Saturn's moon, Titan, is the only moon in the solar system that has an atmosphere as thick of the Earth's. Now, scientists have discovered that Titan's atmosphere may fluctuate according to the sun's 11-year solar cycle.
The hunt for alien life continues, but one planet may not be as hospitable to life as scientists once believed. Researchers have examined our cosmic neighbor, Tau Ceti, and have found that the system is unlikely to host life.
Scientists may have found out not only how asteroids formed, but also how our planet was created.
How is lightning created? That's a difficult question and now, scientists have used studies on exploding stars to help unlock the answer.
Astronomers have spotted the first ever exoplanet in the visible light spectrum. The exoplanet, called 51 Pegasi b, is located just 50 light-years from Earth in the constellation of Pegasus.
Make sure to look to the skies this week. The Lyrid meteor shower is set to put on quite the show. The annual meteor shower is active each year from about April 16 and April 25, but you'll be able to catch the peak of this sky show tomorrow before dawn.
As two galaxies enter the final stages of merging, scientists have theorized that their supermassive black holes will actually form a "binary," two black holes in such close orbit that they are gravitationally bound to one another.
Astronomers have uncovered the inner region of a young star and its planets located 130 light-years from Earth.
A cold cosmic mystery may have been solved. The Cold Spot, which is a larger-than-expected unusually cold area of the sky in the map of radiation leftover from the Big Bang, may finally have an explanation.
Space trash is a growing problem as more and more debris is released into our Earth's orbit. Now, scientists have put forward a blueprint for a purely space-based system to solve the issue.
It turns out that complex organic molecules aren't only found on Earth. Scientists have discovered that these molecules, which are essential for life, already appear in the regions where stars similar to our star are born.
