The award-winning CubeSat is the first to recognize an exoplanet

In the light of the constellation Cancer is 41 light-years away, 55 Cancri e is 7.8 times the mass of the earth and orbits every 17.7 hours its sun-like star, which means that its surface temperature a balsamic 2.709 K (2.436 ° C; 4.417 ° F) – hot enough to melt iron easily. To detect the planet, ASTERIA had to …

Exoplanet Detectives create catalog of & # 39; light fingerprints & # 39;

By Linda B. Glaser Earthbound detectives rely on fingerprints to solve their cases; Now astronomers can do the same by using "light fingerprints" instead of skin grooves to reveal the secrets of exoplanets. Cornell researchers have created a reference catalog of calibrated spectra and geometric albedos (light reflected from a surface) of 19 of the most diverse bodies of our …
