Research news

  • Webb gets ready to study rocky worlds 2022-05-26 In a couple of weeks the Webb space telescope will commence its science operations. Among the planned observations for the first year are studies of lava planets, where Alexis Brandeker from the Department of Astronomy leads one of the programmes.
  • KVA webinar: Predatory academic journals and conferences 2022-03-25 The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences (Kungliga vetenskapsakademien, KVA) organises a webinar on predatory academic journals and conferences
  • CHEOPS observes dark-blue giant planet 2022-03-04 The planet around the star HD 209458 was the first discovered to transit its star. This enabled precise measurements of the planet’s mass and size. The planet HD 209458 b, or Osiris as it’s nicknamed, is bigger and lighter than Jupiter, and orbits its star tightly taking 3.5 days for a single revolution. Now the space telescope CHEOPS has measured reflected light from the planet by observing how flux from the star-planet system decreases when the planet passes behind the star.
