Behind the Papers on unusual astrophysical objects and the search for Earth analogs are our most viewed from January:
- From Paris to LA to Hawaii: Anna Ciurlo's shares the story behind her Nature paper which identified some strange blobby objects orbiting the supermassive black hole at the centre of the galaxy. You can also listen to Anna discuss this work in a Nature podcast.
- New candidates in the hunt for exo-Earths: reporting in the Astrophysical Journal, Fabo Feng and colleagues recently found dozens of exoplanet signals, including a cold Neptune and two temperate super-Earths, when they combined data observations from multiple instruments.
Thanks for writing!
