Scientists are hopeful that the interstellar dust grains gathered by the NASA Stardust spacecraft and brought back to Earth will help in better understanding the complexities of the solar system`s formation.
In the first analysis of space dust sent to earth by NASA`s Stardust mission, physicists suggest that the tiny specks, which likely originated from beyond our solar system, are more complex in composition and structure than previously imagined.
Scientists have experimentally re-created the conditions that endure deep inside the giant planets like Jupiter, Uranus and many of the planets recently discovered outside our solar system with the help of very powerful laser.
In what could lead to better understanding of how giant planets form, researchers have experimentally recreated the conditions that exist deep inside giant planets, such as Jupiter, Uranus and many other planets recently discovered outside the solar system.
A team of astronomers using NASA`s Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) to survey more than 170,000 supermassive black holes have now decided to re-examine a decades-old theory about the varying appearances of these interstellar objects.
Are astronomers being fooled by signs of life on exoplanets? This may well be the case if we believe a significant research, suggesting that the search for life on planets outside our solar system may be more difficult than previously thought.
In a new research, scientists have estimated the birth date of Moon to 4.470 billion years. It means that our planet`s only natural satellite was formed some 4.470 billion years, nearly 100 million years after the start of the solar system.
