Dec. 12, 2015 — Astronomers have discovered what appears to be a tiny star with a giant, cloudy storm, using data from NASA's Spitzer and Kepler space telescopes. The dark storm is akin to Jupiter's Great ... read more

Nov. 30, 2015 — A researcher has successfully generated 3-D simulations of deep jet streams and storms on Jupiter and Saturn, helping to satiate our eternal quest for knowledge of planetary dynamics. The results ... read more

Oct. 29, 2015 — It's like something out of an interplanetary chess game. Astrophysicists have found that a close encounter with Jupiter about four billion years ago may have resulted in another planet's ... read more

Oct. 16, 2015 — For the past 20 years, astronomers peered into the night sky, puzzled about a type of planet called hot ... read more

Oct. 13, 2015 — Scientists using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have produced new maps of Jupiter that show the continuing changes in its famous Great Red Spot. The images also reveal a rare wave structure in ... read more

Sep. 16, 2015 — Twenty years after they were first discovered, 'hot Jupiters', gas giant planets that orbit very close to their star, are still enigmatic objects. Astronomers have now shown that such ... read more

Sep. 10, 2015 — Tides flowing in a subsurface ocean of molten rock, or magma, could explain why Jupiter's moon Io appears to have its volcanoes in the 'wrong' place. New NASA research implies that ... read more

Aug. 13, 2015 — One of the best ways to learn how our solar system evolved is to look to younger star systems in the early stages of development. Now, a team of astronomers has discovered a Jupiter-like planet ... read more

July 15, 2015 — So far, exoplanet surveys have been most sensitive to planetary systems that are populated in their inner regions by massive planets, down to a few times the mass of the Earth. This contrasts with ... read more

June 15, 2015 — Atmospheric scientists propose a possible mechanism for Saturn's polar cyclones: Over time, small, short-lived thunderstorms across the planet may build up angular momentum, or spin, within the ... read more

June 10, 2015 — A 15-yr-old schoolboy has discovered a new planet orbiting a star 1000 light years away in our galaxy. The student was doing a work-experience project when he spotted the planet by finding a tiny dip ... read more

Is There Life out There? Distant Moons May Provide the Answer

May 20, 2015 — Researchers who have modeled planetary systems far beyond our own solar system have found that massive moons larger than Mars might be the best bet in the search for life beyond ... read more

May 12, 2015 — NASA laboratory experiments suggest the dark material coating some geological features of Jupiter's moon Europa is likely sea salt from a subsurface ocean, discolored by exposure to radiation. ... read more

May 1, 2015 — The discovery of a strange exoplanet orbiting very close to a small cool star 500 light years away is challenging ideas about how planets ... read more

Apr. 22, 2015 — Astronomers have made the first-ever direct detection of the spectrum of visible light reflected off an exoplanet. These observations also revealed new properties of this famous object, the first ... read more

Mar. 25, 2015 — The precise measurement of Saturn's rotation has presented a great challenge to scientists, as different parts of this sweltering ball of hydrogen and helium rotate at different speeds whereas ... read more

Mar. 25, 2015 — New observations of the planet's extreme ultraviolet emissions show that bright explosions of Jupiter's aurora likely also get kicked off by the planet-moon interaction, not by solar ... read more

Mar. 23, 2015 — Jupiter may have swept through the early solar system like a wrecking ball, destroying a first generation of inner planets before retreating into its current orbit, according to a new study. The ... read more

Mar. 12, 2015 — Identifying liquid water on other worlds, big or small, is crucial in the search for habitable planets beyond Earth. Though the presence of an ocean on Ganymede has been long predicted based on ... read more

Mar. 4, 2015 — Growing up as a planet with more than one parent star has its challenges. Though the planets in our solar system circle just one star -- our sun -- other more distant planets, called exoplanets, can ... read more
