You never know what to expect when it comes to breaking news in space exploration. This is the kind of news we wake up for in the mornings, the kind of news that sparks the imagination of endless possibilities! New evidence from the Hubble Space Telescope suggest there may be a saltwater ocean beneath the surface of Ganymede, Jupiter's largest moon. Such a discovery can lead to a new place to search for life in our solar system.
It seems like every where we look for life on exo-planets we still come up short. Things are just not adding up, how and why are planets so diifferent in other solar systems than our own? Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have gone looking for water vapor in the atmospheres of three planets orbiting stars similar to the Sun — and have come up nearly dry.
