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
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 18 (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 DC [USA], June 10 (ANI): A team of scientists has expanded our understanding of potentially habitable planets orbiting distant stars by including a critical climate component -- the presence of airborne dust.
Washington DC [USA], June 9 (ANI): A new research led by scientists at NASA and the Italian Space Agency has implications for the entire Saturn system as well as other planets and moons.
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 D.C. [USA], May 14 (ANI): Astronomers using the Subaru Telescope have determined that the Earth-like planets of the TRAPPIST-1 system are not significantly misaligned with the rotation of the star.

Washington D.C. [USA], April 10 (ANI): For the first time, scientists have directly measured wind speed on a brown dwarf, an object larger than Jupiter (the largest planet in our solar system) but not quite massive enough to become a star. To achieve the finding, they used a new method that
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.
