Engaging Citizen Scientists to Keep Transit Times Fresh and Ensure the Efficient Use of Transiting Exoplanet Characterization Missions
This white paper advocates for the creation of a community-wide program to maintain precise mid-transit times of exoplanets that would likely be targeted by future exoplanet characterization platforms. Given the numerous targets that will require careful monitoring, this network will initially be devised as a citizen science project.
