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.
From the subatomic to the cosmic, don't think for a second that we're at the end of scientific history.
Somewhere out there, just maybe, an alien – probably stranger looking than in our wildest imagination – might be pondering this very question.
Beyond the outer edge of the Solar System, mysterious, unknown worlds await by the thousands. Astronomers can now finally find them and explore them - but will we find another Earth?
Michel Mayor and Didier Queloz thought it would take years to find a planet outside the solar system – they did it in months.
The 2019 Nobel Prize in Physics went to a cosmologist who helped unlock the secrets of the Big Bang's aftermath, and two astronomers who found a "hot Jupiter" orbiting a nearby star.
Scientists who discovered planets in far off stellar systems and the fundamentals of the Big Bang Theory have earned the 2019 Nobel Prize in Physics.
The discovery of a huge planet orbiting a small star challenges our understanding of planet formation.
K2-18 b is now the exoplanet most likely to be habitable.
