UWAB Scientist Rory Barnes’s work on Exomoons Featured in Astrobiology

Research by UWAB’s Rory Barnes has been featured as the cover story in the latest issue of Astrobiology! In the paper “Exomoon Habitability Constrained by Illumination and Tidal Heating”, Barnes explores the effects that physical and orbital parameters may have on the habitability of “exomoons”, or moons belonging to exoplanets– which it may now be feasible to detect.
