A long-period substellar object exhibiting a single transit in Kepler

Kavli Affiliate: Saul Rappaport | First 5 Authors: Samuel N. Quinn, Saul Rappaport, Andrew Vanderburg, Jason D. Eastman, Lorne A. Nelson | Summary: We report the detection of a single transit-like signal in the Kepler data of the slightly evolved F star KIC4918810. The transit duration is ~45 hours, and while the orbital period ($Psim10$ […]

Evidence of Accretion Burst: The Viscously Heated Inner Disk of the Embedded Protostar IRAS 16316-1540

Kavli Affiliate: Gregory J. Herczeg | First 5 Authors: Sung-Yong Yoon, Jeong-Eun Lee, Seokho Lee, Gregory J. Herczeg, Sunkyung Park | Summary: Outbursts of young stellar objects occur when the mass accretion rate suddenly increases. However, such outbursts are difficult to detect for deeply embedded protostars due to their thick envelope and the rarity of […]

Simulations of systematic effects arising from cosmic rays in the LiteBIRD space telescope, and effects on the measurements of CMB $B$-modes

Kavli Affiliate: Tomotake Matsumura | First 5 Authors: Samantha Lynn Stever, Tommaso Ghigna, Mayu Tominaga, Giuseppe Puglisi, Masahiro Tsujimoto | Summary: Systematic effects arising from cosmic rays have been shown to be a significant threat to space telescopes using high-sensitivity bolometers. The LiteBIRD space mission aims to measure the polarised Cosmic Microwave Background with unprecedented […]

Measurements of the Hubble Constant: Tensions in Perspective

Kavli Affiliate: Wendy L. Freedman | First 5 Authors: Wendy L. Freedman, , , , | Summary: Measurement of the distances to nearby galaxies have improved rapidly in recent decades. The ever-present challenge is to reduce systematic effects, especially as greater distances are probed, and the uncertainties become larger. In this paper, we combine several […]
