NASA: Searching for Alien Planets Far From Their Host Star

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and the W.M. Keck Observatory in Hawaii have made independent confirmations of an exoplanet orbiting far from its central star. The planet was discovered through a technique called gravitational microlensing. This finding opens a new piece...

NASA space telescope discovers Earth's closest rocky neighbor

NASA researchers working with the Spitzer Space Telescope announced on Thursday that they had indeed found the closest rocky exoplanet to our own. It's a tiny burg called HD 219134b that's just 21 light years from Earth in the Cassiopeia constellation, near the North Star. Show More Summary

NASA: "The Rosetta Stone for Super-Earths?"

Using NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, astronomers have confirmed the discovery of the nearest rocky planet outside our solar system, larger than Earth and a potential gold mine of science data. Dubbed HD 219134b, this exoplanet, which orbits too close to...

Take a Trip Through the Brain: New Imaging Tool

A new imaging tool could do for the brain what the telescope did for space exploration. In the first demonstration of how the technology works, the researchers look inside the brain of an adult mouse at a scale previously unachievable, generating images at a nanoscale resolution. Show More Summary

Stormy seas in Sagittarius

Some of the most breathtaking views in the Universe are created by nebulae -- hot, glowing clouds of gas. This new NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image shows the center of the Lagoon Nebula, an object with a deceptively tranquil name. Show More Summary

Giant Planet-Like Brown Dwarfs --"Harbor Powerful, Pulsing Auroras"

By observing a brown dwarf 20 light-years away using both radio and optical telescopes, a team led by Gregg Hallinan, assistant professor of astronomy at Caltech, has found another feature that makes these so-called failed stars more like supersized planets--they...

'Failed stars' host powerful auroral displays

By observing a brown dwarf 20 light-years away using both radio and optical telescopes, astronomers have found that such so-called failed stars host powerful auroras near their magnetic poles -- additional evidence that brown dwarfs are more like giant planets than small stars.

Clusters of living worlds would hint life came from outer space

Using future telescopes to map exoplanets where life may exist could help test the panspermia theory - that life can cross space and take root on new worlds

Celestron Launches Official National Park Foundation Product Line to Encourage Americans to Explore the Outdoors

Found! "The Missing Piece in a Long-Standing Milky Way Puzzle"

The lack of lithium in older stars is a long-standing puzzle. Lithium has now been found for the first time in material ejected by a nova. Observations of Nova Centauri 2013 made using telescopes at ESO's La Silla Observatory, and.....

First detection of lithium from an exploding star

The chemical element lithium has been found for the first time in material ejected by a nova. Observations of Nova Centauri 2013 made using telescopes at ESO's La Silla Observatory, and near Santiago in Chile, help to explain the mystery of why many young stars seem to have more of this chemical element than expected.
