New Jupiter-sized exoplanet discovered with TESS

Using NASA's Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), astronomers from the Pennsylvania State University (PSU) and elsewhere have detected a new Jupiter-sized extrasolar world. The newfound exoplanet, designated TOI-3757 ...

Hot Earth-sized exoplanet detected with TESS

Using NASA's Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), an international team of astronomers has discovered a new Earth-sized planet orbiting a nearby star. The newly found alien world, designated GJ 3929 b, is slightly ...

New planet detected around star closest to the sun

A team of astronomers using the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope (ESO's VLT) in Chile have found evidence of another planet orbiting Proxima Centauri, the closest star to our Solar System. This candidate ...

Possible chemical leftovers from early Earth sit near the core

Let's take a journey into the depths of the Earth, down through the crust and mantle nearly to the core. We'll use seismic waves to show the way, since they echo through the planet following an earthquake and reveal its internal ...

Two exoplanets orbiting a sun-like star discovered

An international team of astronomers reports the detection of two new exoplanets orbiting an evolved sun-like star known as HD 137496. The newly found extrasolar worlds, identified using NASA's Kepler spacecraft, were classified ...

Seismology: A promising tool for monitoring permafrost

The warming and thawing of permafrost in response to rising temperatures are increasingly destabilizing rock slopes, causing more occurrences of rockfall in recent years. This trend is expected to continue, raising concerns ...

Searching for Earth 2.0? Zoom in on a star
