Exoplanets orbiting pre-main-sequence stars are laboratories for studying planet evolution processes, including atmospheric loss, orbital migration, and radiative cooling. V1298 Tau, a young solar analog with an age of 23 ± 4 Myr, is one such laboratory. The star is already known to host a Jupiter-sized planet on a 24 day orbit. Here, we report the discovery of three additional planets—all between the sizes of Neptune and Saturn—based on our analysis of K2 Campaign 4 photometry. Planets c and d… 
New Constraints on the Future Evaporation of the Young Exoplanets in the V1298 Tau System
Transiting planets at young ages are key targets for improving our understanding of the evolution of exo-atmospheres. We present results of a new X-ray observation of V 1298 Tau with XMM-Newton,
Rapid contraction of giant planets orbiting the 20-million-year-old star V1298 Tau
Current theories of planetary evolution predict that infant giant planets have large radii and very low densities before they slowly contract to reach their final size after about several hundred
TESS Hunt for Young and Maturing Exoplanets (THYME). III. A Two-planet System in the 400 Myr Ursa Major Group
Exoplanets can evolve significantly between birth and maturity, as their atmospheres, orbits, and structures are shaped by their environment. Young planets (<1 Gyr) offer an opportunity to probe the
A Search for Planetary Metastable Helium Absorption in the V1298 Tau System
Early in their lives, planets endure extreme amounts of ionizing radiation from their host stars. For planets with primordial hydrogen and helium-rich envelopes, this can lead to substantial mass
The Young Planet DS Tuc Ab Has a Low Obliquity
The abundance of short-period planetary systems with high orbital obliquities relative to the spin of their host stars is often taken as evidence that scattering processes play important roles in the
A 38 Million Year Old Neptune-sized Planet in the Kepler Field
Kepler 1627A is a G8V star previously known to host a 3.8 R ⊕ planet on a 7.2 day orbit. The star was observed by the Kepler space telescope because it is nearby (d = 329 pc) and it resembles the
An Aligned Orbit for the Young Planet V1298 Tau b
The alignment of planetary orbits with respect to the stellar rotation preserves information on their dynamical histories. Measuring this angle for young planets helps illuminate the mechanisms that
H-α Variability of V1298 Tau c
The 23 Myr system V1298 Tau hosts four transiting planets and is a valuable laboratory for exploring the early stages of planet evolution soon after formation of the star. We observe the innermost
The Obliquity of HIP 67522 b: A 17 Myr Old Transiting Hot, Jupiter-sized Planet
HIP 67522 b is a 17 Myr old, close-in (P orb = 6.96 days), Jupiter-sized (R = 10 R ⊕) transiting planet orbiting a Sun-like star in the Sco–Cen OB association. We present our measurement of the
X-ray irradiation and evaporation of the four young planets around V1298 Tau
Planets around young stars are thought to undergo atmospheric evaporation due to the high magnetic activity of the host stars. Here we report on X-ray observations of V1298 Tau, a young star with

TLDR
