NEW SIMULATION FOR OUR MOON'S ORIGINS

A new computer simulation of the Moon's formation predicts that it might be much younger than scientists originally believed. This new simulation, developed at universities in the United States, shows how a Mars-sized object struck the Earth 4.5 billion years ago, and ejected a hail of material which eventually eventually formed the Moon. This story was published in the journal Nature.

MORE SUPPORT FOR theory OF LIFE FROM SPACE DUST

Polish scientists announced today that they have created biological molecules by zapping space dust with a high-energy laser. They believe that the dust, radiated in space to form a building block of life, would stand a good chance of passing through the Earth's atmosphere without burning up. This theory supports the recently reported discovery of biological material in the high atmosphere by an Indian team of scientists. It is estimated that nearly 3,000 tonnes of space dust enter the Earth every day.

JUPITER-SIZED planet DISCOVERED

A team of Astronomers reported today that they have found a Jupiter-sized planet orbiting around a sun-like star in the Big Dipper constellation. The planet is the second found orbiting star 47 Ursae Majoris, and the Astronomers believe it orbits at a similar distance to the planet Mars in our own Solar System. Astronomers have now discovered over 70 planets orbiting other stars.
