New experimental results on methane may help us to uncover whether Uranus really is the coldest planet.
Scientists used to think that the ocean on Enceladus would be transient, perhaps freezing after a few million years. A new study suggests this isn't the case.
Cassini may be gone but the data it left behind could help reveal how long Saturn's day is and how its magnetic field is generated.
As Cassini’s titanic mission comes to an end, we need to start thinking ahead. A combined mission to explore Saturn's moons Titan and Enceladus would be a good place to start.
The last signals from Cassini space probe before it burns up in Saturn's atmosphere will tracked by the Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex.
The Cassini space probe discovered liquid lakes, poisonous gases and the basic elements of life on Saturn's moon, Titan.
The Cassini space probe took us up close and through the beautiful rings of Saturn. It captured some amazing images, and even the sound of the rings during its mission.
The Cassini space probe discovered several new moons on its mission to Saturn, and revealed fresh views of the moons we already knew about.
With only days to go before NASA's Cassini space probe ends its two-decade mission to explore Saturn, what has it revealed about the ringed planet, the second largest in our solar system?
The Voyager space probes sent back some amazing images of the planets in the outer Solar System, and they're still talking to Earth every day via Australia's tracking station.
Scientists discover rare molecules on Titan which suggests it's creating the building blocks of life.
Fingers on buzzers.
One of the most successful space exploration missions of all time still has a lot left to uncover.
With the probe now on its 'Grand Finale,' a Cassini team member describes the amazing discoveries it made about the ringed planet and its many moons.
Earth is a relatively dry planet compared to some of the other ocean worlds in our Solar system. Life needs water so what about life on these other places?
New findings make it hard to imagine a more important goal for solar system exploration than searching for microbial life in Enceladus' internal sea.
There has been much excitement this week about the possibility of water -- and life -- on some newly discovered exoplanets. But we can look closer to home for evidence of ET.
A new theory could change our understanding of the moons in our solar system – and the genesis of life itself.
It's regarded as a Biblical myth, but what the magi are supposed to have seen is rooted in astronomy.
Recent Martian findings are just the latest discoveries of aurora on other planets, both in and out of our solar system.
