RVxK2 is a simultaneous radial velocity observing program with Kepler/K2 Campaign 16 (December 7, 2017 – February 25, 2018). The team is led by Dr. Sharon Xuesong Wang at Carnegie DTM, and team members across the world. Participating telescopes and instruments including Keck/HIRES, APF, IRTF/iSHELL, SONG, MINERVA, and PARAS. We welcome new collaborations any time!
Why the name? RVxK2 = RV times K2. “x” emphasizes the simultaneity of the RVs and Kepler photometry in time.
