Bacteria manipulate salt to build shelters to hibernate
For the first time, Spanish researchers have detected an unknown interaction between microorganisms and salt. When Escherichia coli cells are introduced into a droplet of salt water and is left to dry, bacteria manipulate the sodium chloride crystallisation to create biomineralogical biosaline 3D morphologically complex formations, where they hibernate.  View News Article (2014-07-25)


UEA research shows oceans vital for possibility of alien life
Researchers at the University of East Anglia have made an important step in the race to discover whether other planets could develop and sustain life. View News Article (2014-07-21)


New theory turns cancer on its head
A new theory of how cancer works could lead to the next generation of treatments of the disease. View News Article (2014-07-14)


55-year old dark side of the moon mystery solved
The Man in the Moon appeared when meteoroids struck the Earth-facing side of the moon creating large flat seas of basalt that we see as dark areas called maria. But no "face" exists on farside of the moon and now, Penn State astrophysicists think they know why.  View News Article (2014-06-10)


Vitamin B3 Might Have Been Made in Space, Delivered to Earth by Meteorites
Ancient Earth might have had an extraterrestrial supply of vitamin B3 delivered by carbon-rich meteorites, according to a new analysis by NASA-funded researchers.  View News Article (2014-04-18)


Astronomers: 'Tilt-a-worlds' could harbor life
A fluctuating tilt in a planet's orbit does not preclude the possibility of life, according to new research by astronomers at the University of Washington, Utah's Weber State University and NASA. In fact, sometimes it helps. View News Article (2014-04-16)


Odd Tilts Could Make More Worlds Habitable
Pivoting planets that lean one way and then change orientation within a short geological time period might be surprisingly habitable, according to new modeling by NASA and university scientists affiliated with the NASA Astrobiology Institute. View News Article (2014-04-16)


Bacteria Get New Badge as Planet's Detoxifier
A study published this week in PLOS ONE authored by Dr. Henry Sun and his postdoctoral student Dr. Gaosen Zhang of Nevada based research institute DRI provides new evidence that Earth bacteria can do something that is quite unusual. Despite the fact that these bacteria are made of left-handed (L) amino acids, they are able to grow on right-handed (D) amino acids. View News Article (2014-04-04)


Robotic arm probes chemistry of 3-D objects by mass spectrometry
When life on Earth was first getting started, simple molecules bonded together into the precursors of modern genetic material. View News Article (2014-03-26)


New Technique Could Be Used to Search Space Dust for Life's Ingredients
While the origin of life remains mysterious, scientists are finding more and more evidence that material created in space and delivered to Earth by comet and meteor impacts could have given a boost to the start of life. Some meteorites supply molecules that can be used as building blocks to make certain kinds of larger molecules that are critical for life. View News Article (2014-02-04)
