Meet Kassie and Nora in these introductory videos on Planet Hunters Coffee Chat!
A series of videos on how to make use of existing resources including SIMBAD, ExoFOP and MAST. Watch these to learn more about these resources and how to best use them to find out information on stars and planets.
Get started with using code to look at TESS data! Nora walks you through how to use existing code so that you can interact with data, and derive exoplanet properties yourself!
We often want to find out more about the planets that we're looking at! These videos will help you determine properties including the the size of the planet!
Many 'transit-like' signals end up being false positives (it looks like a planet signal but isn't!). It's important to rule these out. Watch these videos to find out how you can do this yourself to help you find the best planet candidates!
Not all stars host transiting planets but many of these stars are fascinating in their own right! These videos look at the light curves of some of these interesting stars and discuss the science behind them.
Citizen scientists taking part in the Planet Hunters TESS project helped find a unique triple star system which was published at the start of 2022. This mini-series discusses this system from start to finish! Find out how you can carry out analysis like these!
There are many steps involved with discovering a good exoplanet candidate! These videos go over the main steps!
Some of our episodes have been translated into Spanish! Watch these episodes with spanish subtitles.
