Mini-Sub for Small Spaces
Topic: Europa
New from the Nordic issue of Astrobiology Magazine, European Edition is a story about a tiny submarine. Swedish researchers are developing a remote-controlled submersible that can fit through drilled holes in thick ice caps.

A Warm Breath of Carbon Dioxide
Topic: Climate
When the sun was young, it didn't produce enough heat to unfreeze ice on our planet. So why was the early Earth covered in liquid water and not ice?

Drilling Down to Alien Oceans
Topic: Missions
A new method of exploring thick icy sheets and what lies below them has been devised. Combining a drill and a melting tip, this probe is particularly useful for exploring icy locations such as the polar caps of Mars and Jupiter´s moon Europa.

Through a Glass Darkly
Topic: Extreme Life
New from the Nordic issue of Astrobiology Magazine, European Edition: Just as stained glass windows that decorate the world´s most beautiful cathedrals depict stories, ancient life may have its own tales to tell in glass.

Liquid Water in the Martian North? Maybe.
Topic: Mars
Scientists responsible for NASA's Phoenix mission were surprised to find the chemical compound perchlorate in the soil at the spacecraft's landing site. On Earth, perchlorate is commonly associated with liquid water. On Mars, however, the implication is not so clear.

The Stuff of Life on Titan
Topic: Titan
Reactions between organic compounds in Titan´s atmosphere and water on the surface may create complex molecules similar to those on the early Earth.

Ancient Footprints in the Salt
Topic: Origin & Evolution of Life
Scientists have discovered fibers from ancient organisms preserved inside salt crystals in New Mexico. The surprising finding could help astrobiologists search for signs of life on other planets.

Stars of the Deep
Topic: Extreme Life
Researchers studying life deep beneath the Earth's surface in a South African platinum mine have discovered microbes with a unique appearance. In fact, these tiny bacteria are the 'stars' of their community.

Machine Evolution
Topic: Origin & Evolution of Life
Many scientists believe that life started out as nothing more than strands of proto-genetic material known as RNA. A new device automates studies of RNA evolution and could lend insights into the origin of life on Earth.

Signals from an Infant Earth
Topic: Climate
Precise dating of zircon crystals suggests that Earth may have been conducive to life even before an epic influx of asteroids pummeled our planet 4 billion years ago.
