Small Increase in Hydrogen Sulfide Made Ancient Ocean Toxic for Life
Topic: Climate
11/03/13
Summary: A new study has provided insight into ocean chemistry during a dramatic climate event that occurred on Earth 93.9 million years ago. The results also hold clues about how future changes in ocean chemistry could affect life on Earth.

Pillownauts Help Spaceflight Studies
Topic: Moon to Mars
11/02/13

Carbon Worlds May be Waterless
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
11/02/13
Summary: NASA-funded research indicates that planetary systems with so-called 'diamond planets' may have icy water reservoirs that are too small for oceans to exist on the planets themselves.

Turbo Taxonomy and the Cyber-Centipede
Topic: Origin & Evolution of Life
11/01/13
Summary: Researchers have developed a new method for classifying species that combines techniques like molecular biology, barcoding, computing and imaging.

A Crater as an Abode for Life
Topic: Meteorites, Comets and Asteroids
11/01/13
Summary: A new study shows how the heat generated from an asteroid impact could lead to a crater becoming a refuge for life, or even a potential birthplace for life's origin.

Blazing-Hot Exoplanet has Earth-Like Size and Mass
Topic: New Planets
10/31/13
Summary: New research shows that, while the planet Kepler 78b is too hot for life, it is roughly the same size as the Earth. In fact, Kepler 78b is one of the smallest exoplanets that astronomers have measured thus far.

Defying Gravity, Part 3
Topic: Moon to Mars
10/31/13
Summary: The third in our list of spacewalking women is astronaut Kathryn C. Thornton. Her first spacewalk was from the Shuttle Endeavor. In total, Thornton logged an impressive 21 hours on extra vehicular activities.
