Perfected The Precision Radial-Velocity Technique

Lick Observatory, CA

UC astronomers, including Steve Vogt, perfected the precision radial-velocity technique for finding extra-solar planets around other stars using the Shane telescope. With data from Lick and Keck observatories, they found hundreds of extra-solar planets, leading to the discovery that our Galaxy is teeming with extra-solar systems.
