From One Cell to Many: How Did Multicellularity Evolve?
Topic: Origin & Evolution of Life
02/05/14
Summary: Plant evolutionary biologist Karl Niklas explores the underlying driving forces and constraints that have influenced the evolution of multicellularity.

Moon Mission to Continue
Topic: Moon to Mars
02/05/14
Summary: NASA has extended the Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE) mission for an additional 28 days. LADEE will now make the closest orbit of the lunar surface yet, gathering valuable data from low altitudes in the Moon's thin atmosphere.

Adapting to Acidic Oceans
Topic: Biosphere
02/04/14
Summary: The world's oceans are becoming more acidic, changing in a way that hasn't happened for millions of years. But will marine organisms from tiny coccolithophores to king crabs change along with the waters?

Space Dust Carries Water and Organic Carbon
Topic: Origin & Evolution of Life
02/04/14
Summary: For the first time, scientists have detected water molecules on the surface of interplanetary dust particles. The findings open a new possibility about the delivery of life's ingredients to Earth and potentially elsewhere.

New Technique Could Be Used to Search Space Dust for Life's Ingredients
Topic: Origin & Evolution of Life
02/03/14
Summary: NASA scientists have used advanced technology to study extremely small samples of meteorites for the components of life.

Lights, Camera, MAVEN: A Mission to Uncover the History of Mars
Topic: Mars
02/03/14
Summary: On a mission to shed light on the red planet's lost atmosphere, MAVEN will use eight instruments, five deep dips and an eccentric orbit to capture the myriad the forces of sun, wind, charge and magnetism in action.

Solving a 30-Year-Old Problem in Massive Star Formation
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
02/02/14
Summary: An international group of astrophysicists has found evidence strongly supporting a solution to a long-standing puzzle about the birth of some of the most massive stars in the universe.

How Circumbinary Planets Form
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
02/02/14
Summary: A new study sheds light on the formation of planets that orbit two stars.

Ancient Forests Stabilized Earth's CO2 and Climate
Topic: Climate
02/01/14
Summary: Researchers have identified a biological mechanism that could explain how the Earth's atmospheric carbon dioxide and climate were stabilised over the past 24 million years.

Weakened Immunity in Space-Raised Flies
Topic: Moon to Mars
02/01/14
Summary: A new study shows that growing up in space can weaken a key part of the immune system in fruit flies.
