Hot Topic Deep Space New Planets
Lonely Jupiters
Topic: New Planets
New research shows that 'hot Jupiter-type' planets may be alone in the systems that support them. The study indicates that giant planets would wreak havoc on any other planets forming in the inner regions of a solar system.

ALMA Reveals Nearby Planetary System
Topic: New Planets
A new observatory, which is still under construction, has already provided a major breakthrough in understanding a nearby planetary system.

Nearby Star May Have 9 Planets
Topic: New Planets
A new analysis shows that the star HD 10180 may be at the center of a solar system with nine planets. HD 10180 is similar to the Sun in mass, temperature, brightness, and chemical content.

Getting to Know the Goldilocks Planet
Topic: New Planets
Kepler has revealed an astounding variety of planets around distant stars. How long will it be before we identify a 'Goldilocks planet' - a truly Earth-like world orbiting its star at the right distance for liquid water and life.

Forecasting Exoplanet Atmospheres and Space Weather for Earth
Topic: New Planets
Climate models used by the United Kingdom Met Office to study Earth's weather are now being adapted to help scientists understand space weather and the atmospheres of extrasolar planets.

A Planetary System from the Early Universe
Topic: New Planets
Astronomers have discovered an ancient planetary system that could be a survivor from 13 billion years ago.

Billions of Habitable Zone Rocky Planets Could be Orbiting Red Dwarf Stars
Topic: New Planets
New research shows that rocky planets not much bigger than Earth could be very common in the habitable zones of faint, red stars.

Super Earth Unlikely to Transfer Life
Topic: New Planets
The "super-Earth" planet in the Gliese 581 system may be suitable for life as we know it. However, a new study shows that it is unlikely that life on this planet could be transferred to other planets in the Gliese 581 system.

Star-Combing for Earth-Like Planets
Topic: New Planets
Scientists are studying how a new laser frequency comb might boost the search for Earth-like planets. The comb precisely measures frequencies of light and has been used for the first time to calibrate measurements of starlight from distant stars.

Kepler Catalog Adds More Planet Candidates
Topic: New Planets
The Kepler team has released the third catalog of transiting planet candidates. The new catalog contains 1,091 candidates, including some that could be smaller than twice the size of Earth. Kepler has now identified well over 200 Earth-size planet candidates.
