Hot Topic Deep Space New Planets
Plentiful Planet Population
Topic: New Planets
New research indicates that planets around stars are the rule rather than the exception in our galaxy. If planets are common in the Milky Way, it could increase the likelihood that habitable worlds exist somewhere beyond our own solar system.

Searching for Tatooine in the Kepler 16 System
Topic: New Planets
Astrophysicists have suggested where an Earth-type planet could exist in the two-star, Kepler-16 System.

Signs of Planets in Dusty Ring
Topic: New Planets
With help from the Subaru telescope, researchers are gaining a new understanding of the links between dusty disks and planet formation. The data could aid in the search for new worlds around distant stars.

Astrobiology Top 10: Kepler's Haul of Multiple-Planet Systems
Topic: New Planets
Astrobiology Magazine is highlighting the top 10 stories of 2011. At number two, within just four months of data from NASA's Kepler mission, astronomers find evidence for more than 1,200 planetary candidates. Of those, 408 reside in systems with two or more planets. (Originally published 05/24/2011)

Astronomers Discover Deep Fried Planets
Topic: New Planets
Two Earth-sized planets have been discovered around a dying star that has passed the red giant stage. This discovery, published in the science journal Nature, may shed new light on the destiny of stellar and planetary systems, including our solar system.

Kepler Finds Two Earth-Sized Planets Orbiting Sun-Like Star
Topic: New Planets
NASA's Kepler mission has discovered two Earth-size planets orbiting a distant star. The planets are too close to their sun to be in its 'habitable zone,' but they are they smallest exoplanets ever confirmed around a sun-like star.

SuperEarths Made of Diamond
Topic: New Planets
A new study suggests that terrestrial planets containing up to 50 percent diamond could exist in the Milky Way. However, such planets would not provide habitats for life as we know it.

Kepler Confirms ExoPlanet in a Habitable Zone
Topic: New Planets
Kepler has confirmed its first planet orbiting in the habitable zone of its parent star. The planet, Kepler-22b, is the smallest yet found to orbit in this region around a star similar to our sun.

Kepler Confirma Exoplaneta em uma Zona Habitável
Topic: New Planets
Kepler confirmou seu primeiro planeta rochoso orbitando na zona habitável de sua estrela parental. O planeta, Kepler 22-b, é o menor já encontrado a orbitar nesta região ao redor de uma estrela similar ao nosso Sol.

A Habitable Exoplanets Catalog
Topic: New Planets
The Planetary Habitability Laboratory has created the Habitable Exoplanets Catalog, which assesses the habitability of exoplanets with the right size and orbit to be considered suitable for life.
