Gemini Planet Imager

Gemini summary image

Scientist: Franck Marchis

In November 2014, the Gemini Planet Imager Exoplanet Survey will start to look directly at exoplanets.  It uses interesting new technology to do this successfully.  Its first targets are a list of 650 stars with giant planets. An excel file of all 650 exoplanet targets is also available for download.  To find out more about each star in the list, plug the first column (the id of the star) into SIMBAD's quick search tool.
