what rock group has four men that don’t sing
The fact that you can always count on there being unnecessarily rude people in the world does not mean it is socially acceptable to be unnecessarily rude to people.
some of the most excellent and complex books I’ve ever read were young adult. by the way, YA isn’t a genre in the way that sci-fi and romance are. there can be sci-fi YA, romantic YA, horror YA, political dystopian YA, just about anything you can think of. in fact, a lot of great fantasy, sci fi, or dystopian writers who ARE GIRLS/WOMEN and write primarily FOR GIRLS/WOMEN get shoved into the twilight section because nobody takes your lit seriously if there’s a female writer and a female protagonist. and most of the people i see saying that YA doesn’t count as real literature are dudes. also some of the most accessible books involving important queer characters i’ve read have been YA, and if you don’t see how that’s important idk what to tell you
anyway if you think you’re too good for YA then i think i’m too good for you
X defend young adult X
I highly doubt it’s a joke
The transit light curve gives an astronomer a wealth of information about the transiting planet as well as the star. It is only for transiting exoplanets that astronomers have been able to get direct estimates of the exoplanet mass and radius. With these parameters at hand astronomers are able to set the most fundamental constraints on models which reveal the physical nature of the exoplanet, such as its average density and surface gravity. As mentioned above the transit events do not just give information about the exoplanet, but quite often also information about the star. With telescopes capable of high precision photometry, transit curve anomalies can say something about the activity of the star. An example of this is when an exoplanet crosses star spots (Fig. 2) [source]. This can be seen in the light curve as a small increase in flux due to the light of a cooler part of the star being blocked out.
With a very high precision light curve with a high Signal to Noise (S/N), the light curve can also be used to infer the presence of other planets in the system. Perturbations in the timing of exoplanet transits may be used to infer the presence of satellites or additional planetary companions [source,source].
