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.
Recently, scientists discover that ice-covered world of Europa has a noisy large ocean splashes.
Finding an Earth-like planet is a success for Project Blue. With so many possibilities out there, Alpha Centauri system may be the answer.
Everybody knows that there is no water on Venus. However, a team of researchers working with ESA’s (European Space Agency) Venus Express mission believes that the oceans that once existed on the surface of the planet were swept away by powerful electric winds.
A team of astronomers has made an exciting discovery by spotting a planet that has two stars. This Tatooine-like planet with two suns is present within the Cygnus Constellation and has been discovered with the help of the Kepler Space Telescope.
Mars and Earth are at their closest encounter in more than a decade with only 47 million miles separating the two planets. The closest recorded encounter in the last 60, 000 years was in 2003 when the two cosmic buddies are only 35 million miles apart.
The New Horizons space mission has recently stumbled upon interesting discoveries beyond Pluto along the fringes of the solar system, the so-called Kuiper Belt Objects (KBOs). After discovering the KBO named 1994 JR1, the scientists are setting their sights to another one called 2014 MU69 which would help explain the cosmic origins of our sun-centered planetary system.
A post-Pluto flyby carried out by NASA-funded New Horizons mission on a Kuiper Belt object (KBO) known as 1994 JR1 debunked earlier theory of the ex-ninth planet’s quasi-satellite. Expanding missions on KBOs in the fringes of the solar system could well explain our cosmic origins.
An international group of astronomers has just spotted three planets with seemingly Earth-like attributes that appear to be revolving around an ‘ultracool dwarf star’. Scientists think that the next step of their discovery is to uncover the possibility of life on these other worlds.
In a new photo released by NASA's New Horizons spacecraft team, a spider is shown with sprawling, reddish legs.
Scientists may have the what could be the Alien Earth developing around a star nearby.
ESO scientists have captured an extremely detailed image of a protoplanetary disc, which has given an insight into the evolution of the earth as well as other planets. It also shows a small planet getting formed.
The planet's orbit was estimated based on the gravitational force it exerts on some Kuiper Belt Objects.
Comet Lovejoy may have hit the earth at some distant past and triggered off signs of life.
A new toddler planet has been discovered, and could indicate how our earth was formed, say scientists.
