Exoplanet Hunter to be Honored

Last week the National Science Foundation announced that former Caltech astronomer David Charbonneau will be awarded the Alan T. Waterman Award in May.

Dave has been a leader in the field of exoplanets and here at Palomar he established the now retired 4-inch Sleuth telescope which found a few exoplanets of its own.

Be sure to check his photo from National Geographic Magazine.
