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

Solving a 30-Year-Old Problem in Massive Star Formation
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
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
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
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
Summary: A new study shows that growing up in space can weaken a key part of the immune system in fruit flies.

Predatory Organisms at Depth
Topic: Extreme Life
Summary: A new study shows that viruses might greatly outnumber microorganisms in the deep biosphere of the Earth.

Model Anticipates Ecological Impacts of Human Responses to Climate
Topic: Climate
