In Voyager 2 made our first close encounter with the stunning blue planet Neptune. Its surprisingly turbulent, storm-laden atmosphere, this far from the sun, was clearly being driven by heat from deep within the planet [Photo: Nasa/Corbis]

Name a dog Jupiter. Jupe for short. Yes I want to name my dog Jupiter. Get over it! haha;)

Mass one-thousandth that of the Sun but is two and a half times the mass of all the other planets in our Solar System combined. Jupiter is classified as a gas giant along with Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.

Researchers led by the University of Cambridge have detected atmospheric variability on a rocky planet outside the solar system, and observed a nearly threefold change in temperature over a two year period.They believe the readings could be due to massive amounts of volcanic activity on the surface. The ability to peek into the atmospheres of rocky ‘super Earths’ and observe conditions on their surfaces marks an important milestone towards identifying habitable planets outside the solar…

Astronomers believe they have found an alien solar system packed with a record-breaking three potentially habitable worlds...There could be many more habitable planets in the Milky Way than we ever thought.  http://newswatch.nationalgeographic.com/2013/06/25/bumper-crop-habitable-worlds-discovered-space-science/

Gliese 667 Cc times Earth's mass) orbits red dwarf star Gliese 667 C, the smallest star in a triple-star system about light years away from us. Analyses have shown 667 Cc to be in the habitable zone and a leading contender to harbor life.
