Our closest neighbor star is a bare cosmic ember. It’s much lighter and smaller than the Sun, and less than one ten-thousandth as bright. Yet the star produces giant explosions that are much more powerful than anything ever seen from the Sun. An outburst two years ago, in fact, was the brightest from any star at some wavelengths. Proxima Centauri i…
 
Is there any point in ‘Nuking' Mars? In a word, no. The idea, famously championed by Elon Musk is that we should drop thermonuclear bombs on Mars poles, releasing large volumes of water vapour and carbon dioxide, which will bulk out Mars exceedingly thin atmosphere – and since both water and CO2 are greenhouse gases they should warm up the planet. …

Jupiter and Saturn are the largest planets in the solar system. Jupiter is about 11 times the diameter of Earth, while Saturn is almost 10 times Earth’s diameter. Despite their size, though, they spin faster than any other planets — 10 hours for Jupiter, a bit longer for Saturn. That’s compared to 24 hours for Earth. You might wonder why these gian…

As a child, I was tasked with chores to help keep the house in order, none of which I dreaded more than dusting. It seemed a Sisyphean punishment - tenacious, sneeze-inducing; dust always returned no matter how hard I tried to eradicate it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dW7enC5os_w There are few places in the Solar System which are as fascinating as Saturn’s moon Titan. It’s a world with a thicker atmosphere than Earth. Where it’s so cold that it rains ammonia, forming lakes, rivers and seas. Where water ice forms mountains. Like Europa and Encleadus, Titan could have an interior oc…
 
Using ALMA, a team of astronomers have unambiguously detected a moon-forming disc around a distant planet for the first time. The planet is a Jupiter-like gas giant, hosted in a system still in the process of being formed. The result promises to shed new light on how moons and planets form in young stellar systems. This video summarises the discove…

Using data collected by NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope, scientists have found four free-floating, or rogue, planets near the core of the Milky Way. These planets formed in discs in other planetary systems and were thrown out by gravitational interactions with larger planets. Plus, the early solar system, including ancient Earth, Jupiter’s chemistry,…
