My Research: new discovery
Discovery images of a 'Super-Jupiter' around the high mass star Kappa Andromedae. The new planet was first identified by CofC students Thea Kozakis and Laura Stevens, using data from the Subaru 8-meter Telescope on Mauna Kea, Hawaii. The results are published in Carson et al. (2013, Astrophysical Journal Letters, 764, 183). Click here to see a press release of the rare discovery.
