Exoplanets through extreme optics: from PLATO to SHARK-NIR

 Cache   
Title: Exoplanets through extreme optics: from PLATO to SHARK-NIR Abstract: L’Osservatorio di Padova (Istituto Nazionale di Astrofisica) e l’Università di Padova negli ultimi anni sono stati coinvolti massicciamente in progetti dedicati alla ricerca di pianeti extrasolari, sia con strumenti e telescopi da terra che dallo spazio. SHARK-NIR, che sta per “System for coronagraphy with High order Adaptive optics from R to K band – Near-Infrared”, è uno strumento disegnato per cercare e caratterizzare sistemi solari giovani e regioni di formazione stellare nel dominio di lunghezze d’onda del vicino infrarosso. La tecnica devota all’osservazione è quella spettroscopica e dell’immagine diretta. Questo strumento ottico è stato selezionato per la seconda generazione di dispositivi per il Large Binocular Telescope (LBT), con il vantaggio di sfruttare le eccellenti prestazioni del sistema di ottica adattiva di LBT. La correzione di ottica attiva estrema di LBT (XAO), è il requisito necessario di SHARK-NIR per ottenere la migliore cronografia attualmente disponibile con LBT ed è obbligatoria quando l’obiettivo è studiare pianeti poco luminosi che orbitano attorno a stelle brillanti. CHEOPS, che sta per “CHaracterising ExOPlanet Satellite”, è la prima missione spaziale dedicata alla caratterizzazione di piccoli pianeti già noti attorno a stelle brillanti tramite fotometria ad altissima precisione. Si otterranno accurate misure del raggio dei pianeti per i quali la massa è già nota da campagne spettroscopiche con telescopi da terra. Inoltre si conosceranno con precisione i raggi dei nuovi pianeti scoperti dalle campagne di osservazione da terra di nuova generazione basate sulla tecnica dei transiti, fino a pianeti di dimensioni di Nettuno o inferiori. PLATO, che sta per “PLAnetary Transits and Oscillations of stars”, è una missione proposta per il programma di nuovi satelliti di medie dimensioni “Cosmic Vision” dell’Agenzia Spaziale Europea. Il telescopio è focalizzato alla ricerca e caratterizzazione di eso-pianeti attorno a stelle brillanti e vicine al nostro Sole. Il progetto proposto dal consorzio PLATO consiste in un telescopio multiplo, composto da decine di telescopi singoli uguali, per i quali si è sviluppata una soluzione ottica totalmente rifrattiva. Ogni singolo telescopio ha un grande campo di vista (fino a 20 gradi) e una qualità ottica tale da concentrare la maggior parte dell’energia raccolta in un singolo elemento del sensore di immagini. Un tale scopo è raggiungibile applicando una molteplicità di soluzioni, tra cui anche l’uso di elementi ottici asferici. In questa tesi descriverò le attività svolte sia nell’ambito di un progetto spaziale che di uno strumento per telescopio a terra. Il progetto PLATO è stato trattato nell’ambito dell’integrazione, assemblaggio e verifica (AIV) del prototipo della singola unità ottica del telescopio, allo scopo di validare la procedura completa di AIV e le prestazioni in condizioni di volo. Riguardo lo strumento SHARK-NIR si spiegheranno le attività svolte per l’allineamento ottico e la qualificazione finale.

NASA’s Exoplanet Hunter Has Discovered an Earth-sized Alien World

Tuesday, November 26, 2019 byEdsel Cook

Tags: Alien worldBreakthroughCosmicDiscoveriesExoplanetsGood scienceHabitable planetsKepler space telescopeNASAPlanetsSpaceSpace researchStars

(Natural News) The TESS space telescope has taken its first step in catching up to the massive achievements of its predecessor, Kepler. The NASA-operated spacecraft has recently found its first Earth-sized exoplanet.

The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) has spotted a planet circling the dwarf star called HD 21749, which is 53 light-years away from Earth. This world, dubbed HD 21749b, is gaseous but not a gas giant like Jupiter or even Neptune. Experts classified it as a sub-Neptune.

“It’s so exciting that TESS, which launched just about a year ago, is already a game-changer in the planet-hunting business,” explained Carnegie Institution for Science(Carnegie) researcher Johanna Teske. She served as the co-author of the study on the new discoveries.

TESS examines some of the brightest and nearest stars on the off chance that they have planets orbiting them. It looks for transits, the small drops in luminosity when an exoplanet passes between its parent star and the space telescope.

Kepler also relied on the transit method to spot alien worlds. The retired space observatory proved very successful, accounting for 70 percent of the 4,000 exoplanets known currently. NASA predicts that TESS will outperform its predecessor. (Related: Has the second “alien megastructure” been found?)

New space telescope finds its first Earth-sized rocky planet

The best outcome is for TESS to find potentially habitable worlds in star systems that are in the range of other instruments. For example, the future James Webb space telescope will scan the atmospheres of planets in search of gases produced by living organisms.

TESS also discovered a “sibling” of the newly discovered Earth-sized planet – a smaller rocky world called HD 21749c. Sadly, it does not appear to be hospitable. With an orbital period of less than eight Earth days, HD 21749c is too close for comfort to its parent star.

Further, the star HD 21749 measures around 80 percent of the size of the sun. As a result, its planet is likely scorching hot.

The Carnegie-led research team calculated the size of HD 21749c by examining the transit data from TESS. They looked at the percentage of the stellar disk that the exoplanet obscured.

Mass is another thing entirely. The researchers took data from ground-based spectrographs that measured the gravitational pull of the other exoplanet, HD 21749b, on its parent star.

Using the other method, they succeeded in determining the mass of the second alien world. HD 21749b weighed the equivalent of 23 Earths.

Further, the transit data from TESS suggested that the second exoplanet measured 2.7 times wider than Earth. The researchers surmised that HD 21749b is gaseous compared to its rocky sibling HD 21749c, but it is also far smaller than Uranus and Neptune in the solar system.

TESS will find more exoplanets that may possibly support Earth-like life

Of the planets found by TESS, HD 21749b takes the most time to complete one orbit around its parent star. Its orbital period is 36 Earth days.

When they announced their discovery of HD 21749b in early 2019, Carnegie researchers estimated its surface temperature at 300 F (150 C). They also brought up the possibility of another exoplanet, which turned out to be HD 21749c. The mass of the Earth-sized rocky planet remains unknown. They need more accurate data for their calculations.

“Measuring the exact mass and composition of such a small planet will be challenging, but important for comparing HD 21749c to Earth,” explained Carnegie researcher Sharon Wang, who co-wrote the study alongside Teske. “Carnegie’s PFS team is continuing to collect data on this object with this goal in mind.”

While HD 21749c appears unsuited to host organic life like those on Earth, the research team believes that TESS will eventually turn up more candidates for life-bearing worlds.

Episode 594: Building Space Telescopes... In Space

 Cache   
When it comes to telescopes, bigger is better. That’s true down here on Earth, and it’s especially true out in space. As astronomers and engineers design the next generation of giant space telescopes, they’re running up against the limits of current launch providers. There are only so many ways you can fold a huge telescope to get it to fit inside a 5-meter launch fairing. The upcoming James Webb Space Telescope is pretty much the very limit of what you can construct on Earth and put into space in a single launch. To go bigger, space agencies will need to consider assembling their next-generation space telescopes… in space.

Comment on Axial Tilt, Habitability, and Centauri B by Mike Serfas

 Cache   
This was indeed a fascinating and impressive claim, if it can really be done. But it mostly just makes me wonder: is there any hope or plan for resolving very small angular features using very small actual _angles_? Suppose we had one of those orbital tethers like you imagine having in orbit to grab a SpaceShip One at the high point of its trip and let it go on an outbound trajectory. But instead of any heavy transportation use, watch how a spinning wire blocks out the exoplanetlight. A parsec is "only" 200,000 AU, so I think a long wire 1 mm wide that is almost 2 AU away from us in some near-antichthonic horseshoe orbit ought to block out about about a 100-meter-per-parsec strip of light reaching a <<1mm sensor from any exoplanet that passes behind its whirling blade. Arrange two such wires moving perpendicularly across the planet at different times and you should be able to do a sort of raster scan of the whole planet ... if the precision with which you detect the light and process the signal is impressive enough. (Probably wouldn't hurt to arrange some much closer small object to block out the parent star) Perhaps I exaggerate, but how much?
          

Planets of the Solar System: Tilts and Axis

 Cache   

How does your favorite planet spin?

Does it spin rapidly around a nearly vertical axis, or horizontally, or backwards?

The featured video animates NASA images of all eight planets in our Solar System to show them spinning side-by-side for an easy comparison. In the time-lapse video, a day on Earth -- one Earth rotation -- takes just a few seconds. Jupiter rotates the fastest, while Venus spins not only the slowest, but backwards. The inner rocky planets, across the top, most certainly underwent dramatic spin-altering collisions during the early days of the Solar System.

The reasons why planets spin and tilt as they do remains a topic of research with much insight gained from modern computer modeling and the recent discovery and analysis of hundreds of exoplanets: planets orbiting other stars.

Event Update For 2019-11-24

 Cache   






The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.




A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.
