In a sneak peek of a possible future mission to Saturn's moon Titan, NASA has showcased their vision of a robotic submersible that could explore the moon's vast lakes of liquid methane and ethane.
As NASA applauds its boosted budget request, scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory are excited to see a robotic mission to Europa take a big step towards being launched in the mid-2020s.
On Jan. 14, 2005, the European Huygens probe landed on Titan's foggy surface, revealing a very alien, yet familiar, world.
Eight new exoplanets have been discovered, two of which are nearly Earth-sized orbiting within their stars' habitable zones. Continue reading

NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity’s discovery of organic compounds in the ground and plumes of methane in the air opens two potentially related investigations into whether or not the planet most like Earth in the solar system also hosted life.
A gas strongly associated with life on Earth has been detected again in the Martian atmosphere, opening a new chapter in a decade-old mystery about the on-again, off-again appearance of methane on Mars.
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?
