Zwintz et al. Report that photometric time series of the gamma Dor star 43 Cyg obtained with the BRITE Constellation nano satellites allow a detailed study of its pulsational properties, leading to new constraints on its interior structure. They attempt to measure a g mode period spacing pattern, yielding the near core rotation rate of 43 Cyg and a redetermination of the star fundamental atmospheric parameters and chemical composition.
