The Hubble Space Telescope captured a fuzzy image of the planet, known as Fomalhaut b, which is no more than a white speck in the dust ring that surrounds the star.
A little more of the universe has been pried out of the shadows. Two groups of astronomers have taken the first pictures of what they say – and other astronomers agree – are most likely planets going around other stars.
The Hubble Telescope completes 100,000th orbit and takes yet another breathtaking photo.
A spacecraft sent on a mission to inspect comets has filmed the Earth and its moon from 31 million miles away, making an alien’s-eye view of our world.
Using two ESA spacecraft, planetary scientists are watching the atmospheres of Mars and Venus being stripped away into space.
