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.
After pointing the Allen Telescope Array at a newly-found exoplanet discovered by NASA's Kepler space telescope, SETI reports there is no transmitting alien civilization. But the search continues...
After carefully measuring the masses of small, rocky exoplanets, astronomers have come to the conclusion that our solar system may not be unique.
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.
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?
NASA's Kepler and Spitzer space telescopes have teamed up to precisely measure one exoplanet's vital statistics -- from 300 light-years away. Continue reading →
A newfound alien planet is one for the record books.
A year after being sidelined by a positioning system failure, NASA’s planet-hunting Kepler space telescope is back at work on a new and expanded mission called K2.
