Don’t Forget F-type Stars In The Search For Life
2014-03-27 13:19:34

Scientists searching for habitable planets beyond Earth shouldn’t overlook F-type stars in favor of their more abundant, smaller and cooler cousins, according to new research from University of Texas at Arlington physicists.

The holy grail of planetary astronomy is the search for a potentially habitable planet, or even better, one that is shown to already contain life.

Superhabitable Exoplanet

A new paper argues that some planetary bodies may hold 'superhabitable' environments even more suitable for life than those found here on Earth.

How Many Habitable Exoplanets Exist

Scientists debate the criteria for trying to determine what makes a planet habitable and how many exoplanets there are out there.

In The Hunt For Habitable Planets, A New Model May Be Key
2013-11-14 13:54:41

Researchers using new theoretical models have created a new method to simplify the search for Earth-like planets. The new models help rule out the possibility of Earth-like conditions on certain planets outside of our solar system.

Alien Worlds: How Common Are Habitable Planets?
2013-11-05 02:51:36

New statistical analysis of data obtained by NASA’s now-retired Kepler spacecraft has revealed that one out of every five sun-like stars have at least one Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone.

Exoplanet With Water-Rich Atmosphere

The search for a habitable planet beyond Earth is on. And with new techniques emerging, we are able to characterize the atmospheres of these planets more fully.

Complex Origins Of Solar Systems
2013-07-25 11:12:46

Research has led to a new theory that may explain the complex and differentiated origins of solar systems.

Hunting For Exoplanets
2013-07-19 10:34:45

The hunt is on for planets that, like Earth, have the conditions necessary for life to survive on their surfaces. But what exactly are scientists looking for? Earlier this week, NASA officials shed a little light on precisely what conditions they are seeking on worlds located beyond our solar system.

What Really Makes A Habitable Planet?
2013-05-04 05:41:48

The Holy Grail in the search for planets outside our solar system is finding one that could potentially support life. But theoretical physicist Sara Seager from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology argues perhaps we are being too restrictive on what habitable planets could possibly look like.

Image Caption: Artistic concept of a planetary system. Credit: Wikipedia/NASA/JPL-Caltech The term Astronomy encompasses a broad range of topics, including the study of stars, galaxies, and planets. In order to focus on the different areas of study, many subfields of astronomy emerge. One such area is the study of planets known, appropriately, as Planetary Astronomy. Observational Planetary Astronomy Even within the field of Planetary Astronomy, there are several divisions to...
