GJ 1214 update

Post by Lazarus on 31st October 2012, 5:11 am

GJ 1214 reviewed : Trigonometric parallax, stellar parameters, new orbital solution and updated bulk properties for the super-Earth GJ 1214b
http://arxiv.org/abs/1210.8087

The star is ~10% further away than previously thought, leading to higher mass and luminosity.

A density comparable to Earth for the planet GJ 1214b is now ruled out.
