Looking for transiting planets in the HZ of GJ 1214

Post by Lazarus on 26th July 2013, 2:10 pm

Search for a habitable terrestrial planet transiting the nearby red dwarf GJ 1214

Unfortunately no luck.

Assuming GJ 1214 hosts a habitable planet larger than Mars, our global analysis of the whole Spitzer dataset leads to a posterior no-transit probability ≥ 97%.

Meanwhile, the atmosphere of GJ 1214b still refuses to be pinned down.
