An 11 Earth-mass, long-period Sub-Neptune orbiting a Sun-like star

Abstract:

Although several thousands of exoplanets have now been detected and characterized, observational biases have led to a paucity of long-period, low-mass exoplanets with measured masses and a corresponding lag in our understanding of such planets. In this paper we report the mass estimation and characterization of the long-period exoplanet Kepler-538b. This planet orbits a Sun-like star (V = 11.27) with = - M + 0.892 0.035 0.051* Me and R =* - + 0.8717 0.0061 0.0064 Re. Kepler-538b is a - + 2.21...
