A new study identified 37 recently active volcanic structures on Venus. The study provides some of the best evidence yet that Venus is still a geologically active planet.
A recent study shows that Titan is drifting further and further from Saturn. And the rate at which it’s drifting is 100 times faster than expected. This suggests that Titan has been migrating to its current distance for 4.5 bil years.
The surface of Jupiter's moon Europa features a widely varied landscape, including ridges, bands, small rounded domes and disrupted spaces that geologists call "chaos terrain."
4 billion year old Nitrogen containing organic molecules has been discovered in Martian meteorites. This finding suggests a wet and organic-rich early Mars, which could have been habitable and favorable for life to start.
Mercury, the closest planet to the Sun, is one of the last places we think about when considering the potential for life in the solar system. New research suggests the planet's interior once contained the basic ingredients for life.
The planet’s extreme daytime heat combined with the super-cold (minus 200-degree Celsius) temperatures in the permanently shadowed craters might be acting like an “ice-making chemistry lab.”
Astronomers have released a catalog of 316 trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs) - minor planets located in the far reaches of the Solar System - detected from the first four years of the Dark Energy Survey.
A NASA-supplied Atlas 5 rocket launched the European Space Agency’s Solar Orbiter spacecraft 9 February, kicking off an innovative mission to study the Sun in unprecedented detail, complementing close-in observations by NASA’s Parker Solar Probe.
The Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST) recently took its first image which reveals an unprecedented level of details. These images provide a close-up view of the turbulent plasma arranged in a pattern of cell-like structures.
