Postdoc Spotlight: Cosmochemist My Riebe

My Riebe

When My Riebe was a kid, she used to run around the fields and forests of southern Sweden wondering how the hills she ran up and down formed, or what the stars she gazed at are made of. As she grew up, the questions became more daunting. What is the meaning of life? Where do we come from? What is her role in an endless universe? Today, she is a postdoctoral associate at DTM researching how organic molecules delivered to the early Earth via meteorites and comets might have helped "kick-start" life, an answer Riebe has been searching for ever since she was a young girl.

Surprise! When a Brown Dwarf is Actually a Planetary Mass Object

Jonathan Gagne

Sometimes a brown dwarf is actually a planet—or planet-like anyway. A team led by Carnegie’s Jonathan Gagné, and including researchers from the Institute for Research on Exoplanets (iREx) at Université de Montréal, the American Museum of Natural History, and University of California San Diego, discovered that what astronomers had previously thought was one of the closest brown dwarfs to our own Sun is, in fact, a planetary mass object.
