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.
Researchers at the California Institute of Technology have found that our solar system may have once harboured super-earths - planets larger than the Earth but smaller than Neptune.
After analysing satellite data, an international team of researchers have calculated the probability for the number of stars in the Milky Way that might have planets in the habitable zone.
Black hole collisions has provided a deeper insight into the most energetic event in universe, the merging of two spinning, orbiting black holes into a much larger black hole, for first time ever.
Physicists from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) are offering a possible solution to the mystery of the origin of matter in the universe.
A new research has offered a possible solution to the mystery of the origin of matter in the universe.
A small satellite, named 'Twinkle,' is set to give radical new insights into the chemistry, formation and evolution of planets orbiting other stars.
A new study has recently revealed that transformation of inhabitable mini-Neptune into Earth-like world maybe possible.
Researchers have recently re-created the planet formations, conditions deep inside exotic super-Earths and giant planet cores in the lab with the help of lasers.
The solar system has at least two more planets waiting to be discovered beyond the orbit of Pluto, Spanish and British astronomers say.
NASA's Kepler space telescope has discovered a star with three planets only slightly larger than Earth.
A recent study has revealed that there can be at least two unknown planets hidden well beyond Pluto.
NASA's venerable Kepler space telescope's count of exoplanets has passed the magic 1,000 mark, including eight new planets and 544 candidate planets.
NASA researchers have pinpointed the exact position of Saturn and its family of moons to within about four km - a feat that will improve astronomers' knowledge of Saturn's orbit and benefits spacecraft navigation and basic physics research.
Five planets transiting a larger primary star about 117 light years from Earth may constitute the oldest known system of terrestrial-sized planets, scientists say.
A new study has recently revealed that exoplanets, whose axis is tilted, may still be habitable if they are covered in oceans.
Astronomers may soon be able to find exoplanets that are stretched out by the gravity of the stars they orbit.
Recreating isotopes that result when a star explodes can help physicists understand where life-supporting elements may be found in space, new research led by Indian-origin student Zena Patel shows.
An entire family of Pluto-size objects may be swarming around the star known as HD 107146, an adolescent version of our own Sun, says a study.
