2012 Hubble Fellows Symposium
Joshua Carter (Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory)
Photometric Detection of Transiting Planets with Highly Nonlinear Ephemerides Joshua Carter (Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory) To date, the tools to find transiting exoplanets in photometric data are identical with respect to a single assumpti ...
2012 Hubble Fellows Symposium
Trent Dupuy (CfA/SAO)
New Probes of Substellar Evolution from Infrared Parallax Programs Trent Dupuy (CfA/SAO) A broad-brush view of the evolution of photometric and spectroscopic properties of brown dwarfs has been in place for nearly a decade, largely thanks to the fi ...
2012 Hubble Fellows Symposium
Daniel Fabrycky (University of California Santa Cruz)
Multiply-Transiting Planetary Systems from Kepler Daniel Fabrycky (University of California Santa Cruz) NASA's Kepler Space Telescope uses photometry to detect dimming due to transits of small planets in front of their stars. It has found ~2300 pla ...
2012 Hubble Fellows Symposium
Henry Hsieh (Univ. of Hawaii – IfA)
Discovery of Main-Belt Comet P/2006 VW139 by Pan-STARRS1 Henry Hsieh (Univ. of Hawaii - IfA) Main-belt comets exhibit cometary activity indicative of ice sublimation yet are dynamically indistinguishable from main-belt asteroids and appear to have ...
2012 Hubble Fellows Symposium
Markus Janson (Princeton University)
Understanding Fomalhaut Markus Janson (Princeton University) Fomalhaut is a nearby A4-type star surrounded by a dust ring that appears to be dynamically sculpted by an unseen giant planet. In 2004 and 2006, a point source was detected at visible wa ...
2012 Hubble Fellows Symposium
Adam Kraus (Univ. of Hawaii – IfA)
``Giant Planets'' in Ultra-Wide Orbits Adam Kraus (Univ. of Hawaii - IfA) Over the past decade, direct imaging surveys for extrasolar planets have discovered a small, but significant number of planetary-mass companions that orbit more than 100 AU f ...
2012 Hubble Fellows Symposium
Karin Oberg (Harvard-Smithsonian CfA)
Chemical Imaging of Protoplanetary Disks Karin Oberg (Harvard-Smithsonian CfA) The disks around pre-main-sequence stars provide the reservoirs of raw material and initial conditions for the formation of planetary systems. Disk chemistry thus sets t ...
2012 Hubble Fellows Symposium
Chris Ormel (UC Berkeley)
How do Planets Become Large? Chris Ormel (UC Berkeley) In the core accretion paradigm of giant planet formation, the first critical step is the formation of a solid core -- massive enough to gravitationally bind the nebular gas. But how do cores ac ...
2012 Hubble Fellows Symposium
John Tobin (NRAO)
A Resolved Proto-Planetary Disk Around One of the Youngest Protostars John Tobin (NRAO) The formation of proto-planetary disks begins during the earliest phase of the star formation process, while the nascent protostar is still surrounded by a dens ...
2012 Hubble Fellows Symposium
Tabetha Boyajian (Georgia State University)
Fundamental Properties of Main-sequence Stars Tabetha Boyajian (Georgia State University) This presentation will review the recent results from a survey to measure the fundamental properties of nearby, main-sequence stars. Direct measurements of th ...
2012 Hubble Fellows Symposium
Sean Couch (University of Chicago)
The Dependence of the Neutrino Mechanism of Core-Collapse Supernovae on the Equation of State Sean Couch (University of Chicago) Numerical simulations of core-collapse supernovae suggest that the critical neutrino luminosity necessary to cause expl ...
2012 Hubble Fellows Symposium
Nathalie Degenaar (University of Michigan)
Peeking into the Crust of a Neutron Star Nathalie Degenaar (University of Michigan) Neutron stars are the densest, directly observable stellar objects in our Universe. As such, they provide a gateway to study the behavior of matter under extreme ph ...
2012 Hubble Fellows Symposium
Mansi Kasliwal (Carnegie Institution for Science)
Elusive Explosions in the Local Universe Mansi Kasliwal (Carnegie Institution for Science) Until recently, the venerable field of cosmic explosions was plagued with a glaring six-magnitude luminosity "gap" between the brightest novae and faintest s ...
2012 Hubble Fellows Symposium
Daniel Perley (Caltech)
The Host Galaxies of Dark Gamma-Ray Bursts Daniel Perley (Caltech) If gamma-ray bursts can serve as tracers of overall cosmic star-formation, then a significant number of these events should occur within luminous, dust-enshrouded galaxies. This ant ...
