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 exoplanets mimicking signs of life when there is none?

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.
