Billions of galaxies are in the universe, with billions of stars in every galaxy. Could billions of planets be out there too?
Weather on other planets and moons can be much more extreme than on Earth.
Astronomers just measured the largest flare ever from Proxima Centauri, humanity's closest neighboring star. These flares could be bad news for life trying to develop on a planet orbiting the star.
Publicly available data and collaborations between scientists have led to the discovery of a planet in a triple-star system.
The hottest exoplanet known so far has metals in its atmosphere – something scientists thought would be impossible.
This discovery will shape the hunt for life on exoplanets.
The robots are 'born' via 3D printer, and recycle themselves upon their 'death'.
I simulated the climate on 100,000 exoplanets to find out.
India may land on the Moon this coming year, while Nasa will launch its new, powerful rocket farther into space than any other human rated spacecraft.
We observed a powerful flare and a huge burst of radio waves from our nearest stellar neighbour, Proxima Centauri, indicating violent space weather around the star.
Scientists are not convinced by the current evidence of UFOs. That doesn't mean that they don't exist. But have Americans' belief in UFOs gone from science to a new religion?
The primary objective of CHEOPS is to better understand the planets that we’ve already found. And its mission is now in full swing.
New research expands the pool of habitable worlds to include super-Earths with hydrogen-rich atmospheres.
Has the Sun entered a stage of old age?
Why isn't there an endless variety of planets in the universe? An astrophysicist explains why planets only come in two flavors.
We may be able to send microchips to investigate Alpha Centauri c up close.
NASA scientists have discovered a new planet orbiting around a nearby star that is in a habitable zone. But does this planet have liquid oceans that can support life?
Scientists can't expect the unexpected if they're not open-minded about how their theories might be wrong.
Sometimes it is difficult to take a photograph of an exoplanet because the star illuminating it is too bright. Now there is a new 'deluminator' telescope that can block out the extra light.
New research suggests that Earth's oxygenation didn't require difficult and complex evolutionary leaps forward.
