We present the first near all-sky yield of oscillating red giants from the prime mission data of NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS). We apply machine learning toward long-cadence TESS photometry from the first data release by the MIT Quick-look Pipeline to automatically detect the presence of red giant oscillations in frequency power spectra. The detected targets are conservatively vetted to produce a total of 158,505 oscillating red giants, which is an order of magnitude… 

HD-TESS: An Asteroseismic Catalog of Bright Red Giants within TESS Continuous Viewing Zones

We present HD-TESS, a catalog of 1709 bright (V ∼ 3–10) red giants from the Henry Draper (HD) Catalog with asteroseismic measurements based on photometry from NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey

Context. The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) mission has provided photometric light curves for stars across nearly the entire sky. This allows for the application of asteroseismology to

TESS Giants Transiting Giants. II. The Hottest Jupiters Orbiting Evolved Stars

Giant planets on short-period orbits are predicted to be inflated and eventually engulfed by their host stars. However, the detailed timescales and stages of these processes are not well known. Here,

Mixed-mode Asteroseismology of Red Giant Stars Through the Luminosity Bump

Most current models of low-mass red giant stars do not reproduce the observed position of the red giant branch luminosity bump, a diagnostic of the maximum extent of the convective envelope during

The NASA Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (NASA-TESS) mission presents a treasure trove for understanding the stars it observes and the Milky Way, in which they reside. We present a first look

Measuring the vertical age structure of the Galactic disc using asteroseismology and SAGA

The existence of a vertical age gradient in the Milky Way disc has been indirectly known for long. Here, we measure it directly for the first time with seismic ages, using red giants observed by
