NASA's TESS mission cleared for next development phase
Boston MA (SPX) Nov 12, 2014
NASA has officially confirmed the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) mission, clearing it to move forward into the development phase. This marks a significant step for the TESS mission, which would search the entire sky for planets outside our solar system, known as exoplanets. Designed as the first all-sky survey, TESS would spend two years of an overall three-year funded science mission searching both hemispheres of the sky for nearby exoplanets. "This is an incredibly exciting t ... read more

Distant planet's atmosphere shows evidence of water vapor
A Neptune-sized exoplanet, which lies some 729 trillion miles away (122 light-years), has water vapor in its atmosphere. While it's a promising sign for astronomers in search of distant life, exoplanet HAT-P-11b with its water-filled atmosphere is not the kind of place you'd want to live - or where anything could live. ... more
