First classified a planet, then an asteroid and then a "dwarf planet" with some traits of a moon -- the more scientists learn about Ceres, the weirder it becomes.
Jupiter may have swept through the early solar system like a wrecking ball, destroying any newly-formed super-Earths by driving them into the Sun, a new study has found.
In an interesting finding, researchers have detected features around minor planet Chiron that may signal rings, jets, or a shell of dust.
Jupiter`s largest moon, Ganymede, has an underground ocean that contains more water than Earth`s, broadening the hunt for places in the solar system where life might be able to exist.
A NASA spacecraft is preparing to rendezvous with the largest object in the asteroid belt located between Mars and Jupiter.
There's not one, but two bright spots on dwarf planet Ceres, scientists have found.
Astronomers have observed Jupiter for centuries but a new study that looks at the gas giant as if it was an exoplanet could help make more reliable interpretations of Jupiter.

Planetary scientists are considering firing a swarm of tiny probes - each with a different sensor - into the clouds of Jupiter and grab data as they fall before burning up in the giant planet's atmosphere.
A fresh look at data collected by NASA's Cassini spacecraft during its 2001 flyby of Jupiter shows that its moon Europa's tenuous atmosphere is even thinner than previously thought.
Scientists have recently developed a new method that can help in estimating magnetic field of a distant exoplanet.
A new "remastered" image of Jupiter's moon Europa has made it look like the beginning of life itself - an embryo.
Scientists have found that like Earth, Mars too has macro weather, a regime which is used to described the relatively stable regime between weather and climate.
An active asteroid in our solar system's main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, has a comet like tail, a research says.
The ruddy colour of Jupiter's famous Great Red Spot is likely a product of simple chemicals being broken apart by sunlight in the planet's upper atmosphere, NASA researchers have said.
