Deposits of Phosphorites Could Be Geological Signpost of Life
Topic: Geology
Summary: A new study shows how phosphorite deposits might be a signature of ancient biological activity. The rocks contain abundant phosphorus, and their formation could have been the result of sulphur bacteria.

B612 Foundation Earth Day Impact Video
Topic: Meteorites, Comets and Asteroids
Summary: Between 2000 and 2013, a network of sensors detected 26 explosions on Earth ranging in energy from 1-600 kilotons - all caused not by nuclear explosions, but rather by asteroid impacts.

Mysteries of Nearby Planetary System's Dynamics
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: Scientists have presented the first viable model for the nearby planetary system around the star 55 Cancri.

From Red Mars to Green Earth
Topic: Spaceship Earth
Summary: How can a sensor for analyzing the atmosphere of Mars help us to cut greenhouse emissions on Earth? By going where no human or machine has been before.

LADEE Mission Ends with Planned Impact on Moon
Topic: Moon to Mars
Summary: NASA has confirmed that the Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE) spacecraft has finished its mission on April 17, 2014, with a planned impact on the surface of the Moon.

Appearance of Night-Shining Clouds Has Increased
Topic: Climate
Summary: New data shows that the presence of bright night-shining clouds has increased in a region that covers the northern third of the United Sates and the lowest parts of Canada. That information ties in with understanding the weather and climate of all Earth.

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.
