A new search of NASA's Kepler space telescope archive has uncovered a vampire star system undergoing super-outburst. Crafted to search for exoplanets, the spacecraft sometimes spots other objects that brighten or dim. The newly-discovered star system consists of…
Kepler space telescope has spotted an unusual dip in a distant star's glow which might be caused by a massive cloud of comets orbiting the star.Kepler telescope has been observing the same patch of sky for four years, searching for stars immersed in a bright glow.
In a continuing hunt for Earth-like planets, NASA’s Kepler space telescope recently announced the discovery of four potential new planets in their Sun’s “habitable zone” among 461 planet candidates discovered by the telescope. These four potential new planets are
NASA’s Kepler mission has discovered first multi-planet solar system orbiting two stars named Kepler-47, which resembles the kind of solar system with two Sun(s) depicted in star wars. It is known as circumbinary planetary system and is 4900 light years away in the
Buried in the flood of data from the Kepler telescope is a planetary system unlike any seen before. Two of its apparent planets share the same orbit around their star. If the discovery is confirmed, it would bolster a theory that Earth once shared its orbit with a
