Astronomers have found an ancient, more compact version of our solar system, which could have implications for the search of extraterrestrial life.
If you thought Saturn's ring system was impressive, spare a thought for the rings surrounding this giant exoplanet -- the rings of J1407b are so big that they eclipse the massive world's host star!
NASA's Kepler spacecraft has discovered its 1,000th alien planet, further cementing the prolific exoplanet-hunting mission's status as a space-science legend.
NASA's Kepler space telescope has detected its first new extrasolar planet after mission engineers were able to save the mission from a premature death after two of the exoplanet hunter's four stabilizing reaction wheels failed last year.
Every year, the Hubble Space Telescope seems to revolutionize our understanding of our vast and beautiful universe. 2014 was no different.
For the first time, a computer simulation has shown that, in theory, habitable binary planets can exist -- what would this mean for the evolution of alien life?
New research suggests we might want to widen our search for Earth-like exoplanets. Younger stars, it turns out, are hot enough to support exoplanetary life farther away from a star than we thought.
The world's largest telescope has gotten its official construction go-ahead, keeping the enormous instrument on track to start observing the heavens in 2024.
