Step 1 - Access the data
Astronomers use specific software tools to analyse the data and fit mathematical models. You can access one of the tools astronomers use to analyse these exoplanets: Allesfitter. Watch the video tutorial or download the allesfitter guide to learn how to use allesfitter and access the Cheops data.
To begin investigating your exoplanet, use the allesfitter tool to access the light curve data collected by the Cheops satellite and analyse the two mysterious exoplanets: KELT-3b and TOI-560c. Once you have analysed the data, you can continue your investigation into the exoplanet’s properties: size, orbital period and distance, temperature and habitability, and composition.
For a step-by-step guide on how to use Allesfitter, download the guide below, or watch the mini tutorial video. When you’re ready to continue to the next step, return to this page and click “continue the investigation“.
