Red Tape Hinders Study of Asteroid Impacts on Earth
At issue is the ability to combine space data with outputs from a global network of seismic, infrasound and hydroacoustic sensors that have been deployed worldwide to provide treaty verification for a nuclear test ban.

Separados en el lanzamiento: la NASA estudiará a astronautas gemelos
En 2015, con la ayuda de los únicos astronautas gemelos del mundo, la NASA llevará a cabo un experimento sin precedentes en el campo de la biología humana. Mientras que uno de los gemelos permanecerá en tierra firme, el otro viajará alrededor de la Tierra a bordo de la Estación Espacial Internacional durante un año completo. ¿Serán los gemelos aún idénticos cuando se reúnan? La respuesta podría ayudar a la NASA a hacer que los viajes espaciales sean más seguros para las generaciones futuras de astronautas.
Se descubrió una posible luna en formación alrededor de Saturno
La nave espacial Cassini, de la NASA, ha documentado la formación de un pequeño objeto cubierto de hielo dentro de los anillos de Saturno, lo que podría ser una nueva luna.
Se detectó un océano profundo en el interior de la luna de Saturno
La nave espacial Cassini y la Red del Espacio Profundo, de la NASA, han descubierto evidencia de que Encelado, la luna de Saturno, alberga un enorme océano subterráneo, lo que alienta el interés científico en la luna como un posible hogar para microbios extraterrestres.

New Study Outlines 'Water World' Theory of Life's Origins
Pasadena CA (JPL) Apr 19, 2014
Life took root more than four billion years ago on our nascent Earth, a wetter and harsher place than now, bathed in sizzling ultraviolet rays. What started out as simple cells ultimately transformed into slime molds, frogs, elephants, humans and the rest of our planet's living kingdoms. How did it all begin?A new study from researchers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Cal
New Self-healing Plastics Developed
Karlsruhe, Germany (SPX) Apr 17, 2014
Scratches in the car finish or cracks in polymer material: Self-healing materials can repair themselves by restoring their initial molecular structure after the damage. Scientists of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and Evonik Industries have developed a chemical crosslinking reaction that ensures good short-term healing properties of the material under mild heating. The research results ha
RoboClam" hits new depths as robotic digger
London, UK (SPX) Apr 17, 2014
A digging robot inspired by the unique mechanisms employed by the Atlantic razor clam has been created by a group of researchers in the US. The robot, dubbed RoboClam, is able to dig with extreme efficiency by transforming the surrounding soil from a solid into a liquid, and could have a variety of applications from anchoring underwater robots to subsea cable installation and mine neutralization
Scientists Capture Ultrafast Snapshots of Light-Driven Superconductivity
Upton NY (SPX) Apr 17, 2014
A new study pins down a major factor behind the appearance of superconductivity-the ability to conduct electricity with 100 percent efficiency-in a promising copper-oxide material.Scientists used carefully timed pairs of laser pulses at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory's Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) to trigger superconductivity in the material and immediately take x-ray snapshot
