Scientists have found that Proxima b, a potentially habitable exoplanet nearest to Earth, may frequently experience massive superflares from its star, making it less habitable than believed.
Scientists have discovered a super-Earth that is five times the Earth’s mass. The discovery is only the latest in a long line of exoplanets being discovered around the M-class or red dwarf stars.
NASA’s upcoming TESS mission will search for planets beyond the solar system to discover a new Earth.
A tiny and inexpensive telescope will try to find Earth-like exoplanets in Alpha Centauri.
Researchers at the CNRS research institute in France have discovered that Proxima b, the nearest Earth-like exoplanet, could have a surface covered with oceans. With this astounding discovery, the question lies -- could life outside Earth possible?
The search for the next habitable planet continues, and NASA will stop at nothing to find Earth 2.0. However, one NASA director claims the search will be over in the next decade. Are scientists at the space agency close to finding it?
With the recent discovery of Proxima b, an Earth-like planet orbiting the star Proxima Centauri, people have begun speculating what life on the planet would be like. A scientist from MIT shares her thoughts about human existence on Proxima b.
Carbon gave life to the planet, but the question is where did this carbon come from? Scientists from Rice University have a possible answer: a planetary collision 4.4 billion years ago.
After the discovery of the Earth-like planet in Alpha Centauri, the scientific community is now asking the very pertinent question, is Proxima B really habitable?
Stephen Hawking and Yuri Milner's Breakthrough Starshot may conduct a flyby to the newly discovered habitable planet, Proxima B.
Experts identified the top 20 exoplanets that can potentially hold water and possibly, alien life.
