In this week's episode of Astronomy News with The Cosmic Companion, we look at a new study suggesting the Universe is expanding faster than it should be, we travel to a solar system with four very different worlds, and we explore how dust on alien worlds can affect the development, as well as the discovery, of extraterrestrial life.

Finally, we interview Dr. Matija Ćuk, a research scientist at the SETI Institute, discussing his recent discovery that Mars may have been accompanied, from time to time, by systems of rings.
