Aliens might be out there, and if they are, NASA wants to find them. The NExSS project releases a series of papers to help scientists who are hunting for extraterrestrial life in far-flung planets.
Elon Musk says new research saying humanity is alone in the universe makes interplanetary colonization much more important. The SpaceX CEO is working to get a human civilization on Mars.
A new study answers the famous Fermi Paradox bluntly, saying intelligent life outside of Earth likely does not exist. The scientists say that humans are probably alone, so don't be surprised that aliens haven't come knocking.
A new study dashes the hopes of alien enthusiasts as a supposed UFO crash site on Mars turns out to be just an especially strange natural rock formation born out of explosive volcanic eruptions and billions of years of erosion.
If there is extraterrestrial life out in the cosmos, Breakthrough Listen's upgraded Parkes telescope will find it. The SETI initiative begins the hunt, sifting through billions of stars in hopes of spotting signs of aliens.
Extraterrestrial life may be trapped in the super-Earths unable to leave, which is why humans haven't run into alien life yet. New research says bulky planets make space travel much harder for aliens.
Researchers started a study to better understand the climate in Proxima B. The planet is found in the habitable zone that's why there is a huge possibility that it may have the same conditions as the Earth.
An astronomer suggests that alien life could be extinct today. He added that those looking for signs of life should look for traces of former alien life forms as well.
Scientists are studying Earth-borne and meteorite-extracted amino acids to identify building blocks of life. Once identified they may be able to recreate a condition where extraterrestrial life could thrive.
ESO said there's a newly discovered exoplanet in a habitable zone considered to be the best candidate in the search for life. Scientists believe that it is even more promising compared to TRAPPIST-1.
A study based on Cassini and the Hubble Space telescope found out that Saturn's moon Enceladus has a subsurface energy source. The vents underneath the ocean and on the seabed could produce molecules that can feed alien life.
New information from NASA's Cassini mission reveals that a form of chemical energy that could support alien life is found in Saturn's moon Enceladus. The space agency is determined to protect the moon from contamination by destroying its Cassini spacecraft.
Scientists are investigating the origin of fast radio bursts detected by the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico. They did not rule out the possibility that the signals were sent by an alien civilization.
Could these radio bursts be from transmitters powering extraterrestrial probes?
