A new trove of free-floating planets, smaller and paired up more than expected, challenges stellar and planet formation models.
Unprecedented images reveal how Saturn’s atmosphere is evolving as summertime winds down in its northern hemisphere.
Лабораторные эксперименты позволили воссоздать тонкие ледяные пьедесталы, поддерживающие некоторые горные породы в природе, и выяснить, что сублимация играет ключевую роль в формировании этих редких и красивых структур.
A close approach to Deimos reveals that its surface does not look like that of an asteroid, hinting at a Martian origin.
The shape of radiative cooling in lower atmosphere is controlled by the lapse rate in the water vapor path according to a new theory and observations from subsidence regimes in the tropical Atlantic.
In solar systems beyond our own, some moons might eventually collide with their host planets, new simulations suggest.
The first flights of a helicopter on another planet are used to study dust lifting and mobilization in Jezero Crater, Mars.
New observations of the Venusian atmosphere collected from an airborne observatory showed no sign of the potential biosignature gas, casting additional doubt on a previous report of its detection.
Infrared observations reveal that Jupiter’s upper atmosphere is much warmer than models predict. The discovery may be a clue to finding missing heat sources in other giant planets.
A new method, nano-FTIR, is used to examine microstructures and processes on grains, displaying its benefit for examining asteroid returned samples through a meteorite.
