An amateur astronomer accidentally recorded a rare flash on Jupiter. The culprit turned out to be a 450-ton meteor.
The asteroid's impact released as much energy as the explosion of 240,000 tons of TNT, according to new analysis of the video.
Jupiter got hit by a planet with 10 times the mass of Earth billions of years ago, and its core is still reeling, a new study suggests
A head-on collision explains why Jupiter's core is so much more diffuse than scientists expected. Jupiter likely absorbed the smaller planet.
NASA’s future missions will shoot for an icy moon of Saturn, photograph the Big Bang, and more. Here’s what’s coming in the next 10 ...
NASA intends to return to the moon, continue on to Mars, and look for life near Saturn and Jupiter within 10 years. Its other plans go even further.
A Hubble image shows the bands of Jupiter's atmosphere in intense colors and highlights the planet's signature — though shrinking — storm.
Jupiter, Saturn and the moon will align in a rare phenomenon from June 14 to 19 – here’s when you can see it in Singapore
The phenomenon will take place while the moon is in its "waxing gibbous" phase and can be best viewed after 11pm, said Science Centre Singapore.
NASA’s $1 billion Juno spacecraft is probing Jupiter’s deepest secrets — here are Juno’s biggest discoveries so far
NASA's Juno probe reached Jupiter in July 2016, and scientists' view of the solar system has not been the same since. The $1 billion mission has taken stunning images of the gas giant and probed its deepest secrets with a suite of instruments.
Jupiter has a whole lot of moons, and just this year, scientists found 12 more.
NASA’s $1 billion mission to Jupiter has taken years of stunning images — here are some of Juno’s best shots
NASA's Juno spacecraft has pulled off its 14th daredevil orbit of Jupiter and is preparing to embark on the next phase of its journey. NASA recently extended the mission through July 2021, temporarily sparing it from doom. Here are some of its best photos and animations of Jupiter.
Juno's high-speed flybys around Jupiter, called perijoves, happen once every 53.5 days and have allowed NASA to document the gas giant like never before. The most recent trip (Juno's 14th perijove) occurred on July 16. Here's what the probe saw.
The researchers that discovered Jupiter's moons were searching for a hypothetical massive planet that might exist at the far fringes of our solar system, often referred to as Planet Nine or Planet X.
