Water Discovered in the Atmosphere of an Exoplanet

Astronomers using the Hubble space telescope have discovered water in the atmosphere of an exoplanet in its star’s habitable zone. The water was detected as vapour in the atmosphere. The planet is called K2-18b.

Curiosity confirms clay deposits on slopes of Mount Sharp on Mars

Clay often forms in the presence of water – a key ingredient for the evolution of life as it is known on Earth – and Curiosity’s latest findings add more evidence that a significant amount of water once pooled and flowed in Gale Crater on Mars.

An Astounding Amount of Water Discovered on Mars

Scientists detected a massive reservoir of frozen water sandwiched by layers of sand beneath the northern polar ice cap on Mars. This reservoir contains so much ice that, if melted and brought to the surface, it would submerge the entire planet.

Ice confirmed at the moon's poles

Using data from NASA's Moon Mineralogy Mapper instrument, scientists have identified three specific signatures that definitively prove there is water ice at the surface of the Moon.

Exoplanets may contain vast amounts of water

Scientists have shown that water is likely to be a major component of those exoplanets which are between two to four times the size of Earth. It will have implications for the search of life in our Galaxy.

NASA just announced new evidence for water plumes on Europa

Citing data collected by NASA's Galileo probe more than two decades ago, scientists report that giant jets of water are spouting more than 100 miles off Jupiter moon Eupora's surface.

The Moon's water may be widespread and immobile

If the Moon has enough water, and if it's reasonably convenient to access, future explorers might be able to use it as a resource.

Good News For The Search For Life, - The Trappist System Might Be Rich In Water

Scientists have been hard at work trying to determine the densities of the TRAPPIST-1 planets, and it looks like water is abundant in the TRAPPIST system.

We now have a complete map of Titan's surface

It's Surprisingly Like Earth. Saturn moon's three biggest puddles have a common equipotential surface – a sea level, just like our own oceans.

Vast Sheets of Ice Have Been Found on Mars

Researchers have identified eight, massive sheets of ice just below the Martian surface, and they appear to be relatively young deposits.

Hubble delivers first hints of possible water content of TRAPPIST-1 planets

The results suggest that the outer planets of the system might still harbour substantial amounts of water. This includes the three planets within the habitable zone of the star.

NASA's Cassini Finds Hidden Ocean on Saturn's Moon Dione

New gravity data from recent Cassini flybys of the giant planet suggest that Dione's crust floats on an ocean 62 miles below the surface, and may harbor microbial life.

Hubble Directly Images Possible Plumes on Europa

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope took direct ultraviolet images of the icy moon Europa transiting across the disk of Jupiter. Out of ten observations, Hubble saw what may be water vapor plumes on three of the images.

Pluto may have a 60 mile deep liquid water ocean

A prior study demonstrated that Pluto's center is sufficiently warm to bolster a fluid water sea, and now we've discovered that it may be immense - no less than 100 km (62 miles) profound.

Venus May Have Supported Life Too

Earlier in its history, the second planet from the sun may have had a liquid water ocean and temperatures suitable for life, a new study shows.
