Washington D.C.[USA], Aug 4 (ANI): New detailed observations with NSF's NOIRLab facilities reveal a young exoplanet, orbiting a young star in the Hyades cluster, that is unusually dense for its size and age. Weighing in at 25 Earth-masses, and slightly smaller than Neptune, this exoplanet's

California [US], August 1 (ANI): Our solar system has one habitable planet -- Earth. According to a new study, other stars could have as many as seven Earth-like planets in the absence of a gas giant like Jupiter.

Washington D.C. [USA], July 20 (ANI): Many exoplanets known today are 'super-Earths,' with a radius 1.3 times that of Earth, and 'mini-Neptunes,' with 2.4 Earth radii. Mini-Neptunes, which are less dense, was long thought to be gas planets, made up of hydrogen and helium.

Paris [France], July 2 (ANI): Several interacting exoplanets have already been spotted by satellites. But a new breakthrough has been achieved with, for the first time, the detection directly from the ground of an extrasolar system of this type.

California [USA], June 25 (ANI): Astronomers have released the largest collection of sharp, detailed images of debris disks around young stars, showcasing the great variety of shapes and sizes of stellar systems during their prime planet-forming years. All of the images show evidence of plan
Washington D.C. [USA], June 24 (ANI): Understanding how planets form is one of the main challenges scientists face when placing our own and other planetary systems in context. Planets are thought to form from the disk-shaped clouds of gas and dust that surround newborn stars, but this pro
Ontario/London [Canada/ UK], June 24 (ANI): Western astronomers may have spotted six new moons orbiting planets in solar systems far from our own - an otherworldly discovery so rare it must wait on future technologies to confirm. Until then, however, the mere possibility of the find sparks e
California [USA], June 23 (ANI): A new study in the Astronomical Journal reports on the detection of the exoplanet HIP 67522 b, which appears to be the youngest hot Jupiter ever found.

Washington D.C. [USA], June 19 (ANI): Scientists have found evidence that planets form in a blink of an eye on a cosmic scale. New results, obtained using the combined power of Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) and Very Large Array (VLA), show that very young disks, with ag

Washington D.C. [USA], June 4 (ANI): The star Kepler-160 and its companion KOI-456.04 are more reminiscent of the Sun-Earth system than any previously known exoplanet-star pair, according to a team of scientists led by the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research (MPS) in Gottingen, Ge

Washington D.C. [USA], May 27 (ANI): Giant planets in our solar system and circling other stars have exotic clouds unlike anything on Earth, and the gas giants orbiting close to their stars -- so-called hot Jupiters -- boast the most extreme.

Washington DC [USA], May 19 (ANI): After examining a dozen types of suns and a roster of planet surfaces, Cornell University astronomers have developed a practical model -- an environmental colour "decoder" -- to tease out climate clues for potentially habitable exoplanets in galaxies far aw
