Propulsion of Spacecraft to Relativistic Speeds Using Natural Astrophysical Sources
In this paper, we explore from a conceptual standpoint the possibility of using natural astrophysical sources to accelerate spacecrafts to relativistic speeds. We focus on light sails and electric
A Multiwavelength Look at the GJ 9827 System: No Evidence of Extended Atmospheres in GJ 9827b and d from HST and CARMENES Data
GJ 9827 is a bright star hosting a planetary system with three transiting planets. As a multiplanet system with planets that sprawl within the boundaries of the radius gap between terrestrial and
Astrospheres of Planet-Hosting Cool Stars and Beyond ⋅ When Modeling Meets Observations
Thanks to dedicated long-term missions like Voyager and GOES over the past 50 years, much insight has been gained on the activity of our Sun, the solar wind, its interaction with the interstellar
Universal Scaling Laws for Solar and Stellar Atmospheric Heating
The Sun and Sun-like stars commonly host multimillion-kelvin coronae and 10,000 K chromospheres. These extremely hot gases generate X-ray and extreme ultraviolet emissions that may impact the erosion
An M Dwarf’s Chromosphere, Corona, and Wind Connection via Nonlinear Alfvén Waves
An M dwarf’s atmosphere is expected to be highly magnetized. The magnetic energy can be responsible for heating the stellar chromosphere and corona and driving the stellar wind. The nonlinear
Superflares, Chromospheric Activities, and Photometric Variabilities of Solar-type Stars from the Second-year Observation of TESS and Spectra of LAMOST
In this work, 1272 superflares on 311 stars are collected from 22,539 solar-type stars from the second-year observation of the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), which almost covered the
The Dipolar Solar Minimum Corona
The large-scale configuration of the UV solar corona at the minimum activity between solar cycles 22 and 23 is explored in this paper. Exploiting a large sample of spectroscopic observations acquired

Atmospheric Escape Processes and Planetary Atmospheric Evolution
The habitability of the surface of any planet is determined by a complex evolution of its interior, surface, and atmosphere. The electromagnetic and particle radiation of stars drive thermal, chemi...
