Abstract. The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) will search for planets transiting bright and nearby stars. TESS has been selected by NASA for launch in 2017 as an Astrophysics Explorer mission. The spacecraft will be placed into a highly elliptical 13.7-day orbit around the Earth. During its 2-year mission, TESS will employ four wide-field optical charge-coupled device cameras to monitor at least 200,000 main-sequence dwarf stars with IC≈4−13 for temporary drops in brightness caused… Expand

The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite: Simulations of planet detections and astrophysical false positives
The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) is a NASA-sponsored Explorer mission that will perform a wide-field survey for planets that transit bright host stars. Here, we predict the propertiesExpand
An input catalog and target selection for the transiting exoplanet survey satellite
TLDR
A preliminary Candidate Target List is created using a ranking system for all stars in the sky, according to the smallest transiting planet detectable, using the TESS Input Catalog as a guide. Expand
A Revised Exoplanet Yield from the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite ( TESS )
The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) has a goal of detecting small planets orbiting stars bright enough for mass determination via ground-based radial velocity observations. Here weExpand
Exoplanet transits with next-generation radio telescopes
Nearly everything we know about extrasolar planets to date comes from optical astronomy. While exoplanetary aurorae are predicted to be bright at low radio frequencies (< 1 GHz), we consider theExpand
Detecting Unresolved Binaries in TESS Data with Speckle Imaging
The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) is conducting a two-year wide-field survey searching for transiting exoplanets around nearby bright stars that will be ideal for follow-upExpand
Planet Detection Simulations for Several Possible TESS Extended Missions
TLDR
There is no sharp fall-off in the planet discovery rate in the third year of TESS operations, and the quantity of newly detected sub-Neptune radius planets does not depend strongly on the schedule of pointings. Expand
Long-period exoplanets from photometric transit surveys
TLDR
The Bayesian transit-fitting tool ("Namaste: An MCMC Analysis of Single Transit Exoplanets") was developed to extract planetary and orbital information from single transits, and was applied to 71 candidate events detected in K2 photometry, which helped to characterise large numbers of long period planets in this way.

Which stars can see Earth as a transiting exoplanet?
Transit observations have found the majority of exoplanets to date. Spectroscopic observations of transits and eclipses are the most commonly used tool to characterize exoplanet atmospheres and willExpand

A super-Earth transiting a nearby low-mass star
TLDR
Observations of the transiting planet GJ’1214b are reported, finding that the planetary mass and radius are consistent with a composition of primarily water enshrouded by a hydrogen–helium envelope that is only 0.05% of the mass of the planet. Expand
