On Notice, Kepler Earth Planets

Image source

NASA’s Kepler planet-hunting mission has spotted 2,326 likely worlds orbiting other stars, including a couple hundred about the size of Earth, and more are on the way. But moving them from the "likely" to "confirmed" column is slow and difficult.

That explains the apparent disconnect between Kepler deputy science-team leader Natalie Batalha mentioning almost casually, a couple weeks ago, that Kepler has found 207 Earth-size candidate planets (defined as no more than 1¼ times Earth’s diameter) — and the news that will be all over the world this afternoon that Kepler has just found the first two Earth-sized exoplanets ever.

Free download from the Three-Toed Sloth, buy the current book, here.

R is the world’s most popular programming language for statistical computing. Drug developers use it to evaluate clinical trials and determine which medications are safe and effective; archaeologists use it to sift through mounds of artifacts and track the spread of ancient civilizations; and actuaries use it to assess financial risks and keep economies running smoothly. In The Art of R Programming, veteran author Norman Matloff takes readers on a guided tour of this powerful language, from basic object types and data structures to graphing, parallel processing, and much more. Along the way, readers learn about topics including functional and object-oriented programming, low-level code optimization, and interfacing R with C++ and Python. Whether readers are doing academic research, designing aircraft, or forecasting the weather, R is the tool of choice for statistical application development, and The Art of R Programming is the definitive guide to learning R.
