...through the carbon-silicate cycle," said Yale doctoral candidate John Moriarty, who led the research, recently published in Astrophysical Journal. "It's an open question as to how carbon-rich chemistry will affect the habitability of exoplanets. We hope our findings will spark interest in research to help answer these questions."
"Thanks to the Canadian Microvariability and Oscillation of STars telescope, Canadian astronomers have produced a decade's worth of astounding discoveries and Canada's space industry gained essential expertise. As MOST prepares for its retirement, I offer my congratulations to the talented team of astronomers and engineers on this Canadian science and technology success story." - General (Retired) Walter Natynczyk, CSA President
