Distant Worlds-Bastien and Kitt Peak Observatory

Astrophysicist Fabienne Bastien and Kitt Peak National Observatory

Astrophysicist Fabienne Bastien studies stars that host planetary systems, and how their characteristics affect our ability to detect and learn about exoplanets. A new generation of spectrographs, such as the NEID that will soon be deployed at Kitt Peak National Observatory, shown here, will provide precise details about distant stars and their planetary systems.
