I'm an Undergraduate Physics student from Imperial College London, about to start the Masters year of my degree. I mostly write about physics research papers that I find interesting in the hope that other people will find them interesting too. The wordpress version of my blog is here.

I have a post up on the Scientific American Guest Blog today. It's all about strange exoplanet discoveries, and what they can tell us about our own solar system. I really enjoyed researching and writing it, so I hope you'll enjoy reading it too...

"Habitable and not-so-habitable exoplanets: how the latter can tell us more about our origins than the former"

 

Beta Pictoris and its planet

The image above is of one of the planets I talk about, and its star. It's called Beta Pictoris b and is only around 60 light years from Earth. You'll have to go read my post to find out what's unusual about it, though.
