The Kepler spacecraft has found 134 confirmed planets outside our solar system and another 3,277 unconfirmed candidates. But has its time run out? NASA scientists are planning one last ditch effort to rescue the space telescope.
Meanwhile Hubble has analysed a planet 63 light years away and found it's a deep blue colour! Also, it's big and moving really really fast.
Lucas has found a gravity simulator that lets you build solar systems and watch as objects of different mass interact. It's mesmerising!
A look back at some old Hubble photographs led planetary astronomer Mike Showalter to discover a new moon orbiting Neptune.
The planarian is a simple flatworm, which can regrow its head after decapitation. But a recent experiment suggests they might be able to keep their memories from before the decapitation!
