    Default The search for ringed exoplanets



    "Have we not discovered ringed exoplanets just because they’re hard to identify? Or is it because they’re not out there? A team of scientists led by Masataka Aizawa (University of Tokyo) has set out to answer this question by conducting a systematic search for rings around long-period planet candidates."

    It would be nice to know how unusual Saturn's ring system is.

    Sounds like a nice topic for one's doctoral dissertation.

    Nice and careful work. The geometry in developing solutions of the light curve is certainly not trivial!
