What is the wobble method for discovering other worlds?
By: Imonikhe Ahimie
The wobble method, so called, is a means of detecting the existence of extra solar planets, i.e. any planet that accompanies a star other than Sol (hence solar), our own local star, from an earthbound position. Given the extreme distances between the stars (our...
An overview on Project Phoenix
