SWIRLING MAGNETIC FIELDS CREATE BEAUTY FROM DESTRUCTION

Beautiful, swirling and chaotic, planetary nebulae provide some of the most stunning views and images in the galaxy. The complicated physics behind those magnificent views has been explained by researchers from the University of Rochester and University of Washington. In discovering how such fantastic views are created, these astrophysicists may also have found the answer to a puzzling feature of White Dwarf stars.

NEW meteorite HELPS EXPLAIN water ON MARS

New evidence about the composition of a Martian meteorite has given researchers new clues about how liquid water could have reached the surface of Mars. Analysis of the Shergotty Martian meteorite indicates that water-rich lava could have spewed out as steam when it erupted onto the surface of the planet. And the meteorite indicates that this type of geological process could have happened as recently as 175 million years ago.

SPACE STATION COMMANDER CHATS WITH STUDENTS AND THE PRESS

In recent group of interviews with students and journalists, space station Alpha's Commander Bill Shepherd explained what life is like on board station - noisy and hectic, but never dull. Three months into their mission as the first residents of the station, the crew is far too busy to get bored. The crew have had their 4-month mission extended another two weeks because of delays with the Space Shuttle Discovery, which will bring them back to Earth.
