Astronomers using data from NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) have discovered two exoplanets transiting inactive red dwarf stars TOI-122 and TOI-237.
Largest ever sample of super flares
Using NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) and two ground-based instruments, astronomers have discovered and confirmed a transiting hot Neptune exoplanet orbiting TOI-824, a K4-type dwarf star located 210 light-years away in the constellation of Circinus.
On July 4, NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) finished its primary mission, imaging about 75% of the starry sky as part of a two-year-long survey.
66 confirmed exoplanets, 2,100 candidates and the search goes on.
World was spotted by Nasa telescopes – but then disappeared, until now
Astronomers using NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) have discovered a planetary system of two giant planets — a Neptune-sized planet and a hot Jupiter — orbiting the 8.2-billion-year-old star TOI-1130.
TOI 700 d is a landmark discovery for NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite.
Using data from NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), astronomers at the University of Maryland (UMD), in College Park, Maryland, have captured a clear start-to-finish image sequence of an explosive emission of dust, ice and gases during the close approach of comet 46P/Wirtanen in late 2018. This is the most complete and detailed observation to date of the formation and dissipation of a naturally-occurring comet outburst. The team members reported their results in the November 22 issue of The Astrophysical Journal Letters.
Apart from the asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs 65 million years ago, there aren’t many connections between space and dinosaurs outside of the imagination. But that all changed when NASA research scientist Jessie Christiansen brought the two together in an animation on social media this month.
