A team led by astronomers at The University of Texas at Austin used NASA Keck time to capture images of the lowest-mass extrasolar planet ever discovered that has a direct mass measurement and an orbit similar to giant planets in our own solar system.
Astronomers using W. M. Keck Observatory on Maunakea in Hawai'i have discovered that aurorae at visible wavelengths appear on all 4 major moons of Jupiter. This work was partially supported by a NASA Keck PI Data Award administered by NExScI.
In support of NASA's search for life, the NASA Exoplanet Archive has launched a new interactive table of nearby stars that are likely to be targeted by the Habitable Worlds Observatory.
