Smartest Aliens May Live Around Red Dwarf Stars : Discovery News -- The scientists say the best place buy real estate for long-term habitability is around a red dwarf star. A planet can remain cozy for advanced life for a stretch of time that is five times greater than for Earth.

Top 5 Habitable Planets Beyond Our Solar System

Solar System Planets and Dwarf Planets by carter flynn

This artist's conception illustrates a giant planet floating freely without a parent star. Astronomers recently uncovered evidence for such lone worlds, thought to have been booted from developing star systems. The sun may have captured such a planet, which new work shows may reside at the edge of the solar system.

In this artist's conception, Jupiter's migration through the solar system has swept asteroids out of stable orbits, sending them careening into one another. As the gas giant planets migrated, they stirred the contents of the solar system. Objects from as close to the Sun as Mercury, and as far out as Neptune, all collected in the main asteroid belt, leading to the diverse composition we see today.

15 Things You Didn’t Know About Outer Space... (Fact 5 is wrong: According to the picture, yes, Jupiter is the second largest planet, and Saturn’s density is the lightest in the entire solar system, however, the planet itself is only lighter than Jupiter and Neptune, making Saturn the 3rd heaviest planet in the solar system)

|| Astronomers have discovered an Earth-size planet orbiting one of the nearest stars in our galaxy.

The rings of Saturn are among the crown jewels of our solar syste, but it turns out that asteroids can have rings of their own, too. Here: See an artist's view of the rings surrounding the asteroid Chariklo, which is only 155 miles (250 kilometers) across. The asteroid is the first non-planetary body in the solar system discovered to have its own ring system. Image released March 26, 2014. [See videos and read the full story here]

This artist's concept illustrates the preferred model for explaining ALMA observations of Beta Pictoris. At the outer fringes of the system, the gravitational influence of a hypothetical giant planet (bottom left) captures comets into a dense, massive swarm (right) where frequent collisions occur.

Our home in space is a vast galaxy containing 400 billion suns, at least that many planets, and a 4-billion-solar-mass black hole at the center.
