"So Many Worlds:" Exoplanet Science From The TESS Mission

Richard (Rick) Schwarz, PhD
Exoplanet Scientist, TESS Mission
Harvard Center For Astrophysics

In August, 2019, Rick gave a presentation to DVAA describing the TESS Mission (Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite).  Since then, working in the TESS Photometry Subgroup, he has been extensively involved in the ground-based follow-up of potential exoplanet detections made on-orbit, using the one- and two-meter telescopes and state-of-the-art imaging systems in the Las Cumbres Observatory Global Telescope (LCOGT) Network.  Rick will present some important results from the over 1,400 exoplanet transit observations he has conducted, analyzed and reported over the past three years.
