'Cyborg Astrobiologist' Uses Phone-Cam to Search for Life
Topic: Robotics & A.I.
Summary: A new visual system that is 'part-human, part-machine' has been developed to search for past or present life in planetary environments. Now, the instrument is being tested in extreme environments on Earth.

Inflatable Antennas Could Send CubeSats Farther
Topic: Missions
Summary: CubeSats are helping to make space exploration cheaper and more accessible. Now, researchers developing technology to significantly increase the communication range of these small satellites.

Magnetic Fields for ExoMoons?
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: A new study on the magnetic fields of giant extrasolar planets is helping astrobiologists understand the magnetic environment of extrasolar moons.

Dune Debris Flows Similar on Mars and the Arctic
Topic: Mars
Summary: By studying the Alaskan arctic, scientists have shown that frozen water can melt to form debris flows, even at air temperatures significantly below water's melting point.

The Largest Volcano on Earth
Topic: Earth
Summary: Scientists have discovered the largest single volcano yet documented on Earth.

Hydrogen Cyanide and Life's Origin
Topic: Origin & Evolution of Life
Summary: Studies show that hydrogen cyanide, which is found in large quantities in the Universe, can contribute to amino acid formation. Now, a new technique is helping scientists study all the thousands of molecules that can form from hydrogen cyanide reactions in the laboratory.

Simulating Safe Passage on Mars
Topic: Mars
Summary: Scientists have developed a model that could provide Mars mission planners with a better understanding of terramechanics on Mars.

Coldest Brown Dwarfs Blur Lines Between Stars and Planets
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
Summary: A new study shows that some brown dwarf stars may be as cool as room temperature. If one of these objects was orbiting another star, it might be mistaken for a planet.
