Spirit Rover Could Have Found Salty Brine.

NASA's Spirit rover has discovered an unusual patch of sand in a hollow on its journey to the crater "Bonneville". An unusual pattern of irregular lines and polygons in the soil could indicate the presence of a salty brine. This could mean there's liquid water right below the surface of Mars, which could harbour life - microbes thrive in similar environments on Earth. The rover dug a trench and examined the spot with its array of instruments, which scientists will study intensely back on Earth.

Indian Accident Claims Six Lives.

More details have emerged about Monday's deadly fire at a solid rocket processing plant in India. Nine employees were working on a segment of a test motor at the Solid Propellant Space Booster Plant at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre. The team was in the final stage of removing fixtures from a recently-built motor when it exploded. Six were killed in the explosion and following fire, and three more escaped with burns. A committee has been appointed to uncover the events that led to the disaster.

Rosetta Set to Reveal Comet Mysteries.

The European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft is all set to begin its 10-year odyssey to meet up with Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The meeting point is at a spot 675 million kilometres from the Sun, when the Comet is at the furthest point along its orbit - the Comet will barely be active. As the Comet approaches the Sun, it will become active; its ices will evaporate, and small chunks will fly off the surface. Throughout the process, Rosetta will get a close-up look at an object that was formed with the beginning of the solar system. If all goes well, Rosetta will lift off on an Ariane 5 booster on February 26.
