Hot, dense material surrounds O-type star with largest magnetic field known
Observations using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory revealed that the unusually large magnetosphere around an O-type star called NGC 1624-2 contains a raging storm of extreme stellar winds and dense plasma that gobbles up X-rays before they can escape into space.  View News Article (2015-09-23)

Inspired by venus flytrap, researchers develop folding 'snap' geometry
Inspired by natural "snapping" systems like Venus flytrap leaves and hummingbird beaks, a team led by physicist Christian Santangelo at the University of Massachusetts Amherst has developed a way to use curved creases to give thin curved shells a fast, programmable snapping motion. View News Article (2015-08-24)

NASA simulation indicates ancient flood volcanoes could have altered climate
In June, 1991, Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines exploded, blasting millions of tons of ash and gas over 20 miles high - deep into the stratosphere, a stable layer of our atmosphere above most of the clouds and weather.  View News Article (2015-08-10)

Why we live on Earth and not Venus
Compared to its celestial neighbours Venus and Mars, Earth is a pretty habitable place. So how did we get so lucky? A new study sheds light on the improbable evolutionary path that enabled Earth to sustain life.  View News Article (2015-07-22)

Study suggests active volcanism on Venus
An international team of scientists has found some of the best evidence yet that Venus, Earth's nearest neighbor, is volcanically active. View News Article (2015-06-19)

NASA study finds small solar eruptions can have profound effects on unprotected planets
While no one yet knows what's needed to build a habitable planet, it's clear that the interplay between the sun and Earth is crucial for making our planet livable - a balance between a sun that provides energy and a planet that can protect itself from the harshest solar emissions. View News Article (2015-04-10)

Sea sponge anchors are natural models of strength
Life may seem precarious for the sea sponge known as Venus' flower basket.  View News Article (2015-04-07)

Venus, if you will, as seen in radar with the GBT
From earthbound optical telescopes, the surface of Venus is shrouded beneath thick clouds made mostly of carbon dioxide. View News Article (2015-03-10)

Gender roles: Men and women are not so different after all
Gender is a large part of our identity that is often defined by our psychological differences as men and women. Not surprisingly, those differences are reflected in many gender stereotypes - men rarely share their feelings, while women are more emotional - but an Iowa State University researcher says in reality men and women are more alike than we may think. View News Article (2015-01-29)
