Simulations by astronomers at Columbia University suggest an evaporating exomoon could be behind the mysterious dimming behaviour of KIC 8462852.
New research by astronomers at Cornell’s Carl Sagan Institute uncovers a novel way to search for the existence of life in the Universe. Flares from red dwarf stars, commonly believed to pose serious problems for habitability, might actually expose hidden biospheres through the process of biofluorescence.
Observations from Hubble and Spitzer bring us one step closer to understanding the atmospheric compositions of intermediate-mass exoplanets.
Visions of the future: A planetary fragment orbiting a long dead star offers a glimpse of the Solar System’s fate
Astronomers discover a planetary fragment that survived the destruction of its host star – offering insights into the future of planetary systems like our own.
A combination of infrared spectrograph and laser frequency comb provides unprecedented precisions in the hunt for habitable planets around nearby, cool stars.
