How does Data Science help find planets?

Recently we had Noa Yehezkel with a talk at the Higher School of Economics which means the official start of our project! She shared her experiens during the internship at NASA and how data science and deep learning are used to finging exoplanets. Noa talked about TESS mission, Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite, and former mission Kepler, which are critical to increase our understanding of earth-like planets outside our solar system.

Stellar start of our program✨

Check out our website, we will soon publish a video of the lecture and here is Noa's presentation!
