Member countries of IAU have been assigned one exoplanet and star it orbits for the naming process.
This new theory explains why astronomers have not been able to find exomoons along with exoplanets.
The telescopes were pointed to the exoplanet to study 12 transits & 20 eclipses around its home star.
The technique proposed in the study opens doors to discovering 100+ small exoplanets from existing data.
Life may be evolving on Earth-like planets orbiting in the habitable zone of some of our closest stars.
The newly-discovered exoplanet is orbits the fastest moving star in our night sky: Researchers.
The recent discovery of giant exoplanet Keplar 1625b may offer evidence for the 'moonmoon' theory.
Researchers found that ‘Planet X’ is plausible based on simulations, but what does that validate?
This image captures a wealth of stars and other objects, including systems known to have exoplanets.
The new research indicates that many of the known planets may contain as much as 50 percent water.
Scientists have identified more than 3,500 planets around other stars (called exoplanets).
Astronomers are eager to study gas giant exoplanet Wasp-127b, which is thought to be filled with metals, and maybe even water: Report
According to a team of astronomers in the University of Cambridge and IAC, in Spain, the exoplanet, WASP-127b has shown possible signs of Water.
NASA's TESS spacecraft is expected to lift off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station at 6:32 pm Eastern Time which is 4:02 am (Tuesday) in India.
Year in review: A comprehensive guide to everything that happened in the fields of space and astronomy in 2017
2017 was a great year for anyone interested in space and astronomy featuring several groundbreaking discoveries and heart-wrenching goodbyes
While studying K2-18b the researchers also located another planet which was in the same solar system called as K2-18c.
The planet, which is around 325 light years away from the Earth was being observed as part of a survey to identify exoplanets with stratospheres.
The density of the planet is also similar to Earth, suggesting that it, too, is rocky.
University of Oxford researchers use principles of evolutionary biology to figure out what aliens could look like
The research supports the idea that extra terrestrial life goes through the process of natural selection, and evolve over time to be fitter and stronger.
Astronomers discover unusually large gas giant that challenges the conventional theories of planet formation
The exoplanet is about 600 light years away, has been given the designation of NTGS-1b, and belongs to a category of stars known as Hot Jupiters.
These Hubble observations are the first detections of this "snow-out" process, called a "cold trap," on an exoplanet, researchers said.
