Clouds in the atmosphere of the super-Earth exoplanet GJ 1214b
TLDR
A measurement of the transmission spectrum of GJ 1214b at near-infrared wavelengths is reported, sufficiently precise to detect absorption features from a high mean-molecular-mass atmosphere and rule out cloud-free atmospheric models with compositions dominated by water, methane, carbon monoxide, nitrogen or carbon dioxide.

The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite: Simulations of planet detections and astrophysical false positives
The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) is a NASA-sponsored Explorer mission that will perform a wide-field survey for planets that transit bright host stars. Here, we predict the propertiesExpand
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
The rotation and Galactic kinematics of mid M dwarfs in the Solar Neighborhood
Rotation is a directly-observable stellar property, and drives magnetic field generation and activity through a magnetic dynamo. Main sequence stars with masses below approximately 0.35MsunExpand

Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite
Abstract. 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 ExplorerExpand
A temperate rocky super-Earth transiting a nearby cool star
TLDR
Observations of LHS 1140b, a planet with a radius of 1.4 Earth radii transiting a small, cool star (L HS 1140) 12 parsecs away, measure the mass of the planet to be 6.6 times that of Earth, consistent with a rocky bulk composition, and place an upper limit on the orbital eccentricity. Expand
A rocky planet transiting a nearby low-mass star
M-dwarf stars—hydrogen-burning stars that are smaller than 60 per cent of the size of the Sun—are the most common class of star in our Galaxy and outnumber Sun-like stars by a ratio of 12:1. RecentExpand
The Impact of Stellar Rotation on the Detectability of Habitable Planets Around M Dwarfs
Stellar activity and rotation frustrate the detection of exoplanets through the radial velocity technique. This effect is particularly of concern for M dwarfs, which can remain magnetically activeExpand
PREDICTIONS OF THE ATMOSPHERIC COMPOSITION OF GJ 1132b
GJ 1132 b is a nearby Earth-sized exoplanet transiting an M dwarf, and is amongst the most highly characterizable small exoplanets currently known. In this paper we study the interaction of a magmaExpand
