Unsettled Youth: A Chaotic Planetary System

During the infancy of our solar system, when our planets had not yet settled down into their orbits, this was a dangerous place to live. The planets wobbled and jostled around left over asteroids, comets and other debris floating in between their orbits, causing frequent collisions throughout our solar system.

Swirling Clumps of Planetary Material

Something appears to be pushing around a large clump of material that is in orbit of this star, and it's moving fast enough to make a difference in observations along a five month period.

Trigger Happy Star Formation

From recent discoveries made by two of NASA's Great Observatories comes new insight into how stars are created. Large nebula's scattered all around our galaxy, act as incubators for newborn stars to ignite and grow.

Baby Stars Found Jumbled In Galactic Center

At the center of our Milky Way galaxy is an area previously unseen by astronomers. Shrouded by clouds of swirling dusts and gases, before now our astronomers could only guess at what might lie behind this thick veil.

Cool Stars Have Different Mix of Life-Forming Chemicals

It's life, Jim, but not as we know it! Well, at least the building blocks of life. A new study from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope hints that planets around stars cooler than our sun might possess a different mix of potentially life-forming chemicals.

Exoplanet with Wild Temperature Swings

Talk about hot flashes! A planet that heats up to extreme temperatures in a matter of hours before quickly cooling back down.

Dim Dwarfs

The new record-holder for dimmest known star-like object in the universe goes to twin brown dwarfs, each of which shines feebly with only one millionth the light of our sun.

Water Hit with Young Star's Best Shot

Water is being blasted to pieces by a young star's laser-like jets, according to new observations from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. The discovery provides a better understanding of how water -- an essential ingredient for life as we know it -- is processed in emerging solar systems.
