Episode 8: Beyond Exoplanets with TESS

The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite was designed to find exoplanets — but, it turns out that there’s a huge amount of other science that it can do, too! In this episode, we provide an inside look at the TESS Ninja 3 conference and explore the range of science being studied with TESS: comets, stellar clusters and flares, trans-Neptunian objects, black holes, and more.
