ICE FORMATIONS ON Europa EXPLAINED

Astronomers have long been puzzled by the strange cross-hatched patterns

that crisscross Europa's icy surface (Jupiter's second moon). A new theory

from a team at the University of Arizona believe it's caused by massive

tidal swings caused by its interaction with Jupiter's immense gravity.

This theory adds weight to the possibility that Europa is covered with

liquid water, and could contain life.

SHUTTLES LAUNCHES DELAYED ALMOST A MONTH

Because the wiring inspections are taking longer than suspected, the next

launch of the Space Shuttle has been delayed almost a full month. The

Discovery Hubble repair mission was originally scheduled to launch

October 28th, but has been pushed back at least to November 19th.

YELLOWSTONE POOLS PROBED FOR LIFE

In an effort to discover the extremes life is capable of surviving, NASA

scientists are planning to plunge a tiny camera into Yellowstone's hot

springs in search of organisms. The pools are well above 65 degrees

Celsius, which scientists believe is the upper threshold capable of

supporting life. Discovery of life here could help support the search

for life in space's hotter places.

NASA CONSIDERS HUMAN WASTE AS FUEL SOURCE

In space every single ounce of weight is precious including, it turns

out, human waste. NASA engineers are working on a process called pyrolysis,

breaking down the waste without oxygen, and then turning it into all

sorts of useful stuff: plastics, rubber, and even rocket fuel.
