Your Weekly Horoscopes: January 30 to February 5, 2022

Inspiration strikes as the sun squares off with Uranus on the 30th. This is an energizing aspect for following hunches all the way down the rabbit hole. This alignment is found in the charts of celebs who seem to run on a higher frequency than the rest of us like Lenny Kravitz, Bono and Paris Hilton. Then on the 1st (or late night on the 31st for the West Coast), there’s a new moon in Aquarius, further emphasizing the need to be unabashedly ourselves.

What we found when we went looking for another Earth

In 1584, Italian friar Giordano Bruno argued that other stars had planets of their own and that those planets had inhabitants. He had no real proof of his claims — they just felt true. But they were heretical enough to get the attention of the Roman Catholic Church. The Inquisition arrested Bruno, put his tongue in a vice, and burned him at the stake.

How to find a planet you can’t see

Pluto was discovered in January of 1930, a tiny speck on a photographic plate. It was the most distant world humans had ever seen. Decades later, even the powerful Hubble Space Telescope struggled to get a good look at the dwarf planet — the Hubble image of Pluto is just a sickly yellow smudge.

NASA planet-hunting mission finds 5,000 possible alien worlds in less than 4 years.

Thanks to NASA's Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), these last four years have been jam-packed with exciting discoveries. To put it another way, the mission has just passed 5,000 objects of interest, or TOIs, which include exoplanet candidates and other fascinating signals. To better comprehend what TESS may have observed, astronomers choose items from the TOIs for further examination with other equipment.

Citizen Scientist Works With NASA To Discover New Planet

Former U.S. naval officer Tom Jacobs, of Bellevue, Washington, is celebrating a very unique discovery that combined his hobby of astronomy with cutting-edge NASA research. Jacobs is one of the “citizen scientists” who enjoys poring over the mountains of information that NASA collects about remote planets and stars — called TESS data.

A Solution to the Faint-Sun Paradox Reveals a Narrow Window for Life

Our sun is getting brighter. If you could travel back in time to the dawn of the solar system 4.5 billion years ago, you’d find a star that was about 30% dimmer than it is now. Over the subsequent eons, it has shone more and more brilliantly — a function of the nuclear fusion process that takes place in the cores of stars like our own — and it will continue to do so until the end of its life, roughly 5 billion years from now.

Gas giants: Facts about the outer planets and exoplanets

A gas giant is a large planet composed mostly of gases, such as hydrogen and helium, with a relatively small rocky core. The gas giants of our solar system are Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. These four large planets reside in the outer part of the solar system past the...

On the Edge of Destruction: These Newly-Discovered Planets Are Doomed

TESS (Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite) and other planet-hunting endeavors have found thousands of exoplanets in the last few years and decades. The exoplanets vary widely, from Earth-like planets in their stars’ quiet habitable zones to planets so hot that vaporized iron falls as rain. But these three exoplanets have...
