In 2021, searchers recovered a meteorite that fell over the UK just hours earlier. Scientists have now reconstructed its story.
To date, we have not heard from any aliens. Nor have we seen any – but here are the fascinating projects working to change that.
Can artificial intelligence transform the search for alien intelligence?
AI’s ability to identify ‘technosignatures’ missed by classical algorithms is an exciting step forward for radio astronomers.
The James Webb space telescope is making the headlines again – this time completing its first chemical inventory of a distant, exotic world.
Some scientists are keen to send humans to Venus on a flyby.
Research on exoplanets over the next couple of decades could help us more accurately estimate how many intelligent alien civilisations there are in our galaxy.
There may be life on Jupiter’s moon Europa or Saturn moon’s Enceladus.
Have astronomers finally found evidence of intelligent found life beyond Earth?
We should not be surprised that some of the innumerable rocks on Mars have weird shapes, because many have been sand-blasted by wind erosion for billions of years.
A photo of ‘doorway’ on Mars shows how ready our minds are to see significance and signs of life in the natural world.
The dwarf planets in our Solar System are cold, dark, far away and full of surprises.
Some people are outraged that human negligence will disfigure the Moon. But that’s not the main issue.
Astronomers hunting extraterrestrials were excited to discover an intriguing signal, but closer inspection has revealed it wasn’t aliens.
For the first time ever, astronomers have astrophysical evidence that Jupiter and many other planets will survive the death of the Sun.
By studying the chemical makeup of binary stars, astronomers found many planetary systems are far less peaceful than ours.
Can the Galileo Project find alien technology?
Even if aliens exist, are intelligent like humans and interested in making contact with us, what are the chances they’ll be close enough for us to hear them screaming their presence into the cosmos?
One in a million or one in ten? Mathematics can help us work out the odds of whether recent sightings of UFOs are really alien spaceships.
No conclusive evidence that extraterrestrial life exists has been found…yet.
