WASP-18b Has Smothering Stratosphere Without Water

A NASA-led team has found evidence that the oversized planet is wrapped in a smothering stratosphere loaded with carbon monoxide and devoid of water. The findings come from a new analysis of observations made by the Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes.

Kepler-186f ~ The first known Earth-size planet to lie within the habitable zone of a star beyond the Sun. Discovered using data from the prolific planet-hunting Kepler spacecraft, the distant world orbits its parent star, a cool, dim, M dwarf star about half the size and mass of the Sun, some 500 light-years away from us, in the constellation Cygnus. While the size and orbit of Kepler-186f are known, its mass and composition are not, and can't be determined by Kepler's transit technique…

NASA’s Kepler space telescope has discovered a binary—or a planet revolving around a pair of stars —nearly 5,000 light years away. Tatooine, the iconic home planet of Luke and Anakin Skywalker in the Star Wars series, is also binary revolving around two stars, Tatoo I and Tattoo II.

NASA's Kepler mission has discovered a world where two suns set over the horizon instead of just one. The planet, called is not thought to be habitable. It is a cold world, with a gaseous surface, and it circles two stars, just like "Star Wars" Tatooine.
