChemCam elemental composition of a diverse assemblage of post-depositionalExpand
Martian Aeolian Activity at the Bagnold Dunes, Gale Crater: The View from the Surface and Orbit
The first in situ investigation of an active dune field on another planetary surface occurred in 2015-2016 when the MSL Curiosity rover investigated the Bagnold Dunes on Mars. HIRISE images showExpand
An interval of high salinity in ancient Gale crater lake on Mars
Precipitated minerals, including salts, are primary tracers of atmospheric conditions and water chemistry in lake basins. Ongoing in situ exploration by the Curiosity rover of Hesperian (aroundExpand
Chemical alteration of fine-grained sedimentary rocks at Gale crater
Abstract From Sol 750 to 1550, the Curiosity rover documented>100 m thick stack of fine-grained sedimentary rocks making up part of the Murray formation, at the base of Mt Sharp, Gale crater. Here,Expand
Hydration state of calcium sulfates in Gale crater, Mars: Identification of bassanite veins
Abstract In-situ analyses reveal the presence of hydrogen within calcium sulfate veins crosscutting the sediments found in Gale crater. Laboratory experiments were performed to calibrate the hydrogenExpand
