New findings on origin of life
Scientists will report new findings from experiments that simulate the early solar system and the possibilities of finding remnants of life on Mars, Europa and other extraterrestrial bodies during a symposium March 27-28 at the national meeting of the American Chemical Society in San Francisco. (2000-03-26)

Evidence of bacterial life found in deepest-yet Antarctic ice-core
Analysis of an Antarctic ice core suggests that bacteria may live in a fresh-water subglacial lake - an extreme environment that may be Earth's closest analog to a frozen moon of Jupiter. (1999-12-08)

Ice-covered antarctic lake may harbor unknown life
Microbes entirely unknown to science may exist in liquid water in Lake Vostok, thousands of meters beneath the Antarctic ice sheet. That possibility is one of several intriguing mysteries that justify undertaking the logistical challenges of exploring the lake, according to a new report from a workshop funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). (1999-08-03)

Jupiter's moon Ganymede surrounded by an impact-generated dust cloud
A cloud of submicrometer dust grains surrounding Jupiter's moon Ganymede has been discovered by scientists from the United States, Russia and the Max-Planck-Institut für Kernphysik in Heidelberg (Max Planck Institute of Nuclear Physics), Germany (Nature, 10 June 1999). It is the first in situ observation of the formation process leading to the ring systems that surround all giant planets in our solar system. (1999-06-09)

The search for life on Mars begins in Siberia
Russian and NASA scientists will look for life forms in the inhospitable realm of Siberian permafrost. The scientists hope to broaden our understanding of (1999-05-27)

NYU Chemist Supports New Theory For Origin Of Life
In a new paper and book, NYU chemist Robert Shapiro argues that the laws of nature might favor the generation of life throughout the Universe. And he suggests that the hypothesis that life is unique to Earth could prove to be just as implausible as theories of Divine Creation. (1999-05-12)

Searching For Life On Jupiter's Moon Europa
In an invited talk at the AGU, Christopher Chyba with the SETI Institute and a consulting professor at Stanford will summarize evidence that a liquid ocean exists under the ice crust of the Jovian moon, Europa, and will describe the strawman instrument package that has been proposed for the Europa Orbiter, a NASA mission in the early planning stages, that is scheduled for launch in 2003. (1998-12-09)

ASU Geology Team Collects Europa Data
Some of the best evidence yet for existence of a liquid ocean under Europa's surface is being collected and analyzed by Arizona State University scientists this week from pictures being transmitted to Earth by the Galileo spacecraft. (1998-11-09)

University of Washington Prepares For First Graduate Program In Astrobiology To Train Those Who Will Hunt For Life In Outer Space
The University of Washington, with a $2 million National Science Foundation grant, is poised to become the first institution to launch a doctoral program specifically geared to train scientists to search for life on celestial bodies such as Mars or Europa, an icy moon of Jupiter. (1998-09-30)

Researchers Assess Biological Potential Of Mars, Early Earth And Europa
The potential amount of life that could have existed on Mars is tiny compared to the biomass early in Earth's history, say two experts from the University of Colorado at Boulder and Washington University in St. Louis. (1998-08-25)

Life In Antarctic Ice May Compare To Mars
Researchers announced today in the journal Science that bacterial colonies are thriving underneath ice on one of the coldest, driest deserts on Earth, in conditions that might compare to those on Mars or Europa, and may provide insights for life forms that could be found elsewhere in our solar system. (1998-06-25)

ASU Scientists Join NASA Astrobiology Institute
Arizona State University has added Exobiologist Jack Farmer and Cosmochemist Laurie Leshin to its strong, specialized programs in planetary geology, environmental science and materials science to form a world-class Astrobiology Center. NASA has announced that this team will be one of five university participants in its new (1998-05-19)

High Wire Act May Be The Best Way To Explore Europa
Using a tether to grab power from Europa's magnetic field may allow future spacecraft to explore that intriguing moon (1998-03-13)

Clues To Possible Life On Europa May Lie Buried In Antarctic Ice
This week at the NASA/Marshall Space Flight Center, Russian and American scientists are examining ice-cores from Antarctica for life forms that may live deep beneath the polar ice. The nature of these life forms may yield important clues regarding what kinds of organisms may be living in similar environmental conditions on Europa. (1998-03-05)

Detailed Images From Jupiter Moon Europa Point To Slush Below Surface
The latest, most detailed pictures of the Jupiter moon Europa lend more support to the theory that slush or even liquid water lurks beneath the moon's surface. Those pictures were presented and discussed by scientists from Brown University and NASA during a press briefing today on the Brown campus. (1998-03-02)

Science Names Top Ten Breakthroughs Of 1997
In the 19 December 1997 issue of Science, editors offer their picks for the year's top ten scientific breakthroughs. Science's 1997 (1997-12-19)

Waters Of The Worlds Is Theme Of USGS Presentations At Seattle Science Meeting
Water quality and quantity on Earth and the possibility of water on Mars are the topics of presentations by scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey at this week's annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) at theSeattle Convention Center (1997-02-12)

Jupiter's Largest Moon Has Thin Oxygen Atmosphere
A Johns Hopkins-led team using the Hubble Space Telescope has found evidence of a thin oxygen atmosphere on Ganymede, Jupiter's largest moon. The same team previously detected an oxygen atmosphere on Europa, another Jovian moon. The team has also found evidence that Ganymede, like Earth, has polar aurorae. (1996-10-23)
