ASTROPHYSICS PROJECT

NASA AMES RESEARCH CENTER

Moffet Field, California 1991

 

After writing an original piece of research on an additional planet within our solar system, Corday was invited to work at NASA Ames Research Center with SETI Principal Investigator Dr. Laurance Doyle on a project looking for planets or planetary systems around other stars.

 

Corday's work was to apply a stellar inclination theory to known stars and catalog the stars edge-on and pole-on to our line of sight to help focus the world's observatories in search for extrasolar planets [exoplanets]. The project was in its nascence then and together with other projects results in the over 2,337* confirmed exoplanets and 4,496* candidates found to date.
