NASA released a catalogue of Kepler telescope mission. Part of the catalogue is the 219 planet candidates and 10 of which are considered near-Earth like in size and are seen orbiting within the habitable zone.
Scientists have found an Earth-like planet orbiting Proxima Centauri a few light-years away from Earth.
Kepler’s “Alien Megastructure” star has been dramatically dimming, and it’s causing confusion among astronomers.
Scientists listed 20 exoplanets from NASA’s Kepler mission that are likely to be second earth.
Researchers from the University of Arizona confirmed that there are another haul of exoplanets, a total of 104, discovered by NASA's K2 planet-hunting mission.
Two of the newfound alien planets spotted by the Kepler space telescope are likely capable of supporting life.
Super-Earths may want to back off a bit. A new study revealed a new class of planets outside our own solar system with atmospheres stripped away by their host stars.
Mayday, mayday! We have trouble in space. NASA's exoplanet hunter, Kepler, which is stationed 75 million miles away from home, malfunctions. In a routine scheduled contact, the Kepler entered into Emergency Mode, alarming NASA's engineers.
The planet, found with its two stars in a "habitable zone," is a gassy giant and cannot support life. But it might have rocky moons that could.
It looks like the planet Earth is going to need a bigger family tree... NASA recently announced that their planet-hunting Kepler Space Telescope (KST) has discovered the most Earth-like planet ever seen - the latest addition to a list of 12 exceptionally promising and potentially habitable worlds.
NASA's planet hunting Kepler Space Telescope is on a roll! The telescope has monitored more than 150,000 stars beyond our solar system since its launch, and has highlighted more than 4,000 candidate exoplanets for further analysis. As of Tuesday, NASA announced the verification of the 1000th of those worlds, adding to the "Kepler Hall of Fame."
NASA's planet-hunting Kepler telescope finally had an opportunity to prove its worth after it recently discovered a brand-new exoplanet. This is after the spacecraft telescope saw difficulties just last year that forced it to abandon its initial mission.
NASA's planet-hunting Kepler space telescope suffered a failure in one of the reaction wheels that keep it orbiting, the space agency said Wednesday.
