TrES, XO... still active?

Post by Sirius_Alpha on Fri 8 Jan - 15:48

Anyone know what happened to the TrES (Trans-Atlantic Exoplanet Survey) and the XO programmes? They've been terribly quiet, and I can't find anything on the internets about it.

I agree. TrES has only stopped to 4 planets. No more articles or researches from 2007.

The XO Constellation
The XO Constellation expands the original XO project (McCullough et al. 2005) from one to three robotic telescopes, for a total of six cameras

Crouzet (2017) "Small Telescope Exoplanet Transit Surveys: XO"
https://arxiv.org/abs/1712.07275

There's another planet candidate still to be published, XO-7b. As for the future beyond that:
A re-analysis of the XO data to find new transiting close-in gas giant planets would be of low gain and we will simply pursue the follow-up observations of the candidates we have identified. Although transiting planets with longer periods are more challenging to detect, we found a few candidates with P > 20 days which are also under follow-up observations.

The XO observations have been discontinued in anticipation of the NASA TESS mission and the work on XO is now dedicated to the follow-up and study of individual objects
