One of the closest stars to our own, Tau Ceti, appears to have five planets, including one that's in the so-called habitable zone and could be suitable for life.

Scientists at NASA have discovered a new constant that links different sizes of black holes.
The lonesome planetary nebula NGC 7354 is often overlooked because it is located in a relatively vacant region of space approximately 4,200 light-years away.
NASA's twin Grail spacecraft, which have been circling the moon for almost year, are set to crash into the moon's surface on Monday.
Peering deep into the past, astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope have identified seven primitive galaxies that formed more than 13 billion years ago, when the universe was less than three percent of its present age.

NASA has restored the dust archives from the Apollo 14 and Apollo 15 moon landing missions.
All that glitters may not be gold, but galaxy ESO 318-13 is nonetheless very impressive indeed.
A report sponsored by NASA has concluded that the agency is failing to inspire the world, the nation or even its own staff, and is unlikely to achieve long-term objectives such as a manned Mars landing.
US start-up company, Golden Spike, plans to offer affordable and routine trips to the moon.
NASA scientists have spotted long, narrow gullies on the giant asteroid Vesta that they say may have been carved out by liquid water.
Researchers at MIT, the California Institute of Technology, and the University of California at San Diego have peered so far back in time that they've found matter that pre-dates the creation of heavy elements.
