Illustration of an alien technological planet. The planet is in orbit around a red dwarf star, the most common type. The red dwarf is relatively sedate, making the environment of its habitable zone conducive to life. The planet is shown with its night side brilliantly lit by major cities and technology.Illustration of an alien technological planet.

SDSS 1557 is a binary star system, 1000 light-years away, consisting of a white dwarf orbiting a brown dwarf, Astronomers have found that the system is surrounded by a narrow disc or ring rich in rocky and metallic elements, which they suggest are in the process of coming together (accreting) to form new planets It's the first time evidence of rocky planet formation has been seen in a binary star systemSDSS 1557 is a binary star system, 1000 light-years away, consisting of a white dwarf orbiting a brown dwarf, Astronomers have found that the system is surrounded by a narrow disc or ring rich in rocky and metallic elements, which they suggest are in the process of coming together (accreting) to form new planets It's the first time evidence of rocky planet formation has been seen in a binary star system

Illustration of a red dwarf star seen from the surface of an orbiting world. Red dwarfs are the most common stars in the universe. Like the Sun they are main-sequence stars, burning hydrogen, but substantially cooler, dimmer; redder and smaller. Proxima Centauri and Barnard's Star are well-known examples. This planet is depicted as having a magnetic field, which creates aurorae in its skies as on Earth.Illustration of a red dwarf star seen from the surface of an orbiting world.

Illustration of a view of Pluto seen from the surface of its largest moon Charon. Because Pluto and Charon are tidally locked, they keep the same face towards each other at all times, as the Moon does to the Earth. So if one stood on Charon (or Pluto) the other world would stay fixed in the sky - never setting or rising, but still cycling through its phases. And if one were on the wrong hemisphere of Pluto (or Charon) one would never see the other world.Illustration of a view of Pluto seen from the surface of its largest moon Charon.

Illustration of the Earth, Moon and Sun showing a passing comet. Cities are seen glistening, defining the edges of the Earth's continents. Comets are balls of loosely packed 'dirty ice'. As they near the Sun, their gases sublimate and form long tails blustering away from the star. The tails can stretch for tens of thousands of kilometres, dwarfing even the Earth-Moon separation.Illustration of the Earth, Moon and Sun showing a passing comet.
