Planet Kepler 452b

AI reveals unsuspected connections hidden in the complex mathematics underlying the search for exoplanets

Artist’s impression of a sun-like star (left) and a rocky planet about 60% larger than Earth orbiting in the star’s habitable zone. Gravitational microlensing has the ability to detect such planetary systems and determine masses and orbital distances, even if the planet itself is too dark to see. Credit: NASA Ames/JPL-Caltech/T.
