Chelyabinsk Fireball Provides Insight into Space Collisions
Topic: Meteorites, Comets and Asteroids
Summary: Scientists have reported new findings on meteorites that were recovered after the Chelyabinsk fireball that exploded over Russia earlier this year.

Jupiter and Saturn are Awash in Diamonds
Topic: Outer Solar System
Summary: Planetary scientists have found that the deep atmospheres of Jupiter and Saturn may contain chunks of diamond floating in a liquid hydrogen/helium fluid.

Water-Rich Rocky Planet's Remnants Orbit a White Dwarf Star
Topic: New Planets
Summary: Scientists have found evidence of the remains of a water-rich rocky planet in rocky debris around a white dwarf star. They estimate that the planet was composed of 26 percent by mass.

Earth May Have Formed in a Series of Steps
Topic: Earth
Summary: Scientists recreated the intense pressures and temperatures found deep within the Earth, resulting in a discovery that complicates theories of how the planet and its core were formed.

A Strange Lonely Planet That Has No Star
Topic: New Planets
Summary: Astronomers have discovered an exotic planet drifting through space without a host star. The object is unlike any free-floating planet yet discovered, and was spotted during a search for brown dwarf stars.

Planets That Skim a Star's Surface
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: Astronomers have identified candidate extrasolar planets that are orbiting so close to their host stars that they are nearly skimming the stellar surface.

Making Martian Clouds on Earth
Topic: Mars
Summary: Researchers have recreated martian clouds in a laboratory on Earth. Their work will help scientists understand the properties of clouds on Mars and the environmental conditions present in the martian atmosphere.

'Diamond' Planet May Not be Such a Gem
Topic: New Planets
Summary: Astronomers previously reported that the planet 55 Cancri e may be made of diamond. Now, by studying the composition of the planet's host star, scientists have determined that the planet may be less exquisite.

Telescopes Team up to Study Triple Asteroid
Topic: Meteorites, Comets and Asteroids
Summary: By combining observations from amateur astronomers and large telescopes, astronomers have uncovered valuable data about the complex interior of the asteroid (87) Sylvia.

First Evidence of a Comet Striking Earth
Topic: Meteorites, Comets and Asteroids
Summary: For the first time ever, scientists have positively identified cometary material that fell to Earth long ago. The study is the first proof a comet striking Earth, and will help astrobiologists study these unique celestial bodies and their role in our solar system's formation.
