From Europa to the lab, a new recipe for oxygen on icy moons
Since its discovery on Europa and other icy moons orbiting large gaseous worlds, extraterrestrial ice as a source for oxygen has presented the tantalizing possibility of complex life in frigid reaches far from Earth. Yet planetary scientists have struggled to explain how, in the absence of sufficient heat, oxygen could be produced from the permafrost surfaces. A new experiment offers the most detailed picture to date on how oxygen can be made on icy worlds. (2006-03-27)

Study finds significant gender differences in risk factors for HIV infection among injection drug users
Significant differences exist in the risk factors men and women face for contracting HIV, according a 10-year study of injection drug users. For women, sexual activity is a greater risk factor for contracting HIV than the sharing of needles, visiting drug shooting galleries, or other aspects of the drug-related lifestyle.
