In a distant solar system, water-soaked chunks of rock that contain two of the key elements of a habitable planet have been spotted for the first time.
The wackier a planet's wobble, the more likely it could be to sustain life and keep from going full Popsicle, according to new research.
You should't feel as alone today as you did yesterday. NASA says it has confirmed the existence of 715 new exoplanets beyond our solar system, many of them not that different from Earth in terms of size.
The planets in the habitable zone orbiting a star may be suitable for liquid water and supporting life.
How close are we to finding alien life? CNET contributor Boonsri Dickinson visits Geoff Marcy's lab at the University of California at Berkeley to hunt for Earth-like planets. Using the Keck telescope in Hawaii and data from the Kepler telescope, Marcy can detect planets millions of miles away.
In just a few days, Jupiter, Mercury, and Venus will come together in the night sky in what is known as the "Dance of the Planets."
Thought to have the potential for liquid water, the three planets are close to Gliese 667C, a star about 22 light-years from home.
NASA's Kepler space telescope has discovered new habitable planets, but don't pack up your house just yet. Plus, we take a first look at Fujitsu's FingerLink touch-based projection scanner, and Project Unity lets you play up to 18 classic video consoles in one box.
The space agency is giving up on restoring its planet-hunting spacecraft to full operational capability, but that doesn't mean the mission is over just yet.
On this week's episode, we plan our escape to a new habitable planet found by NASA and take a look at a touch-based scanner that turns paper into touch screens. Plus, Project Unity lets you play 18 classic video consoles in one box.
