Capturing the Solar Wind
Topic: Meteorites, Comets and Asteroids
Summary: The Genesis mission will return captured solar wind later this year using a dramatic helicopter grab of the descending spacecraft. Inside the probe sits the volume equivalent to a few grains of salt, but this first extraterrestrial sample return since Apollo promises insight into our primordial solar system.

Atom: Conversation with Lawrence Krauss
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: A single oxygen atom's odyssey from the big bang to life on earth is the centerpiece of physicist Lawrence Krauss' book, Atom. The epoch-spanning journey follows starlight itself towards complex biology: what it is, where it came from, and where it's going.

Interview with Brother Guy Consolmagno
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: At the 2004 Astrobiology Science Conference, Vatican astronomer Dr. Guy Consolmagno discussed his research as curator of one of the world's largest meteorite collections.

Interview with Beagle 2 Scientist
Topic: Mars
Summary: Beagle 2 Chief Scientist, Colin Pillinger, talks with Astrobiology Magazine about mission planning for the surface lander and how one might try to detect life using a robotic explorer.

How Advanced Could They Be?
Topic: Alien Life
Summary: Renowed physicist, Dr. Michio Kaku, considers the physics of extra-terrestrial civilizations, and whether we can classify their evolution judging from our own work in progress.

Nearby Planet Nursery
Topic: New Planets
Summary: In an exclusive interview with Berkeley astronomer, Paul Kalas, he describes how their planet-finding team uncovered a nearby nursery that may include the closest star with an embryonic solar system in the making.

Interview with Ben Bova
Topic: Missions
Summary: Ben Bova, the prolific author of science fiction novels such as "Mars" and "Jupiter," studies science and politics of astrobiology in his newest book, "Faint Echoes, Distant Stars." In this interview with Astrobiology Magazine, Bova shares his thoughts about astrobiology, space travel, and the discoveries of the future.

Mariners to the Red Planet
Topic: Mars
Summary: When Mariner IV took the first close views of Mars, the person charged with camera-tracking the planet was JPL's William Momsen. As the first step towards the outer reaches of our solar system, the Mariner series proved that interplanetary missions were possible.

The Greatest Catastrophe on Earth
Topic: Geology
Summary: Paleontologist Peter Ward of the University of Washington discusses his latest book, entitled "Gorgon: Paleontology, Obsession, and the Greatest Catastrophe on Earth", in which he follows the fossil trail of what might be left after over seven of every ten species on Earth disappeared 250 million years ago.

Can SETI Probe for Probes?
Topic: Alien Life
Summary: Just as our own robots reach out beyond the solar system, searching for life elsewhere may well involve hailing some kind of space artifact in our own neighborhood. At least one style of life search is about looking for the technological evidence of life, rather than its wet biology.
