The Ariel Target List: The Impact of TESS and the Potential for Characterizing Multiple Planets within a System
The ESA Ariel mission has been adopted for launch in 2029 and will conduct a survey of around 1000 exoplanetary atmospheres during its primary mission life. By providing homogeneous data sets with a
A diverse planetary trio around a naked-eye star
Observations from the brand-new CHEOPS mission reveal a third long-period transiting planet around the naked-eye star ν2 Lupi. Precise measurements of the masses and radii of planets around this star
Hidden Water in Magma Ocean Exoplanets
We demonstrate that the deep volatile storage capacity of magma oceans has significant implications for the bulk composition, interior, and climate state inferred from exoplanet mass and radius data.


A giant comet-like cloud of hydrogen escaping the warm Neptune-mass exoplanet GJ 436b
In the ultraviolet the Neptune-mass exoplanet GJ 436b (also known as Gliese 436b) has transit depths of 56.3 ± 3.5% (1σ), far beyond the 0.69% optical transit depth, and it is inferred that the planet is surrounded and trailed by a large exospheric cloud composed mainly of hydrogen atoms.
A sub-Neptune exoplanet with a low-metallicity methane-depleted atmosphere and Mie-scattering clouds
With no analogues in the Solar System, the discovery of thousands of exoplanets with masses and radii intermediate between Earth and Neptune was one of the big surprises of exoplanet science. These
Ground-based detection of an extended helium atmosphere in the Saturn-mass exoplanet WASP-69b
Ground-based high-resolution spectroscopy detected excess absorption in the helium triplet during the transit of the Saturn-mass exoplanet WASP-69b, which is interpreted as the escape of part of the atmosphere trailing behind the planet in comet-like form.
Hubble PanCET: an extended upper atmosphere of neutral hydrogen around the warm Neptune GJ 3470b
GJ 3470b is a warm Neptune transiting an M-dwarf star at the edge of the evaporation desert. It offers the possibility of investigating how low-mass, close-in exoplanets evolve under the irradiation
The Kepler-11 system: evolution of the stellar high-energy emission and initial planetary atmospheric mass fractions
The atmospheres of close-in planets are strongly influenced by mass loss driven by the high-energy (X-ray and extreme ultraviolet, EUV) irradiation of the host star, particularly during the early
The Derivation, Properties and Value of Kepler's Combined Differential Photometric Precision
The Kepler Mission is searching for Earth-size planets orbiting solar-like stars by simultaneously observing >160,000 stars to detect sequences of transit events in the photometric light curves. The
Characterization of the L 98-59 multiplanetary system with HARPS. Mass characterization of a hot super-Earth, a sub-Neptune, and a mass upper limit on the third planet
Aims. L 98-59 (TIC 307210830, TOI-175) is a nearby M3 dwarf around which TESS revealed three small transiting planets (0.80, 1.35, 1.57 Earth radii) in a compact configuration with orbital periods
juliet: a versatile modelling tool for transiting and non-transiting exoplanetary systems
Here we present juliet, a versatile tool for the analysis of transits, radial velocities, or both. juliet is built over many available tools for the modelling of transits, radial velocities, and
The stellar activity-rotation relationship revisited: Dependence of saturated and non-saturated X-ray emission regimes on stellar mass for late-type dwarfs ?
We present the results of a new study on the relationship between coronal X-ray emission and stellar rotation in late-type main-sequence stars. We have selected a sample of 259 dwarfs in the B V
Age consistency between exoplanet hosts and field stars
Transiting planets around stars are discovered mostly through photometric surveys. Unlike radial velocity surveys, photometric surveys do not tend to target slow rotators, inactive or metal-rich
