Going the Distance: Funding your Future in Space
Topic: Missions
Summary: In this series of blog posts, contributors from gURLs in space offer advice on how to fund an education in the space sciences.

The Water Cycle Amplifies Abrupt Climate Change
Topic: Climate
Summary: A new study suggests that changes in the water cycle may have driven climate change at the onset of the Younger Dryas period 12680 years ago.

Public Views on Climate Engineering
Topic: Climate
Summary: A new study shows that the general public does not support the idea of deliberately manipulating Earth's environment to counteract climate change.

Milky Way May Have Formed 'Inside-Out'
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: New research suggests that stars in the inner regions of the Galactic disc were the first to form, supporting ideas that our Galaxy grew from the inside-out.

Beating Bacteria on Earth -- and in Space
Topic: Extreme Life
Summary: Already a major problem on Earth, increasingly resistant bacterial strains can be an even greater threat for space travelers. The Antibiotic Effectiveness in Space (AES-1) investigation will attempt to probe the reasons for antibiotic resistance in space.

A New Dimension to Cyanobacteria
Topic: Biosphere
Summary: Scientists have discovered that cyanobacteria continually produced vesicles full of carbon, nutrients and DNA. The tiny packages could be decoys for viruses or a means of exchanging genetic information.
