Oscillating red giants observed during campaign 1 of the Kepler K2 mission: New prospects for galactic archaeology
NASA's re-purposed Kepler mission - dubbed K2 - has brought new scientific opportunities that were not anticipated for the original Kepler mission. One science goal that makes optimal use of K2's capabilities, in particular its 360° ecliptic field of view, is galactic archaeology - the study of the evolution of the Galaxy from the fossil stellar record. The thrust of this research is to exploit high-precision, time-resolved photometry from K2 in order to detect oscillations in red giant stars....[Show more]
