Life on Earth likely began with the bubble-like membranes that surround our cells. Similar membranes probably wouldn't form on Titan, according to quantum mechanics.
Saturn, sixth planet from the sun, is the second largest planet in our solar system.
As the 2010s come to a close, it's time to revisit how some of the biggest space science stories shaped the decade.
If there are creatures swimming in the buried oceans of the outer solar system, they're probably not related to us, new research suggests.
Earmark the next few evenings! Solar-system siblings Venus and Saturn will appear near each other in the night sky this week.
Champagne is supposed to be bubbly. So is a foaming bath. But a mixture designed to mimic the frigid lakes on an alien moon? That's a little more surprising.
After its Thanksgiving rendezvous with Jupiter and Venus, the moon will pay Saturn a visit on Black Friday (Nov. 29).
The full moon of November, called the Beaver Moon, will shine in the constellation Aries on Nov. 12, the same day as the peak of the Northern Taurid meteor shower.
Big, schmancy compounds keep popping up all over the solar system, and new research may help clear up confusion about how they form in so many places.
Astronomers have discovered 20 more Saturn moons, boosting the ringed planet's tally of known satellites to 82 — three more than Jupiter.
Scientists have detected new types of organic compounds in the plumes that have been erupting from Enceladus.
New shapeshifting robots could give us access to distant worlds like never before — including the soupy moon Titan in Saturn's neighborhood.
A new study suggests that Enceladus' geysers act as a 'snow-cannon,' making nearby moons snowy and reflective.
NASA and the European Space Agency unveiled the new Saturn portrait by the Hubble Space Telescope today (Sept. 12), and it is absolutely jaw-dropping.
