Citizen science means using a large number of trained volunteers to acquire vast amounts of data in a short time. How could this work with exoplanet research?
Observations of dozens of stars revealed a similar pattern: most star systems show rings and gaps, which are interpreted as signs for planet formation
Could Venus’ present climate have been the result of Jupiter’s dramatic migration early in the solar system’s history?
It is very difficult to confidently identify chemical substances in an exoplanet’s atmosphere. Perhaps it is more efficient and accurate to look at the characteristics of the light itself.
