Astronomers have found a population of unique planetary systems consisting of isolated worlds. These molten worlds, known as "hot Earths," are located too far away from its other siblings or are uniquely the only planets in their own systems.
A tiny and inexpensive telescope will try to find Earth-like exoplanets in Alpha Centauri.
The discovery of Proxima b as a potentially life-sustaining exoplanet raised interest in other habitable worlds beyond the solar system. When it’s time to leave, where will mankind go?
Scientists listed 20 exoplanets from NASA’s Kepler mission that are likely to be second earth.
Captain Kirk and Commander Spock aka Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto survived the quiz of their life when a NASA official challenged the two in a real-life science quiz show about space.
Two exoplanets in another planetary system are discovered to be rocky and researchers are studying their atmospheres to see if they can host life.
Two of the newfound alien planets spotted by the Kepler space telescope are likely capable of supporting life.
Scientists from the Royal Observatory in Belgium believe that there could be oceans hidden underneath the exoplanets Kepler 623 and 62f.
Scientists marvel at the fact that three hot Jupiters were found on the Messier 67 cluster. According to the study, hot Jupiters weren't detected before and now they discovered them in unusually large numbers.
In a breakthrough discovery, scientists found traces of methyl or methanol in planet-forming discs. The findings are essential in studying how these molecules are absorbed by protoplanetary bodies.
The new type of cooler for NASA's James Webb Telescope underwent rigorous testing to affirm its readiness for its upcoming space flight in 2018.
Hot Jupiters are being scrutinized by scientist because they found water vapor from the clouds and haze formations from some of the discovered exoplanets. Scientists believe that there could be atmospheric water hidden beneath the clouds.
A new study reveals that an exoplanet located in the outermost region of a five-planet system 1,200 might years away of Earth may contain an ocean, making it capable of sustaining life.
The strange radio signals detected in 2009 might have just come from extreme lightning storms in an exoplanet, and is unlikely to be alien communication, revealed a new study by scientists from Scotland.
