NASA has revealed a photo of Ultima Thule - the most distant object that humanity has ever explored.Read More
Astronomers have found another planet just outside our solar system, which could be in just the right spot of its star orbit to support life.Read More
A massive planet has been found more than 340 light years away, in a solar system that contains not just one sun, but three. That means this unique world experiences a sunrise and set three times every day!Read More
As you’ve probably seen, NASA has been exploring Mars for years now. But now in a potentially groundbreaking discovery, they’ve detected atomic oxygen in the Red Planet’s atmosphere for the first time in 40 years.Read More
We petitioned for a Death Star to be built this year, and while the plan was turned down, it left us all asking one simple question. What would it take to actually blow up a planet? Scott Manley looked into the science of replicating the Star Wars space station.Read More
Astronomers announced that they have found eight new exoplanets using NASA's Kepler Telescope, two of which are more Earth-like than anything they've ever seen.Read More
NASA scientists have created a study proposing humans go colonise Venus. However, since the surface of the planet has 92 times more pressure than Earth's atmosphere and a temperature of 500 degrees C, we will explore from the safe distance of the clouds using Airships and Cloud Cities.Read More
Using ESO's Very Large Telescope, astronomers have found what could prove to be the beginnings of a Gas Giant planet. Roughly 335 lightyears away, still in the swirling disc of gas and dust, it could be the world's first observable planetary formation.
Netherlands based organisation Mars One has begun accepting applications for "Mars colony pioneers:" a one-way ticket to a human settlement on the red planet, which they intend to finish construction of in 2023. Those who are chosen will be put into a selection process, in which both Mars One and viewers of a “global, televised program” will choose the first humans to colonise the planet.
Becoming the closest confirmed ‘exoplanet’ in a wider US-European competition to find the nearest and most Earth-like planets outside our own solar system, astronomers at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile have made a remarkable discovery.Read More
In space no-one can hear you scream? Maybe, but you can hear planet Earth sing with the right equipment.
