Alien Moons Could Bake Dry from Young Gas Giants' Hot Glow
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: A big problem for otherwise habitable moons is the heat radiating from their gas giant planets.

Oldest Bit of Crust Firms Up Idea of a Cool Early Earth
Topic: Earth
Summary: With the help of a tiny fragment of zircon extracted from a remote rock outcrop in Australia, the picture of how our planet became habitable to life about 4.4 billion years ago is coming into sharper focus.

Topic: Meteorites, Comets and Asteroids
Summary: NASA meteor and fireball experts Dr. Bill Cooke, Danielle Moser and Rhiannon Blaauw will answer questions on beginning at 1 p.m. CST Thursday, March 6, on the Reddit "IAmA" forum.

NASA Researcher Finds Planet-Sized Space Weather Explosions at Venus
Topic: Venus
Summary: Researchers recently discovered that a common space weather phenomenon on the outskirts of Earth's magnetic bubble, the magnetosphere, has much larger repercussions for Venus.

Every Red Dwarf Star Has at Least One Planet
Topic: New Planets
Summary: Red Dwarfs make up about three quarters of all stars in the Universe. A new study indicates that virtually all of them might have orbiting planets.

Current Ice Melt Rate in Pine Island Glacier May Go On For Decades
Topic: Climate
Summary: New research shows that the Pine Island Glacier experienced rapid thinning about 8,000 years ago. The findings indicate that modern-day melting and thinning could last for several more decades or even centuries.

What Would A Rocky Exoplanet Look Like? Atmosphere Models Seek Clues
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: Exoplanet researchers are working on a model of what types of atmospheres are typical for different kinds of planets. One of their goals is to better predict habitability.

'Super-Earths' May Be Dead Worlds
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: New research suggests that planets that form from less massive cores can become benign habitats for life, whereas larger objects end up as ‘mini-Neptunes' with thick atmospheres and probably stay sterile.

Water is Detected in a Planet Outside Our Solar System
Topic: New Planets
Summary: Astronomers have used a new technique to identify water in the atmosphere of an extrasolar planet. The planet is a 'hot Jupiter' that orbits a nearby star named Tau Boötis.

Extreme Weather Decides Distribution of Insects
Topic: Climate
Summary: Extreme weather caused by climate change in the coming decades is likely to have profound implications for distributions of insects and other invertebrates.
