Astronomers may have spotted a baby planet being born around a young star. The new findings may reveal a bit more about planet formation outside of our own galaxy.
In a study researchers found that a large number of earth-like planets are becoming uninhabitable due to harsh amounts of radiation.
The new finding is allowing the researchers to examine the galaxies' building blocks. The researchers have manged to explore the structure, formation and the evolution of galaxies through the new finding.
Researchers have discovered an exoplanet that's is a little bigger than earth and it is located close to the solar system. The newly found exoplanet could be potentially habitable, according to researchers from the Kavli Foundation.
A team of astronomers have found evidence that main-belt asteroid, 493 Griseldis, collided with another space object earlier this year. The researchers made their observations using the Subaru Telescope.
Astronomers from Yale and Harvard have discovered a distant galaxy with a "heartbeat." The researchers even got a pulse of a heartbeat every 270 days.
Astronomers have discovered one of the most distant objects in the solar system, a mysterious dwarf planet located three times the distance of Pluto away.
For the first time researchers have captured an image of an asteroid ripped apart to form a star's glowing ring system. The white dwarf star was identified as SDSS1228+1040, by researchers from the University of Warwick's Astrophysics Group.
The researchers found that the far-off planet is surrounded by a pale orange haze, which is similar to the one that once engulfed the young earth. The newly found clues could be a sign of possible life in outer space, according to the researchers.
Winds of over 2 kilometers per second have been discovered speeding past a planet outside of Earth's solar system.
Since the late 1980s, researchers have discovered nearly 5,000 planetary bodies orbiting stars other than the sun. Now, scientists have defined what should be called a planet and what shouldn't be.
