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, we present the discovery of three hot Jupiters (P < 10 days) orbiting evolved, intermediate-mass stars (M ⋆ ≈ 1.5 M ⊙, 2 R ⊙ < R ⋆ < 5 R ⊙). By combining TESS photometry with ground-based photometry and radial velocity measurements, we report masses and radii for these three planets of between 0.4… 

Constraining the Planet Occurrence Rate around Halo Stars of Potentially Extragalactic Origin

The search for planets orbiting other stars has recently expanded to include stars from galaxies outside the Milky Way. With the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) and Gaia surveys,

Sonification of TESS Data Validation Timeseries Files

In August 2022, the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satelite (TESS) will start its fifth year of exploration having observed and analyzed more than a million stars in the search of extrasolar planets

K2-97b: A (RE-?)INFLATED PLANET ORBITING A RED GIANT STAR

Strongly irradiated giant planets are observed to have radii larger than thermal evolution models predict. Although these inflated planets have been known for over 15 years, it is unclear whether

While the population of confirmed exoplanets continues to grow, the sample of confirmed transiting planets around evolved stars is still limited. We present the discovery and confirmation of a hot

A Hot Saturn Orbiting an Oscillating Late Subgiant Discovered by TESS

We present the discovery of HD 221416 b, the first transiting planet identified by the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) for which asteroseismology of the host star is possible. HD 221416

Giant Planet Occurrence within 0.2 au of Low-luminosity Red Giant Branch Stars with K2

Every Sun-like star will eventually evolve into a red giant, a transition which can profoundly affect the evolution of a surrounding planetary system. The timescale of dynamical planet evolution and

Seeing Double with K2: Testing Re-inflation with Two Remarkably Similar Planets around Red Giant Branch Stars

Despite more than 20 years since the discovery of the first gas giant planet with an anomalously large radius, the mechanism for planet inflation remains unknown. Here, we report the discovery of

Decaying Orbit of the Hot Jupiter WASP-12b: Confirmation with TESS Observations

Theory suggests that the orbits of some close-in giant planets should decay due to tidal interactions with their host stars. To date, WASP-12b is the only hot Jupiter reported to have a decaying

PLANET OCCURRENCE WITHIN 0.25 AU OF SOLAR-TYPE STARS FROM KEPLER

We report the distribution of planets as a function of planet radius, orbital period, and stellar effective temperature for orbital periods less than 50 days around solar-type (GK) stars. These

The most irradiated transiting hot Jupiters are characterized by anomalously inflated radii, sometimes exceeding Jupiter's size by more than 60%. While different theoretical explanations have been
