Slowing Down and Updating the Site

Too many projects on my plate at the moment that I can’t keep up with posting the latest, cool exoplanet info. I do plan on updating the site with some better functionality in the next few months in summer of 2014, while preserving the same look. Just better organized links and navigation on pages with a lot of information. The collection of resources is one the highlights of this site, as I intended it to be of use to students, educators, and armchair scientists and astronomers, so I’d like to get that in shape. Until then, cheers!

Tug, Tug, Tug, Tug. Hi! I’m KOI-872c!

New exoplanet found using the using the highly scientific tug method.

Astronomers using the Kepler Space Telescope have observed the gravitational tugging of one previously hidden planet on another known planet orbiting the sun-like star KOI-872. This technique led to Neptune’s discovery in the year 1846, via its gravitational influence on Uranus. This is the first time the technique has been successfully used to identify a planet outside our solar system. The paper describing these results was published in the journal Science on May 10, 2012.
