Hot Topic Exploration Missions
 
Houston, We┬┤ve Had a Conference!
Topic: Missions
05/10/10
The 2010 Astrobiology Science Conference was a wild rodeo of ideas, debates, and scientific discovery. Although there was far too much science presented over four days to cover in full, this round-up provides a few highlights.

Exploring Beneath Antarctic Ice
Topic: Missions
04/08/10
The NASA-funded ENDURANCE project has completed its second field season robotically exploring the waters of an ice-covered lake in Antarctica. Insight gained by the expedition will help scientists prepare for a future mission to Jupiter´s moon Europa.

Supersonic Freefall
Topic: Missions
04/03/10
The sound barrier was first broken by an aircraft in 1947, but this year a man will attempt to break the sound barrier with his body alone. His freefall jump from the edge of space will not only break records, but could contribute valuable information about human physiology for future space missions.

Into the Mouth of a Volcano
Topic: Missions

Scientists are testing a miniature laboratory that could be used to study the composition of rocks and atmospheres on moons, asteroids and planets in the solar system. A recent field test of the instrument was performed in the mouth of a sleeping Hawaiian volcano.

2010: An Astrobiology Odyssey
Topic: Missions
02/26/10
Scientists and students interested in astrobiology will want to make an odyssey to two conferences this year: AbSciCon and AbGradCon.

Voyager's Group Portrait
Topic: Missions
02/16/10
NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft sailed beyond the outermost planet in our solar system 22 years ago. As a parting gift, the craft turned its camera back toward the Sun and captured a family portrait of the planets. The image showed the Earth as a tiny and precious 'pale blue dot' among the stars.

The Stars My Destination
Topic: Missions
11/09/09
The Voyager spacecraft are now in the outermost layer of the heliosphere, traveling toward interstellar space – the first man-made spacecraft to travel such a vast distance from Earth.

Fantastic Voyage
Topic: Missions
11/02/09
By travelling to the outer solar system, the two Voyager spacecraft allowed us to see amazing details of far-distant planets and moons.
