Steps to identifying a planet

There are are many steps involved with identifying a planet. This mini series covers some of these steps!

How can we detect exoplanets using transit time variations?

This week, we're learning about another method used to detect exoplanets, called transit time variations (TTVs).

What is Box Least Squares (BLS) analysis and how is it used to find exoplanets?

Today we're recapping something from our very first episode - detecting transit-like events using an algorithm. Except this time we're going to try it for ourselves!

7 steps to identify a good exoplanet candidate

In today's episode, Kassie and Nora are going to go through the seven steps it takes to find a good exoplanet candidate. If you've watched our other videos these should be familiar to you, but this is the first time we're going through them in order, from start to finish.

 

How is radial velocity (RV) used to discover exoplanets?

Planet Hunters Coffee Chat is back after a short break! In this episode we discuss how we can determine the mass of a planet using radial velocity observations!
