October-December 2007 updates for NITARP

Published: December 15, 2007

  • The Brown Dwarf team had a very successful visit to the SSC in October, during which they came up with some surprising new findings about their object, WZ Sagittae. The team produced the first mid- infrared light curve of any cataclysmic variable. Instead of the expected flat light curve, the results showed a deep and wide eclipse as well as evidence of a large accretion disk. As a result of their findings, members of the Brown Dwarf team submitted a new observing proposal.
  • The first self contained lesson plan has been added to the program Wiki (https://coolwiki.ipac.caltech.edu).
