Regulating Asteroid Mining

The idea of mining asteroids is definitely in vogue. In the past few years commercial space advocates have been pursuing new private-sector space business activities. Profiting from orbital operations is not a new idea. Commercial space activities started ... [Published Space Daily - Aug 27 2014]

Ice sheet highs, lows and loss

Measurements from ESA's CryoSat mission have been used to map the height of the huge ice sheets that blanket Greenland and Antarctica and show how they are changing. New results reveal combined ice volume loss at an unprecedented rate of 500 cubic kilometres ... [Published Space Daily - Aug 26 2014]

Artificial Cells Act Like the Real Thing

Imitation, they say, is the sincerest form of flattery, but mimicking the intricate networks and dynamic interactions that are inherent to living cells is difficult to achieve outside the cell. Now, as published in Science, Weizmann Institute scientists ... [Published Space Daily - Aug 26 2014]

Analyzing Snowfall Data for GPM

Snow awes and annoys, brings nostalgia or abhorrence. For Jorel Torres, snow makes him curious-so much that he studies it. For the past ten weeks, Torres compared various ground measurements of snow to data from NASA's Global Precipitation Measurement ... [Published Space Daily - Aug 25 2014]

A study of possible extended symmetries of field theoretic systems

Many physical systems, from superfluids to pi mesons, are understood to be manifestations of spontaneous symmetry breaking, whereby the symmetries of a system are not realized by its lowest energy state.A consequence of spontaneous symmetry breaking is ... [Published Space Daily - Aug 25 2014]

Discovery suggests surprising uses for common bubbles

Anyone who has ever had a glass of fizzy soda knows that bubbles can throw tiny particles into the air. But in a finding with wide industrial applications, Princeton researchers have demonstrated that the bursting bubbles push some particles down into ... [Published Space Daily - Aug 25 2014]

Quotes

"We were able to prove unequivocally to the world that Antarctica is not a dead continent" Priscu said, adding that data in the Nature paper is the first directdirect evidence that life is present in the subglacial environment beneath the Antarctic...
"We're quite pleased to be on pace to successfully integrate our 12th battery type by the end of 2014 - and while it's become fashionable to proclaim battery-agnosticism in the marketplace, it's quite another thing to have actually executed and delivered the goods."
As it turns out, there already is a legal foundation for how we use outer space. Article I of the 1967 Outer Space Treaty says, "The exploration and use of outer space, including the moon and other celestial bodies, shall be carried out for the benefit and in the interests of all countries, irrespective of their degree of economic or scientific development, and shall be the province of all mankind."
"Whilst CryoSat provides essential continuity in an ice sheet elevation record dating back to ESA's ERS satellite data from the early 1990s, these results also highlight its design capability to capture regional patterns in the rate of change."
