Scientists have solved the centuries-old unexplained mystery of "bright nights", the unusual glow that appears in the sky after dark and lets observers see distant mountains.
NASA's Kepler space telescope has spotted 219 potentially new planets, among which at least 10 are in the habitable zone, nearly about the same size as the Earth with conditions suitable to host life.
Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM), ISRO’s maiden interplanetary mission has completed 1000 Earth days in its orbit, well beyond its designed mission life of six months.
NASA posthumously awarded the Exceptional Public Service Medal to Michael A’Hearn, one of the world’s leading comet scientists, for his fundamental work on comets and small bodies of the solar system.
ISRO is set to launch India’s heaviest rocket, ‘fat boy’, which will be capable of carrying the heaviest satellites and even manned missions to space.
Astronomers have created the first largest map of the universe, solely using the positions of quasars that are incredibly bright and distant points of light.
Researchers in NASA have detected signs of strong water signature on the distant Neptune-sized planet, which is relatively clear of clouds.
China is preparing to send men to live on the moon by testing out its space cabin in Beijing. The cabin has an advanced life support system

Scientists have found evidence of a second great spot on Jupiter. The newly discovered spot is much higher up and cooler that the surroundings.
Researchers have discovered ingredients on the moons of Saturn and Jupiter that reveal that they may have a habitable environment.
Astronomers have discovered a new planet, which could possibly be a twin of Venus in our solar system. The planet was found closely orbiting a dim star.
Although there is no possibility for the asteroid to collide with Earth, this will be a very close approach for an asteroid of this size.
Scientists have discovered atmosphere around a planet that is close to Earth’s size. The atmosphere is likely to be rich in water vapour or methane.
NASA has extended veteran astronaut Peggy Whitson’s stay on the International Space station by three months. This would give the scientists a chance to study the changes in Whitson’s body and add to the existing information collected from Scott Kelly’s one-year long stay in space.
Scientists recently used a new technique -X-ray binary star system-to detect orbiting exoplanets.
The Australian National University has invited everyday stargazers to join their search for ‘Planet 9’. The university is confident that the planet’s discovery would help make Pluto’s weird orbit more sense.
