Living on the Edge: Rosetta's Lander Philae Is Set to Take the Plunge

This is a very exciting time for space science in general and for the Rosetta spacecraft in particular. A little more than a month after arriving at comet 7P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, Rosetta has mapped its surface well enough to help scientists choose a ... [Published Space Daily - 5 hours ago]

Light Scattering on Dust Holds Clues to Habitability

We are all made of dust. Dust particles can be found everywhere in space. Disks of dust and debris swirl around and condense to form stars, planets and smaller objects like comets, asteroids and dwarf planets. But what can dust tell us about life's potential ...

Planets with Oddball Orbits Like Mercury Could Host Life

Mercury has an oddball orbit - it takes longer for it to rotate on its axis and complete a day than it takes to orbit the sun and complete a year. Now, researchers suggest photosynthesis could take place on an alien planet with a similarly bizarre orbit, ... [Published Space Daily - Sep 29 2014]

Quotes

Professor Mark Maslin of University College London, concluded, "This project has allowed us to develop an accurate and cost effective means of annually monitoring tropical forest carbon storage and fluctuation. This will not only stimulate the global market in land carbon credits but will provide a means of measuring our effectiveness in protecting existing forest and reforestation. Both of which are essential if we are to prevent environmental degradation and reduce the effects of climate change."
"We have been working on the synthesis of chalcogenide materials using a chemical vapour deposition (CVD) process since 2001 and our technology has now achieved the fabrication of large area (>1000 mm2) ultra- thin films only a few atoms thick. Being able to manufacture sheets of MoS2 and related materials, rather than just microscopic flakes, as previously was the case, greatly expands their promise for nanoelectronic and optoelectronic applications."
...we can plan observations directed to search for prebiological/biological materials in space, especially in disks and exoplanets," said Kolokolova. "And they can be used in studies of the origin of homochirality; for example, through a survey of homochiral molecules in cosmic dust of different ages."
"These changes reflect complex biological and physical interactions within ocean ecosystems. Understanding how these interactions function in today's ocean is essential to predicting how marine ecosystems will change in the future." Future missions, such as the Pre-Aerosol, Clouds, and ocean Ecosystem (PACE) mission, will further elucidate the plankton dynamics and responses to climatic...
