New Paper Investigates Exoplanet Climates

Quote

Inspired by the Milankovitch cycles that play a role in Earth’s climate over time, new research at Florida Tech examines how these recurring orbital movements may affect the climate of exoplanets.

“Sporadic Spin-Orbit Variations in Compact Multi-planet Systems and their Influence on Exoplanet Climate,” a study by Florida Tech exoplanetary scientist and astrobiologist Howard Chen and researchers at Georgia Tech, University of Toronto and NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, features new research that looks at the planetary spin associated with the Milankovitch cycle. Early findings have shown multi-planet systems that have planets close together influence each other’s spin rate, and the spin rate can change dramatically throughout time.
