Venus: Inhabited World?
Topic: Venus
Summary: In part 1 of this interview with Astrobiology Magazine editor Henry Bortman, planetary scientist David Grinspoon explained how Venus evolved from a wet planet similar to Earth to the scorching hot, dried-out furnace of today. In part 2, Grinspoon discusses the possibility of life on Venus.

Venus: Hothouse Planet
Topic: Venus
Summary: Before spaceprobes could photograph Venus up close, the second planet from the Sun was often compared to a sister world, much like the Earth. Planetary scientist, David Grinspoon, discusses with Astrobiology Magazine how that view evolved to consider the extremes encountered on the Venusian surface.

Saturn's Moon Titan: Prebiotic Laboratory
Topic: Titan
Summary: Jonathan Lunine, professor of planetary science and physics at the University of Arizona's Lunar and Planetary Laboratory in Tucson, Arizona, has a longtime fascination with Saturn's largest moon, Titan.

Saturn's Moon Titan: Planet Wannabe
Topic: Titan
Summary: Jonathan Lunine, professor of planetary science and physics at the University of Arizona's Lunar and Planetary Laboratory in Tucson, Arizona, has long been fascinated by Saturn's largest moon, Titan.

Amplified Intelligence
Topic: Robotics & A.I.
Summary: Will machines make humans smarter or just more dependent on our calculators, car navigators, and kitchen conveniences? Dr. Ken Ford of the Institute of Human and Machine Cognition reclassifies several key problems in developing smarter machines into a category called, "Amplified Intelligence".

Lab-On-a-Chip: Sampling Mars
Topic: Mars
Summary: Using a biodetection method called Raman spectroscopy, scientists may be able to look for proteins and amino acids in a miniaturized instrment about the size of a credit card. The small scale of the test has earned the name, 'lab-on-a-chip'.

Terraforming Mars, the Noble Experiment?
Topic: Mars
Summary: Mars Society founder, Robert Zubrin, talks about how to terraform the red planet. His engineer's eye reveals his robust plans for not just getting to a new home, but also how to build one from scratch.

Investigating Endurance Crater
Topic: Mars
Summary: NASA's Opportunity rover has spent the past few weeks exploring Endurance Crater in Meridiani Planum. Steve Squyres, principal investigator for the rover mission, spoke recently with Astrobiology Magazine's managing editor Henry Bortman.

Spirit Explores the Columbia Hills
Topic: Mars
Summary: After a long trek across the floor of Gusev Crater, NASA's Spirit rover arrived late last month at the base of the Columbia Hills. Scientists believe that the hills are older than the surrounding plain, and holds clues to Gusev's more-distant past.

Fleshing Out Martian Proteins
Topic: Mars
Summary: Berkeley biophysicist, Richard Mathies, talked with Astrobiology Magazine about plans for a 2009 experiment to test for martian biology. By making a portable test for protein detection and classification, his contribution to future forensics may yield the most comprehensive tests yet for detecting life elsewhere.
