Researchers have found that storms on Saturn might rage for longer than expected, and are different from those on its neighbor Jupiter.
Halla is an exoplanet orbiting dying star Baekdu at a close distance, meaning it should have been engulfed by the star as it expanded into a red giant.
Brown dwarfs are usually much cooler than stars like our sun, astronomers have discovered an object orbiting a star that is hotter than the sun.
Scientists have found that around one-third of planets orbiting dwarf stars across the galaxy may orbit at the right distance for liquid water to exist.
The exoplanet may be as volcanic as Jupiter's moon Io, which is very active due to the planet's gravitational forces heating up its interior.
Stars containing higher levels of heavier elements may have orbiting planets that are less hospitable to life, researchers have found.
The planet, VHS 1256 b, is a gas giant around 40 light years away from Earth. It has water, carbon dioxide and methane in its swirling silicate dust clouds.
We have found over 5,000 exoplanets so far outside of our solar system, and the James Webb Telescope will help scientists find planets with atmospheres.
A Reddit post suggests exoplanet Kepler-442b, located over 1,200 light years away, could be more suitable for humans than the Earth itself.
At 40 light years away from Earth, TRAPPIST-1's four Goldilocks zone planets are one of the prime candidates for finding extra-terrestrial life.
Scientists want to book the James Webb Space Telescope to take a closer look at the planet as soon as possible.
The rocky worlds have the potential to harbor liquid water, but until now scientists have been unable to tell if they have atmospheres.
By studying light from distant worlds, Webb will play a key part in the ongoing search for life on other worlds.
The proposed mission would involve a new planet-hunting telescope that would scan nearby stars for signs of Earth-like worlds.
A NASA satellite has found a new world with a radius similar to the gas giant Jupiter, but with a fraction of its mass, where a year lasts just over three days.
From planets with metal clouds to sideways glass rains, scientists have discovered over 5,000 worlds outside the solar system with some unlike anything found in our region of space.
Professor Gary Fuller compares the system to that of Star Wars planet Tatooine, as the discovery of complex molecules among its building blocks could point to the development of life.
NASA has selected new early-stage projects that "expand the scope of the possible," including projectiles capable of pummeling Earth-threatening asteroids.
Evidence of a planet in the habitable zone of a white dwarf is a "real game-changer," astrophysicist Jay Farih told Newsweek.
The discovery of Proxima d "strengthens our belief that low-mass planets like Earth that may be habitable are quite common in our galaxy," researcher João Faria told Newsweek
Astronomers have spotted gas being boiled away from two mini-Neptune exoplanets, possibly transforming them into super-Earths.
Some of the exoplanets orbit their stars so tightly they zoom round in less than a day. Others are tantalizingly Earthlike.
The boiling planet, which has a surface temperature of 4,000 F and is over 1,000 light-years from Earth, orbits its star in less than a day.
Using the TESS exoplanet-hunting space telescope, astronomers have found a binary star system where an object erratically spews thick, light-blocking dust.
The $10 billion dollar space telescope—the largest and most powerful ever built—promises to revolutionize our understanding of the universe.
The discovery of 70 confirmed cosmic orphans not orbiting parent stars is the largest find of freely wandering exoplanets to date.
One of the lightest exoplanets ever discovered, GJ 367b has a surface temperature of over 2,700 degrees Fahrenheit, and orbits a red dwarf star.
