      Fortney, J.J.; Nutzman, P.; Miller, N.; Demory, B.-O.; Seager, S.; Désert, J.-M.; Buchhave, L.A.; Charbonneau, D.; Fressin, F.; Latham, D.W.; Geary, J.C.; Rowe, J.; Caldwell, D.A.; Jenkins, J.M.; Christiansen, J.L.; Marcy, G.W.; Isaacson, H.; Howard, A.; Knutson, H.A.; Buchhave, L.A.; Ciardi, D.; Gautier, T.N.; Batalha, N.M.; Bryson, S.T.; Howell, S.B.; Borucki, W.J.; Koch, D.; Lissauer, J.J.; Haas, M.R.; Everett, M.; Deming, D.; Brown, T.M.; Ford, E.B.; Gilliland, R.L.; Fischer, D.A.; Still, M.; Lucas, P.W.; Gillon, M. (2011-11-01)
      We report the discovery of planet Kepler-12b (KOI-20), which at 1.695 ± 0.030 R is among the handful of planets with super-inflated radii above 1.65 R. Orbiting its slightly evolved G0 host with a 4.438 day period, this ...
    • Kepler-15b : A hot Jupiter enriched in heavy elements and the first Kepler mission planet confirmed with the Hobby-Eberly Telescope 

      Endl, M.; MacQueen, P.J.; Cochran, W.D.; Brugamyer, E.J.; Buchhave, L.A.; Rowe, J.; Lucas, P.W.; Isaacson, H.; Bryson, S.; Howell, S.B.; Borucki, W.J.; Caldwell, D.; Christiansen, J.L.; Haas, M.R.; Koch, D.J.; Lissauer, J.J.; Still, M.; Fortney, J.J.; Hansen, T.; Ciardi, D.R.; Demory, B.-O.; Everett, M.; Ford, E.B.; Holman, M.J.; Horch, E.; Jenkins, J.M.; Sanderfer, D.T.; Seader, S.E.; Smith, J.C.; Thompson, S.E.; Twicken, J.D.; MacHalek, P.; Welsh, W.F. (2011-11-01)
      We report the discovery of Kepler-15b (KOI-128), a new transiting exoplanet detected by NASA's Kepler mission. The transit signal with a period of 4.94days was detected in the quarter 1 (Q1) Kepler photometry. For the first ...
    • Kepler-18b, c, and d : A system of three planets confirmed by transit timing variations, light curve validation, Warm-Spitzer photometry, and radial velocity measurements 

      Cochran, W.D.; MacQueen, P.J.; Endl, M.; Fabrycky, D.C.; Fortney, J.J.; Miller, N.; Torres, G.; Fressin, F.; Désert, J.-M.; Ragozzine, D.; Sasselov, D.; Carter, J.A.; Quinn, S.N.; Latham, D.W.; Holman, M.J.; Charbonneau, D.; Rowe, J.F.; Bryson, S.T.; Howell, S.B.; Borucki, W.J.; Koch, D.G.; Uddin, K.; Tenenbaum, P.; Still, M.; Mullally, F.; Lissauer, J.J.; Kinemuchi, K.; Jenkins, J.M.; Henze, C.E.; Haas, M.R.; Caldwell, D.; Brugamyer, E.J.; Ciardi, D.R.; Steffen, J.H.; Winn, J.N.; Seager, S.; Demory, B.-O.; Welsh, W.F.; Uddin, K.; Tenenbaum, P.; Mullally, F.; Jenkins, J.M.; Caldwell, D.; Still, M.; Kinemuchi, K.; Marcy, G.W.; Knutson, H.; Isaacson, H.; Howard, A.; Lucas, P.W.; Johnson, J.A.; Horch, E.; Gilliland, R.L.; Gautier, T.N.; Ford, E.B.; Fischer, D.A.; Everett, M.; Deming, D.; Buchhave, L.; Brown, T.M.; Batalha, N. (2011-11-01)
      We report the detection of three transiting planets around a Sun-like star, which we designate Kepler-18. The transit signals were detected in photometric data from the Kepler satellite, and were confirmed to arise from ...
