Nutritious Space Veggies
Topic: Moon to Mars
Summary: A new study shows that the nutritious value of leafy vegetables grown in space could be increased with bright pulses of light.

Tackling Tumors With Space Station Research
Topic: Moon to Mars
Summary: Researchers have found that some tumors seem to be much less aggressive in the microgravity environment of space compared to their behavior on Earth. This work is the latest in a large body of evidence on how space exploration benefits those of us on Earth.

Dimer Molecules and the Hunt for Life
Topic: Alien Life
Summary: Astronomers have developed a new method to study atmospheric pressure on exolpanets. The same technique could one day help identify biosignatures on alien worlds.

The Space Double-Whammy: Less Gravity, More Radiation
Topic: Moon to Mars
Summary: A new study will examine the effect of gravity and radiation on DNA damage and repair. This kind of research not only aims to make space safer for astronauts, but to improve health care for the Earth-bound as well.

Pinwheel 'Living' Crystals and the Origin of Life
Topic: Origin & Evolution of Life
Summary: Scientists have discovered that spinning nanoparticles have a tendency to organize themselves, and the process may shed new light on the origin of life.

Study Projects Big Thaw for Antarctic Sea Ice
Topic: Climate
Summary: Researchers say Ross Sea will reverse current trend, be largely ice free in summer by 2100.

Climate Engineering: Minor Potential, Major Side Effects
Topic: Climate
Summary: Researchers show limitations and side effects of large-scale climate intervention.

Ancient 'Great Leap Forward' for Life in the Open Ocean
Topic: Origin & Evolution of Life
Summary: Researchers studying genomic data of cyanobacteria have revealed new clues about the evolution of complex life on Earth.

A River of Plasma, Guarding Against the Sun
Topic: Spaceship Earth
Summary: MIT scientists identify a plasma plume that naturally protects the Earth against solar storms.

Predicting Extinctions with Climate Change
Topic: Climate
Summary: A new NASA-funded study shows that the extinction risks brought about by climate change are not only high, but also predictable.
