The first challenge is the analysis of the transit light curve of the giant exoplanet KELT-3b. By following the instructions in the supporting material and/or following the information in the instructional videos, the students will be able to derive the properties of KELT-3b.
After completing the analysis of KELT-3b the teams should be able to able to follow the same analysis process to TOI-560c data. Teams can submit their project to receive a participation certificate. To submit your project visit hackanexoplanet.esa.int/submit-your-project.
For a chance to win the Best Project Prize teams should submit their scientific report about TOI-560c.
Your team’s submission should include your analysis of the Cheops data of TOI-560c, and it should follow the format of a scientific paper including an abstract, analysis and results, and conclusions.
The winning teams will receive ESA goodies, as well as the opportunity to participate in a webinar with Physics Nobel Laureate Didier Queloz, on 17 July 2023. Deadline for submission is 29 June 2023.
