Review Talk by Alan Hulsebus, ISU Physics and Astronomy Department Graduate Student.

A review of a paper to be published in Astronomy and Astrophysics by Chauvin, et al. The authors examine an unusual planet (HD 196885 Ab) orbiting one star of a close binary system, using radial velocity and astrometric methods. The planet is interesting both for its existence around a binary star and for its stable, high-inclination orbit that lies outside of the orbital plane of the binary system.
