A malfunction jeopardized Kepler, the space agency's best hope to find new planets. Its mission remains on hold.
NASA's planet-hunting Kepler probe has entered its lowest operational mode as NASA scientists try to determine what is wrong with it.
A five-year study of data from the Kepler space observatory has found that over half the possible planets it has identified are either eclipsing binary stars or brown dwarfs.
One of the most Earth-like planets located by the Kepler mission is uninhabitable after all, due to its very active star.
The discovery of a planet orbiting a binary star in the habitable zone is the tenth of its kind, indicating such planets are more common than previously thought.
A Chinese site is already selling the right to migrate to the planet dubbed "another Earth." Unfortunately, you probably won't survive the trip.
