Amateur astronomers are welcome to help in finding the ninth planet in our solar system.
Astronomers with the help of the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey data have been able to figure out how fast the universe was expanding just 3 billion years after the Big Bang.
We may all be Martians, according to scientists who recently discovered more evidence that life on Earth may have started on Mars.

With the possible appearances of two comets, stargazers are in for a fabulous treat this year. Comet Pan-STARRS will make its appearance in March. It will be visible for people across the northern Hemisphere. Comet ISON will appear in October 2013 and will move from the Southern Hemisphere across the Northern Hemisphere. Whether these comets will be a shiner or a dud is yet to be seen. It all depends on their capacity to tolerate the immense heat emanated from the sun. Comet ISON or C/2012 S1 (as it is officially known), was discovered by two Russian astronomers - Vitali Nevski and Artyom Novichonok Sept. 21, 2012.
