An international team of astronomers says they’ve managed to take the first direct visible-light spectrum from an exoplanet, giving them a new tool to probe the nature of the "hot Jupiter" known as 51 Pegasi b.
The first exoplanet ever discovered is now the first exoplanet ever observed in visible light. 51 Pegasi B, a super Jupiter located about 50 light-years from Earth, was detected by comparing the light bouncing off its highly reflective surface to the spectral signature of its host star. It’s hoped the new technique will lead to similar discoveries. Read more...
A team of ESO astronomers working from the La Silla Observatory, Chile, has detected the first direct reflection of light from an exoplanet orbiting a Sun-like star. The exoplanet, 51 Pegasi b, is what is known as a hot Jupiter, a prevalent form of gas giant that sits much closer to its parent star than our own Jovian neighbor... Show More Summary

n the real world, peer review determines whether scientists receive funding or publish their work in scientific journals. Without positive evaluations from the members of a grant review board, a scientist won’t be able to science for very long, because she’ll be out of money when her grant proposal isn’t funded.

Perhaps because he wanted to reveal more of the back story, perhaps because of Frank Quitely's legendary turnaround times, Mark Millar has teamed with artist Wilfredo Torres for Jupiter's Circle, a ten-issue companion series to Jupiter's Legacy. Show More Summary

Launched in 1977, the twin Voyager spacecraft were sent to explore the outer planets: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Because of a unique alignment of the planets, Voyager 2 was the first spacecraft to ever make a close approach to Uranus and Neptune. Let’s take a look back at this amazing program, and see where the spacecraft are today.
Last week we talked about Jupiter and we could sense right away it would be too much to handle. This week, we'll talk about Jupiter's moons - how many are there? What makes them so interesting? Is it true that the most likely place in the solar system to find life (other than Earth) is actually on one of Jupiter's moons? Hang on tight. We're going to cover a lot.
Last week we talked about rubble, this week we're going to dig into the largest planet in the Solar System: Jupiter, but will it all just be hot gas? There's so much to talk about, we've decided to break this up into two shows. This week we're going to just talk about Jupiter, and then next week, we're going to cover its moons.
You have lived on the Earth all your life, so you'd think you know plenty about planets. As usual though, the Universe is stranger than we assume, and the planets orbiting other stars defy our expectations. Gigantic super-Jupiters whirling...Show More Summary
