Where did the solar system really come from? Scientists and researchers today are coming up with many theories and leads that could be the answer.
Finding an Earth-like planet is a success for Project Blue. With so many possibilities out there, Alpha Centauri system may be the answer.
Scientists don't only try to find Earth-like planets with their sophisticated telescopes. They also look at the younger sun-like stars for more information. The logic says that since Earth is the only planet where life can sustain, if the scientists have to look for other planets to find surviving life forms, they will have to look in places that have conditions similar to our own. However, according to Lisa Kaltenegger, astronomer, a lot of opportunity is being lost.
Researchers from Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics suggested that in a generation or so we would be able to signs of life on distant planets.
Researchers who studied a brown dwarf about 20 light years away, observed auroras in its magnetosphere.
The planets will be within half degree of line of sight in the night sky though they are millions of miles apart.
In early days of solar system, Jupiter destroyed everything that came in its way, researchers have found.
The new study shows that planet-forming dust is resultant of supernovas.
At least a couple of new planets larger than Earth might be present in our solar system beyond Pluto, orbiting sun, according to a new analysis.
