In this session of Noites no Observatório, we will cover some of the most successful methods used by astronomers to detect and characterise planets outside our Solar System.
A team of researchers from Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço (IA) was part of a study which detected and characterized the atmosphere of exoplanet WASP-76b, a study only made possible thanks to the ESPRESSO spectrograph. Ler mais
A team from Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço (IA) found evidence which suggests this type of exoplanet, apparently with very low densities, might be similar to Uranus, with rings more than 2.5 times the size of the planet. Ler mais
This first science image from CHEOPS, which had the participation of Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço researchers, was intentionally blurry to maximize the precision of CHEOPS’ measurements. Ler mais
