Context. The properties, distribution, and evolution of inhomogeneities on the surface of active stars, such as dark spots and bright faculae, significantly influence the determination of the parameters of an orbiting exoplanet. The chromatic effect they have on transmission spectroscopy, for example, could affect the analysis of data from future space missions such as James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) and Ariel. Aims. To quantify and mitigate the effects of those surface phenomena, we… 
The Pandora SmallSat: Multiwavelength Characterization of Exoplanets and their Host Stars
Pandora is a SmallSat mission designed to study the atmospheres of exoplanets, and was selected as part of NASA’s Astrophysics Pioneers Program. Transmission spectroscopy of transiting exoplanets
Stellar activity and transits
From an observational standpoint, stellar activity poses a critical challenge to exoplanet science, as it inhibits the detection of planets and the precise measurement of their parameters. Radial
