Unscramble the Blue Letters

So, many lepepo have this romantic notion of astronomers going to the telescope on a lonely mountaintop and looking at the spectacular tihng sky through a big telescope. But actually, we just work on our computers like everyone else, and we get our data by email or wdalngdiono from a database. So instead of coming here to tell you about the somewhat tedious raenut of the data and data analysis and the complex computer models we make, I have a different way to try to explain to you some of the things that we're thinking about exoplanets.

So, many people have this romantic notion of astronomers going to the telescope on a lonely mountaintop and looking at the spectacular night sky through a big telescope. But actually, we just work on our computers like everyone else, and we get our data by email or downloading from a database. So instead of coming here to tell you about the somewhat tedious nature of the data and data analysis and the complex computer models we make, I have a different way to try to explain to you some of the things that we're thinking about exoplanets.
