The planet Kepler-16b with its two stars. The cold planet, with its gaseous surface, is not thought to be habitable. The largest of the two stars, a K dwarf, is about 69 percent the mass of our sun, and the smallest, a red dwarf, is about 20 percent the sun’s mass. (Photo by R. Hurt/Reuters/NASA/JPL-Caltec)

Astronomers have discovered 1,284 more planets beyond our solar system, with nine possibly in orbits suitable for surface water that could bolster the prospects of supporting life.

An artist’s concept shows the Cassini spacecraft passing by Saturn’s moon Enceladus to study plumes from geysers that erupt from giant fissures in the moon’s southern polar region. The huge plumes of water vapor and ice particles are spewing at supersonic speeds in a way that strongly suggests they come from liquid water hidden down below the icy surface. This offers evidence the moon may harbor conditions that could support life, even if only microbial organisms. (Photo by Karl Kofoed/Reuters/NASA)

Kepler-22b, the most Earth-like planet ever discovered, is circling a star 600 light years away. It is the smallest and the best positioned to have liquid water on its surface – among the ingredients necessary for life on Earth. (Photo by Reuters/NASA/Ames/JPL-Caltech)


The European Space Agency’s Huygens probe descent sequence from the Cassini spacecraft to Saturn’s moon Titan in January 2005. Scientists reconstructed the chain of events from the landing by analyzing data from a variety of instruments that were active during the impact and found that the spacecraft, bounced, slid and wobbled its way to rest in the 10 seconds after touching down on Titan.

A Jupiter-sized planet passing in front of its parent star. Such events are called transits. When the planet transits the star, the star’s apparent brightness drops by a few percent for a short period. (Photo by G. Bacon/Reuters/NASA/ESA)


A planet-like object dubbed Sedna, a small icy body far beyond Pluto and the Kuiper Belt, a discovery that calls into question exactly what was going on during the early days of the solar system. (Photo by Reuters/NASA/JPL-Caltech)


The star V838 Mon, whose outer surface suddenly greatly expanded with the result that it became the brightest star in the entire Milky Way Galaxy in January 2002. Then, just as suddenly, it faded. A stellar flash like this had never been seen before. (Photo by Reuters/NASA/ESA)


A supermassive black hole with millions to billions times the mass of our sun. The accretion disk surrounding the center forms as the dust and gas in the galaxy falls onto the hole, attracted by its gravity. Also shown is an outflowing jet of energetic particles, believed to be powered by the black hole’s spin. (Photo by Reuters/NASA/JPL-Caltech)


The planet Kepler-186f, the first validated Earth-size planet to orbit a distant star in the habitable zone, which is a range of distance from a star where liquid water might pool on the planet’s surface. The discovery is the closest scientists have come so far to finding a true Earth twin. The star, known as Kepler-186 and located about 500 light years away in the constellation Cygnus, is smaller and redder than the sun. (Photo by Reuters/NASA/JPL-Caltech)


A world just two-thirds the size of Earth – one of the smallest on record – detected by NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope. The exoplanet candidate, known as UCF-1.01, orbits a star called GJ 436, which is located a mere 33 light-years away. UCF-1.01 might be the nearest world to our solar system that is smaller than our home planet. Evidence for UCF-1.01 turned up when astronomers were studying a known, Neptune-sized exoplanet, called GJ 436b, seen in the background in this image. The identification of nearby small planets may lead to their characterization using future instruments. In this way, worlds like UCF-1.01 might serve as stepping stones to one day finding a habitable, Earth-like exoplanet. (Photo by Reuters/NASA/JPL-Caltech)

A baffling planet, known as HAT-P-1, that is much larger than theory predicts. The planet has a radius about 1.38 times Jupiter’s but contains only half Jupiter’s mass. (Photo by David A. Aguilar/Reuters)

The circumbinary planet Kepler-16b – the first planet known to definitively orbit two stars. The cold planet, with its gaseous surface, is not thought to be habitable. The largest of the two stars, a K dwarf, is about 69 percent the mass of our sun, and the smallest, a red dwarf, is about 20 percent the sun’s mass. These star pairs are called eclipsing binaries.

A unique type of exoplanet discovered with the Hubble Space Telescope. The planet is so close to its star that it completes an orbit in 10.5 hours. The planet is only 750,000 miles from the star, or 1/130th the distance between Earth and the Sun. (Photo by A. Schaller/Reuters/NASA/ESA)


The Jupiter-size extrasolar planet, HD 189733b, being eclipsed by its parent star. The planet is a “hot Jupiter”, so close to its parent star that it completes an orbit in only 2.2 days. (Photo by M. Kornmesser/Reuters//ESA/NASA)


A planet called Kepler-20e, an Earth-size planet orbiting a sun-like star outside our solar system. (Photo by Reuters/NASA/Ames/JPL-Caltech)

This Artist Draws Comics To Blow Off Some Steam During The Coronavirus Pandemic

According to Mark Zukor: “Who says you can’t have a little fun during dark times? Certainly not me. That’s why, to blow off some steam during the pandemic, I’ve been making cartoons about my experience. It started as a creative way to entertain myself. I’ve always loved cartoons but never actually made my own. While they include everything from current events, to politics, to everyday life...

“Mersey Paradise”: Photographer Tom Wood Spent Decades Photographing The Pubs, Clubs And Bus Rides Of Liverpool – And The People Who Inhabited Them

Looking for Love (‘Anyone got any hairspray?’), 1983 Between 1982 and 1985, Tom Wood took photographs in the now-demolished Chelsea Reach nightclub in New Brighton. Shooting in the dark on busy nights, Wood evokes the noise and heat of the club through the bawdy, drunken and unselfconscious interactions of the customers. These photographs were only possible because Wood was accepted as a regular...
