TOI 700 e: Earth-sized Planet in Habitable Zone of Its Star

January 14, 2023 |

Using data from NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite, Scientists have discovered an exoplanet roughly the size of Earth orbiting around a faraway star — within the habitable zone, meaning it could host liquid water on its surface. Read More

Stephenson 2-18 The Largest Star Ever Discovered

September 12, 2021 |

Stars have always been part of civilizations. In Ancient Times, we relied upon the apparent motion of these bodies to navigate distances, to measure the passage of time therefore determining seasons, months, and years. Simply, stars are the very reason we exist. We are literally made up of “stardust”. Read More

Proxima Centauri c: Nearest Super-Earth World To Us

June 30, 2020 |

Scientists have announced the discovery of a second Exoworld orbiting Proxima Centauri, the closest stellar neighbor to our Sun, a super-Earth highly significant for planet formation models. Read More

Hunting Extraterrestrial Life On Exomoons

June 8, 2016 |

In the past two decades, astronomers have detected more than 2000 exoplanets, the first of these detections were gas giants as massive as Jupiter that are so close to the host that they are heated to high temperature in order of 2,000°C; but now, for the first time, astronomers are getting down to the regime of potentially habitable Earth-like worlds.

The Promise of Kepler-62f: A Distant Earth-like World

May 30, 2016 |

On April 18, 2013, NASA’ astronomers announced the discovery of a new planetary system composed of five worlds orbiting a star somewhat cooler and smaller than the Sun, approximately 1,200 light-years away from us in the constellation Lyra. Read More

Gliese 581d: Earth-like World Within Our Reach

May 25, 2016 | 1

NASA astronomers said they’ve discovered a planet that they believe has a 100% chance of having life on it and its relatively close to us, just in our cosmic neighborhood — meet Gliese 581d. Read More

May 11, 2016 |

On Tuesday evening, NASA held an extraordinary press conference announcing Kepler’ last results on exoplanets research: amazingly, the number of known alien planets has just gone up by more than 60%. Read More

Meet HAT-P-11b A Neptune Like World with Extreme Weather

May 5, 2016 |

Weather here on Earth can be really nasty, but on distant worlds, the atmospheric conditions can be extreme, far beyond anything we saw or imagine. Here’s why you should not go to HAT-P-11b. Read More

Nearby Three Earth Like Planets Discovered

May 4, 2016 | 2

Our biggest challenge is to find potential life-bearing worlds among the stars. Discovering a planet that are not just Earth-sized, but truly Earth-like will mark a milestone in astronomy and beyond. Read More

Crazy Technologies To Better Find Distant Earth like Planets

April 30, 2016 |

Finding a true Earth analog orbiting within the habitable zone of a sun-like star is a sort of holy grail to astronomers and we are about to get a lot closer to detect one in the near future as new incredible inventions and technologies are available to us now. Read More

NASA Hubble Telescope Spots A Makemake Moon

April 29, 2016 |

Our solar system is a huge place, it’s true edge stretches far beyond the Kuiper belt. Maybe, you are familiar with Pluto, the demoted planet and the most famous dwarf planet within the Kuiper belt, but there are too many objects beyond it; actually, there are dwarf planets larger than Pluto residing there. Read More

A Venus-Mass Planet In Extremly Rare Planetary System

April 25, 2016 |
