Mission Brief

Astronomers at Las Cumbres Observatory are investigating exoplanets - planets which orbit stars other than our Sun - and you can too.

Joining Agent Exoplanet you will study known exoplanets using images taken by LCO’s telescopes. You'll measure the brightness of a star while a planet moves between it and our viewpoint.

You can examine as many images, from as many exoplanet transit events, as you like and contribute to understanding the properties of each exoplanet.
