Washington D.C. [USA], April 7 (ANI): The upper layers in the atmospheres of gas giants -- Saturn, Jupiter, Uranus, and Neptune -- are hot, just like Earth's. But unlike Earth, the Sun is too far from these outer planets to account for the high temperatures. Their heat source has been one of

Washington D.C. [USA], Mar 3 (ANI): A new research has found that some of the extremely low-density, "cotton candy like" exoplanets called super-puffs may actually have rings.
Washington D.C. [USA], Feb 29 (ANI): University of British Columbia (UBC) astronomy student Michelle Kunimoto has discovered 17 new planets, including a potentially habitable, Earth-sized world, by combing through data gathered by NASA's Kepler mission.
Cambridge [England], Feb 27 (ANI): Astronomers have found an exoplanet more than twice the size of Earth which could be potentially habitable. This discovery might take us a step closer to search for life on planets significantly larger than Earth but smaller than Neptune.

Washington D.C. [USA], Jan 9 (ANI): Astronomers are looking for planets in the habitable zone of stars which is often called 'goldilocks zone' where temperatures are favourable for liquid water to exist on the surface of a planet.
Washington D.C. [USA], Jan 7 (ANI): Researchers in a recent study have found out how to use NASA's James Webb Space Telescope for quickly identifying nearby planets that could help in researchers search for life and search of the worlds that are uninhabitable due to vapourisation of oceans.
