    Science 325:709. 2009
    ..The depth of the occultation is similar in photometric precision to the detection of a transiting Earth-size planet for which the mission was designed...

    Science 340:587-90. 2013
    ..Theoretical models of Kepler-62e and -62f for a stellar age of ~7 billion years suggest that both planets could be solid, either with a rocky composition or composed of mostly solid water in their bulk...

    Science 276:390-2. 1997
    ..No organic molecules were produced in a carbon dioxide-rich mixture, which is at odds with thermodynamic equilibrium approaches to shock chemistry and has implications for the modeling of shock-produced organic molecules on early Earth...
