A Star's Early Chemistry Shapes Life-Friendly Atmospheres
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: The chemistry of a star's protoplanetary disc could influence the later composition of planetary atmospheres.

Bridging the Gaps: Centre for Astrochemical Studies opens at MPE
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: A new group will study interstellar molecules to explore how stars and planets form, bringing together theorists, observers and laboratory scientists in one place--a unique combination of expertise needed to finally make progress on the origin of organic molecules in space as well as our astrochemical origins.

New Study Shows Global Warming is Not Natural
Topic: Climate
Summary: A new study shows that, with more than 99 percent certainty, warming trends in the industrial era are not due to natural fluctuation in Earth's climate.

Researchers Decipher Climate Paradox from the Miocene
Topic: Climate
Summary: As the Antarctic ice sheet grew to its present-day size around 14 million years ago, other regions on Earth became warmer. Researchers have now discovered why.

Possible Exomoon Found
Topic: New Planets
Summary: Researchers have spotted the first signs of a potential 'exomoon.' It's presence cannot be confirmed because it was observed during a chance encounter of objects that will not occur again - but it is a step toward locating other moons around distant stars.

Study Resolves Controversy Over Nitrogen's Ocean 'Exit Strategies'
Topic: Biosphere
Summary: New findings may settle a decades-long debate over how nitrogen is removed from the ocean. Understanding nitrogen cycling is crucial to understanding the productivity of the oceans as well as the global climate.

First Earth-Size Planet In The 'Habitable Zone' of Another Star
Topic: New Planets
Summary: Using NASA's Kepler Space Telescope, astronomers have discovered the first Earth-size planet orbiting a star in the "habitable zone" -- the range of distance from a star where liquid water might pool on the surface of an orbiting planet.

Climate Change Drove Evolution of Ice Age Predators
Topic: Biosphere
Summary: New scientific studies at the La Brea Tar Pits are probing the link between climate warming and the evolution of Ice Age predators, attempting to predict how animals will respond to climate change today.

Icebreaking Mars
Topic: Missions
Summary: NASA Scientists have outlined a new lander mission to Mars, dubbed ‘Icebreaker.' According to their study, the lander could soon be ready to drill beneath the surface of Mars and search for signs of past or present life.

Rare Fossilized 500 Million Years Old Embryos
Topic: Origin & Evolution of Life
Summary: Researchers have found rare fossilized embryos from the Cambrian period. Their methods of study may help with future interpretation of evolutionary history.
