Windsurfing on Venus
Topic: Robotics & A.I.
08/24/13
Summary: A team of NASA researchers is studying technology that could explore Venus by taking advantage of the planet's winds. The Venus Landsailing Rover would analyze an area on the surface, and then sail across Venus to a new spot.

Littlest Continent's Big Role in Sea Level
Topic: Climate
08/23/13
Summary: New research shows that the convergence of three atmospheric patterns in 2010 and 2011 cause so much precipitation over Australia that the world's ocean levels dropped.

WISE Will Awaken to Hunt for Asteroids
Topic: Missions
08/23/13
Summary: NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) characterized thousands of asteroids before it was put in hibernation. After returning to service in September, the spacecraft will hunt for near-Earth objects in order to identify potential hazards to Earth and targets for exploration.

Free-floating Planets May Be Born Free
Topic: Cosmic Evolution
08/22/13
Summary: New observations have shown that not all free-floating planets were thrown out of planetary systems. Cold clouds in space have all the right characteristics to form planets, even though there is no parent star.

Curiosity Observes The Moons of Mars
Topic: Mars
08/21/13
Summary: NASA's Curiosity rover has captured a movie of Mars' larger moon, Phobos, passes directly in front of the smaller moon, Deimos.

Earth-Sized Planet Orbits Its Star in 8.5 Hours
Topic: New Planets
08/21/13
Summary: Astronomers have discovered an Earth-sized exoplanet that whips around its host star in just 8.5 hours. Kepler 78b has one of the shortest orbital periods yet known. The study is also the first time that light has been detected from such a small planet in orbit around a distant star.

NASA Statement on Conflicting Voyager Models
Topic: Outer Solar System
08/20/13
Summary: Scientists have presented a new and different model to explain data gathered from NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft. The publication argues that Voyager 1 has been detecting the interstellar magnetic field since July of 2012.

Ice Ages and Earth's Wobble
Topic: Earth
08/19/13
Summary: A new study shows that Antarctic warming began earlier than previously thought at the end of the last ice age.

Around the World in 4 Days: The Chelyabinsk Meteor's Plume
Topic: Meteorites, Comets and Asteroids
08/19/13
Summary: Last winter, a meteor exploded over Chelyabinsk, Russia, and released more than 30 times the energy from the atom bomb that destroyed Hiroshima. Now, satellites have measured a thin, persistent dust belt that the event left in Earth's atmosphere.

New Robotic Explorer to Search for Deep Sea DNA
Topic: Robotics & A.I.
08/18/13
Summary: Significant steps have been made in proving the feasibility of using fleets of autonomous robots to search for exotic life forms in the depths of Earth's oceans.
