Illustration of the planet Kepler 1625b and its proposed exomoon. Kepler 1625 is a Sun-like star some 4,000 light-years distant in Cygnus. It is about 80 percent of the radius of the Sun but about 8 percent more massive. The star has at least one known planet. Called Kepler 1625b, it is a large gas giant, up to 12 times the diameter of Jupiter and orbiting within the star's habitable zone. In 2018, astronomers reported that the planet might be orbited by a satellite - an exomoon - although this remains to be confirmed. The suspected moon is Neptunian in size, orbiting its planet at a distance of 20 times the planet's radius.Illustration of the planet Kepler 1625b and its proposed exomoon.

Illustration of a free-floating planet. These planets are odd in that, unlike most extra solar objects, they do not seem to be in orbit around a star - they are free-floating planets drifting between the stars and galaxies. Free floating planets such as these may result from being ejected from a protoplanetary disc due to gravitational perturbations from other massive objects. This planet has cloud bands like those of the gas giant Jupiter.Illustration of a free-floating planet.

Illustration of the triple star system HD 131399, as seen from a planet. The system consists of a close binary pair of low-mass, red stars, separated by about 10 astronomical units (AU), which is in turn in orbit around a more massive, white main-sequence star at a distance of several hundred AU. Astronomers thought they detected a planet around the more massive star, HD 131399 A. However, the so-called planet, dubbed HD 131399 Ab or Scorpion-1b, is now thought to be a background star. This image imagines the supposed planet viewed from a nearby moon.Illustration of the triple star system HD 131399, as seen from a planet.

Illustration comparing the size of Earth (left) with the planet Uranus. Uranus is the seventh planet from the Sun, with an average distance from it of 19.2 times the Earth-Sun distance. A fluid world of mostly hydrogen and helium, it is rich in ices of methane, water and ammonia, causing some astronomers to label it (along with Neptune) an ice giant. With a diameter of four times that of the Earth, Uranus is the Solar System's third largest planet (after Jupiter and Saturn).Illustration comparing the size of Earth (left) with the planet Uranus.

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.

This is the view looking west towards Central America from Colombia. The ring is casting a shadow.Illustration of the Earth with a ring.

Illustration of the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS). TESS was launched by NASA in April 2018, the successor to Kepler. It has a two-year mission, during which it will be hunting for extra solar planets transiting their stars. It is expected to find around 20000 planets. At the time of its launch, 3800 exoplanet were known.Illustration of the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS). TESS was launched by NASA in April 2018, the successor to Kepler.

Illustration of the blue giant star HD 37974, in the Large Magellanic Cloud. Astronomers suspect that it is surrounded by a dusty disc, stretching for 60 times the distance of Pluto's orbit from the Sun (about 3,000 astronomical units, or AU). The disc could be a remnant from planet formation, or the beginning of the planet-creation process.Illustration of the blue giant star HD 37974, in the Large Magellanic Cloud.

Illustration of the formation of a gas giant planet. The planet is in the center, still growing. A concentric disc surrounds it, inside of which the natural satellites are forming via the process of accretion. The Sun is at the top, itself still contracting.Illustration of the formation of a gas giant planet. The planet is in the center, still growing.

Diagram showing the theoretical interior of the gas giant planet Jupiter. At the center there is probably a rocky and icy core several times the mass of the Earth. This is surrounded by an extensive inner mantle, more than two-thirds of the planet's total radius, of liquid metallic hydrogen under great pressure. On top of this is the shell of helium-neon 'rain'. Then comes the outer mantle, a layer of liquid molecular hydrogen and helium. And finally comes an extensive hydrogen-helium atmosphere about 1000 km thick.Diagram showing the theoretical interior of the gas giant planet Jupiter.

Formation of moons around a gas giant, illustration. This is how the moons of Jupiter and Saturn, and possibly Uranus, are thought to have formed. The planet is in the center, still growing. A concentric disc surrounds it, inside of which the natural satellites are forming via the process of accretion. The illustration could also show the formation of planets around a star, which was a similar process albeit on a far larger scale.Formation of moons around a gas giant, illustration.

Crabeater seal (Lobodon carcinophaga) on an iceberg in Antarctica. Crabeater seals are the most common large mammal on the planet after humans, with an estimated population of 15 million. They are a true Antarctic species, living on or around sea ice. As the sea ice retreats they are at real risk from climate change. Their main diet is krill, numbers of which have reduced by over 50 per cent.Crabeater seal (Lobodon carcinophaga) on an iceberg in Antarctica.

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.

DNA in space, conceptual illustration. It is thought that micro-organisms could survive the harsh conditions of space transported on the surface of space debris, such as comets and meteorites. These micro-organisms may form life on other planets if there are suitable conditions. The panspermia theory suggests the idea that life on Earth originated in this manner.DNA in space, conceptual illustration.
