Exocast-45d – Exoplanet News: new discoveries, characterisations, and formation research

On Exocast-45d we bring you the news from across exoplanet research this month with new discoveries, characterisations, habitability and formation papers. In America, WFIRST has been renamed the Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope in honour to the pioneering “Mother Hubble”, while in Europe the LIFE mission kicked off. We have lots of new exoplanets being discovered (from TESS, NGTS, WASP and RVs), and un-discovered, as was the case for Fomalhaut b. Characterisation studies have also

Exocast-44 d – April 2020’s exoplanet news

In this round-up of the month’s notable exoplanetary exploits, we cover all the headlines including: Proxima c (not) being directly imaged with Sphere – WASP-4b’s accelerating orbit – two new but very different sub-Saturn-mass planets – windspeed measurements on Brown Dwarfs – plus the influence of Gin & Vampires on exoplanets (from a couple of results very early this month). Also this month, check out our chat with Dr Sarah Casewell; and a discussion of

Exocast-42 d – Exoplanet news

In the first of three mini-casts this month, we discuss all the recent exoplanet news from December 2019 & January 2020. That includes a temperate world around TOI-700d; Proxima Centauri c; three new planetary systems losing their atmospheres found with RVs; Circumbinary planets in Kepler and TESS; Iron in WASP-121b; Two different phase curves from TESS; and the atmosphere of Beta Pic b in glorious detail. http://media.blubrry.com/exocast/p/www.exocast.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/Exocast_42_d_news_jan2020_v2.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadSubscribe: Android |

Exocast-25b: Exoplanetary Helium (with guest Jess Spake), plus the “Shadow Biosphere”

In the 25th episode of Exocast: Jessica Spake joins us to chat about the first detection of exoplanetary Helium – around the planet Wasp-107b Andrew covers whether alien biology could exist in a Shadow Biosphere here on Earth. Hannah covers all of May’s exoplanet news; And Jess invites an old friend to the exocast adopted planets – 51 Pegasi b, the first exoplanet detected around a sun-like star. http://media.blubrry.com/exocast/p/www.exocast.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/exocast-25b_edit1.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadSubscribe:

Exocast-13b

In the 13th episode of Exocast Hugh talks about planets in binary systems – are two stars better than one? Hannah discussed the importance of brown dwarfs as the intermediary between planets and stars. Andrew takes us through the latest in exoplanetary news, including the newest discoveries, investigations, and notable events in exoplanets this month. and Hannah adopts WASP-12b with it’s ruby clouds into our extreme family of exoplanets. http://media.blubrry.com/exocast/p/www.exocast.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/Exocast-13b_v1.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadSubscribe:
