As time has gone by and new techniques for spotting planets beyond the boundaries of our solar system have advanced, the amount of such "exoplanets" that we've found has risen at a staggering pace—to the point that we've gotten kind of desensitized to it. That's what makes this new announcement from NASA so exciting; they've made an exoplanet discovery worth its own press event.

New work from Carnegie's Stephen Elardo and Anat Shahar shows that interactions between iron and nickel under the extreme pressures and temperatures similar to a planetary interior can help scientists understand the period in our Solar System's youth when planets were forming and their cores were created. Their findings are published by Nature Geoscience.
It is one of humankind’s greatest achievements. More than 12 billion miles away a tiny spaceship is leaving our Solar System and entering the void of deep space – the first human-made object ever to do so. Slowly dying within its heart is a nuclear generator that will beat for perhaps another decade before the… Read More The post The Farthest appeared first on The Big Picture.

Astronomers think there's an undiscovered planet lurking in the far reaches of the solar system, and they're asking the public's help to find it.
Pluto, the icy object at the end of our solar system, has endured a rocky road since it was discovered in 1930. From its honorable designation as the ninth planet to its demotion to a dwarf a decade ago, Pluto is no longer an elite member of the planetary family. Saturday marks the 87th anniversary...
