HOW HUNGRY ANDROMEDA DESTROYS ITS NEIGHBOURS
New observations of nearby Andromeda Galaxy (aka M31) show that it's been busy gobbling up its close neighbours. Using the Isaac Newton telescope in the Canary Islands, an international team of Astronomers found a faint streak of stars in the outer regions of Andromeda that lead to the galaxy's nearby companion (its latest victim) like a trail of breadcrumbs. This news was published in the journal Nature.
2001 MARS ON Earth SEASON BEGINS
After nine days of delays, explorers from NASA's Haughton-Mars Project and the Mars Society arrived at Haughton Crater on Devon Island in the Canadian Arctic to begin the 2001 season of research. For the next six weeks, a series of teams will test the tools and technology that will eventually help pave the way for a human mission to the planet Mars.

EATING RIGHT ON LONG-DURATION MISSIONS
A new study on nutrition during long-duration spaceflight missions shows that astronauts might not be eating enough to prevent weight loss and other health problems. The study, published in the Journal of Nutrition focused on the health of two NASA astronauts who spent several months on board the Mir space station. The study will help NASA tightly control what future astronauts eat and help offset some of the health conditions that occur during long-duration spaceflight.
