Venus and Jupiter are on what looks like a collision source in the night sky, in a rare otherworldly event. The two planets have been inching closer to one another every day this month. If you looked up at the sky this morning, you may have noticed what appeared to be two bright stars close to one another. Chances... Read more...
A group of Stanford researchers may have found a potential commonality between Jupiter's moon, Europa, and Earth's own Greenland. Ice-penetrating radar from Greenland suggests this shared feature with Europa could increase the potential for life on the icy Jovian moon. Scientists have long thought that Europa could...

In two new studies, Hubble astronomers have identified freakish weather conditions on two Jupiter-sized exoplanets. On one planet it is raining vaporized rock, while on another its upper atmosphere is getting hotter rather than cooler. When temperatures here on Earth begin reaching 90 degrees Fahrenheit and above... Read more...
NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has captured evidence of a Jupiter-like protoplanet forming through an “intense and violent” process. The discovery seems to support a highly argued theory for how a planet like Jupiter forms, called “disk instability.” Planets are created from material that originated in a... Read more...
A video shared by NASA on its Instagram page for National Pizza Day has gone viral for the most delicious reason. The video is from NASA's Juno mission, and showcases what cyclones look like in infrared on the giant gas planet. NASA's Juno mission has been sending back some interesting pictures of Jupiter, which... Read more...
NASA's NuSTAR space observatory revealed the highest-energy light ever detected from Jupiter, solving a 30-year old mystery in the process. The Ulysses mission did not detect the high-energy light, as it flew by the planet back in 1992 and it left researchers scratching their heads as to why. Up close studies by... Read more...
Sounds sent back from NASA's Juno probe as it passes Jupiter's moon Ganymede has the eerie feeling of something right out of a science fiction flick. New pictures of Jupiter also has NASA comparing its atmosphere and oceans with Earth's. NASA has its hands full lately with all its missions and information that is... Read more...
Observing an asteroid entering into the atmosphere of the behemoth planet of Jupiter typically occurs once every two years. However, astronomers have spotted two different asteroids slamming into Jupiter in the months of September and October alone. Asteroids have been in our news headlines as of late as NASA...

NASA is always on the lookout for signs of life beyond Earth and new planets it could exist on. Astronomers at NASA's Chandra X-Ray Observatory may have discovered a new planet the size of Saturn in another galaxy (far, far away). NASA has recently been crunching new data coming in from its probe Juno currently... Read more...
NASA's Juno probe has been beaming back some very interesting pictures as of late. The pictures have been giving scientists more insight into the atmosphere of Jupiter as well as the planet's Great Red Spot. Before NASA begins its Artemis program early next year, it is going through all the new data that is being... Read more...
You don't find many people clamoring for satellite broadband service, which is typically reserved for those living in the boonies or any other locale where cable and/or DSL aren't options. That's because broadband satellite service pretty much sucks. The cheapest tier HughesNet offers runs $60/month, and all that gets you is 1Mbps downstream... Read more...
