A New Strategy to Search for Aliens
Topic: Alien Life
Summary: Scientists have proposed a novel approach for detecting intelligent life beyond our solar system. The method focuses on monitoring nearby stars to search for interstellar communication devices.

Will Comet ISON Survive Its Brush with the Sun?
Topic: Meteorites, Comets and Asteroids
Summary: A new study examines comet ISON's chances of surviving its close pass of the Sun. Studying how the Sun affects ISON can help astrobiologists learn about its physical properties.

How Microbes Survive Freezing
Topic: Extreme Life
Summary: A new study is helping astrobiologists understand how microbes survive in ice. The research sheds light on how microorganisms could survive in permafrost, and perhaps buried in ice on Mars.

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.
