Philae Settles in Dust-Covered Ice

Before going into hibernation in the early hours of 15 November 2014, the Philae lander was able to conduct experiments and return its data to Earth. In this blog post we look at the preliminary analysis conducted by the landersMulti-Purpose Sensors for Surface and Subsurface Science instrument package, MUPUS. MUPUS began observing the environment around Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko once Philae was released from the Rosetta orbiter at 08:35 GMT on 12 November (this is spacecraft time; the signal confirming separation arrived at Earth just over 28 minutes later, at 09:03 GMT)

New ocean telecom cables should be ‘green’ The system ofsubmarine telecommunications that connects the world together represents a missed opportunity for tsunami warning, according to university scientists and a United Nations task force.

UN task force: Ocean telecom cables should be green

The global system of submarine telecommunication cables that support our connected world is deaf, dumb and blind to the external ocean environment and represents a major missed opportunity for tsunami warning and global climate monitoring, according to University of Hawaii scientists and a United Nations task force. For an additional 5 to 10 percent of the total cost of any new cable system deployment, we could be saving lives from tsunamis and effectively monitoring global change, said UH-Manoas Rhett Butler, director of the Hawaii Institute of Geophysics and Planetology and chairman of an international committee tasked to evaluate the cable opportunity

Ebola vaccine trials to be tested as early as December Ebola vaccine trials could begin in West-Africa in December, public health authorities said Friday, and could know by April whether the vaccine is effective or not. According to Marie-Paule Keiny of the World Health Organization, the trials in December would be a month earlier than originally planned. At least five other vaccines could enter human testing in the first few months of 2015

Hubble Maps the Temperature and Water Vapor on an Exoplanet

Contact Information Available for logged-in reporters only Newswise A team of scientists using NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has made the most detailed global map yet of the glow from a planet orbiting another star, revealing secrets of air temperatures and water. The map provides information about temperatures at different layers of the world’s atmosphere and traces the amount and distribution of water vapor on the planet.

Hubble project maps temperature, water vapor on wild exoplanet

A team of scientists including a University of Colorado Boulder professor used NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope to make the most detailed global map yet of the glow from a giant, oddball planet orbiting another star, an object twice as massive as Jupiter and hot enough to melt steel. The Hubble observations show that the planet, called WASP-43b, is no place to call home. It’s a world of extremes, where winds howl at the speed of sound from a 3,000-degree-Fahrenheit dayside to a pitch-black nightside when temperatures plunge to a relatively cool 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit, still hot enough to melt silver.

Water on earth originated outside the solar system, scientists prove

Human beings have always obsessed over whether they are alone in the universe. Now scientists say theyve proved that at least some of the water on Earth has to have originated from outside the solar system (and they add that its older than the sun). The news has set the flying-saucer-sphere abuzz with the thought that other planets in the universe are therefore more likely to have had water, at some stage at least, and to therefore have developed life

Oxygen In Exoplanet Atmospheres Could Fool Search For Life

Oxygen is a signal of life on our own planet, but that’s not necessarily the case elsewhere. Particularly when it comes to young planets, signs of oxygen do not necessarily indicate the presence of biological processes, new research argues. Water vapor in the upper atmosphere of a young planet could break into hydrogen and oxygen by incoming ultraviolet and extreme ultraviolet rays from the parent star

Regolith of small asteroids formed by thermal fatigue

The centimeter-sized fragments and smaller particles that make up the regolith — the layer of loose, unconsolidated rock and dust — of small asteroids is formed by temperature cycling that breaks down rock in a process called thermal fatigue, according to a paper published today in the Nature Advance Online Publication.
