Mars Rover Testing in the Atacama
Topic: Mars
10/08/13
Summary: Next week, scientists from the European Space Agency will be testing a prototype of the ExoMars rover in Chile's Atacama desert.

Life May be Harder to Identify on Some Exoplanets
Topic: Alien Life
10/08/13
Summary: A new study suggests that finding life on an exoplanet may be more difficult than previously thought. The study focuses on the study of planets around M dwarf stars, which are very different from our own sun.

Self-Assembling Robots
Topic: Robotics & A.I.
10/07/13
Summary: New robots that are cubes with no external moving parts are able to climb, leap, roll, and even attach themselves to each other

Astrobiology in the Folds
Topic: Origin & Evolution of Life
10/07/13
Summary: Astrobiologists have revealed new information about the structure of RNA molecules found in the ribosome of cells. The study indicates that long-accepted models of ribosomal RNA, which are used to study how ribosomes function, require some major updating.

Fossils Prove Flowers Appeared Much Earlier
Topic: Origin & Evolution of Life
10/06/13
Summary: Scientists have identified plant-like fossil pollen grains that are 100 million years older than previously reported fossil pollen.

Climate Puzzle Over Origins of Life on Earth
Topic: Origin & Evolution of Life
10/06/13
Summary: Scientists have ruled out one theory that attempts to explain how the Earth was warm enough for life to originate on Earth at a time when the Sun's energy was only three quarters of its current strength.

Putting a Face on a Robot
Topic: Robotics & A.I.
10/05/13
Summary: A new study finds that older and younger people have different preferences for the appearances of personal robots.

A New Look at Creating the Seeds of Life in Asteroids
Topic: Meteorites, Comets and Asteroids
10/05/13
Summary: Scientists have introduced an new theory explaining how biomolecules could have been formed inside of asteroids in the early Solar System.

Scientists Create Artificial Cell Membranes
Topic: Origin & Evolution of Life
10/04/13
Summary: Scientists have developed a method for assembling membranes layer by layer to create synthetic cells. Their work could help astrobiologists understand how the first living cells originated.

A Microbe's Fountain of Youth
Topic: Origin & Evolution of Life
10/04/13
Summary: Researchers have found that, under the right conditions, the yeast S. pombe doesn't grow old. The discovery provides insight into our understanding of aging, and shows that even some of the best-studied life forms can still have surprising qualities.
