How does gravity tell us about the winds in a planet’s atmosphere? Read on to find out!
Our gas giants spin slower than one might expect. Turns out gas giants outside of our solar system are also slower than originally what we might have thought! Today’s astrobite answers the question: What’s up with dat?
Most Jupiter-like exoplanets go undetected. But do they leave a mark on the more easily detectable inner terrestrial worlds?
The absence of dusty circumplanetary disks around young giant planets suggests moonetesimals grow relatively quickly.
Earlier this year, JAXA landed a spacecraft on an asteroid — one that can hopefully tell us about the solar system’s past, and how life on Earth came to be.
Interplanetary collisions can explain a number of phenomena in our own solar system — here’s evidence of such a crash shaping the formation of two distant planets. Translate from an Astrobitos bite by Elena Gonzales Egea.
