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.
The newly discovered alien world is found in the habitable zone of the star GJ 625.
A newly discovered super-Earth has its own atmosphere and can hold water in all different phases.
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.
There's a great haul of planets orbiting our solar system's neighboring stars, and some of them might even be fit for life.
A tiny planet called Super Earth K2-3d was discovered by NASA's Kepler K2 mission. It is believe to be in the habitable zone that makes it a potential site to harbor alien life.
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.
A batch composed of24 hot Earths, a type of solitary exoplanets, was identified by researchers from NASA, SETI and the University of Nevada.
Astronomers using a ground-based telescope for the first time have detected a "super-Earth" transit, a breakthrough that may lead the hunt for habitable exoplanets in the coming years, according to a new study.
NASA knows exactly how large a new "super Earth" exoplanet is, thanks to a combined effort from the Kepler and Spitzer Space Telescopes. This, according to NASA, is the most accurate measurement of this kind of exoplanet ever taken, and marks a new step towards better understanding these planetary bodies.
Scientists have discovered a new exoplanet that is orbiting a nearby star and could potentially be habitable.
