Examples

  • I think it is certainly possible, since a planetary trip always involves a long duration flight, that initial flights to the planets—that is, particularly circumplanetary, nonlanding, but exploratory flights—can be combined with Earth orbiting spacecraft i.e., some sort of space station to develop that long-term capability with the very same type of spacecraft.

  • Variability at optical wavelengths and the brightness in the F606W passband suggest additional sources of luminosity such as starlight reflected from a circumplanetary ring system.

  • Here we propose follow-up NICMOS observations to verify that the emission observed in F814W is due to the emergent flux from passive cooling of the planet, as opposed to other explanations, such as reflected light from a Saturn analog with a circumplanetary debris disk that would produce a bluer F814W - F110W color.
