Week 8: More synspec and SNR

What I completed this week: Made a pull request to synphot for implementing the signal-to-noise calculators that I wrote last week. I forgot to mention in my blog post last week that writing this module was a really useful exercise for me because I was introduced to so many new things! Like: writing ...READ MORE...

New propagators

What are propagators and why do we care about them? One of the most common problems in astrodynamics and orbital mechanics is that we want to know where a body will be at a given position along its orbit for a given time. It is possible to integrate by hard the two-body equation and then apply some ...READ MORE...

GSoC update

My tasks for phase-2 is mostly centered around improving parfive.Python asyncio turned out to be trickier than I thought. This is surprising because I have had my share of JS and Dart which has more or less similar async paradigms.Anyway, after learning asyncio, I implemented downloading by parts fo ...READ MORE...

Weeks 6 and 7: Synspec and SNR

What I completed these last two weeks: Trying to solve the offset problem for example 2: Do the same analysis for multiple objects. Is the systematic error still there?The systematic error persists strongly for both objects, as you can see in the Figure 1 below. So it’s not object-specific, and I th ...READ MORE...
