A new level of variation in messenger RNAs exposed Like musicians in an orchestra who have the same musical score but start and finish playing at different intervals, cells with the same genes start and finish transcribing them at different points in the genome. For the first time, researchers at EMBL have described the striking diversity of messenger RNAs (mRNAs) that such start and end variation produces, even from the simple genome of yeast cells. Their findings, published today in...

Three Coronal Mass Ejections And A Solar Flare In Three Days On The Sun
2013-04-22 11:25:57

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online NASA´s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) recorded a coronal mass ejection (CME) on Saturday April 20, 2013, at 2:54 a.m. EDT. That was only to be the first of three such events over the course of the weekend. CME´s, solar phenomena that send billions of tons of solar particles and radiation speeding through space at over 500 miles per second, have the potential to affect communication systems and electronics here and in...

Mercury May Have Hosted A Magma Ocean In Its Past
2013-02-21 13:29:25

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists analyzing data from NASA's MESSENGER spacecraft say that Mercury once harbored an ancient magma ocean. An MIT team of scientists say that Mercury may have had a large ocean of magma very early in its history, shortly after its formation about 4.5 billion years ago. A group of scientists analyzed X-ray fluorescence data from MESSENGER collected back in 2011. They were able to identify two distinct compositions of rocks on...

Enid Burns for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online This week Microsoft outlined its plans to move users of its Messenger platform over to Skype. Microsoft originally planned to retire Messenger in all countries except mainland China by the end of the first quarter of 2013. However, it now appears that the transition may take a little longer than originally stated. Plans for the switchover were detailed by Mary Jo Foley for All About Microsoft on ZDNet. Microsoft executives now...

Step Outside And See Mercury At Sunset

NASA Science NASA has recently discovered a very strange planet. Its days are twice as long as its years. It has a tail like a comet. It is hot enough to melt lead, yet capped by deposits of ice. And to top it all off ... it appears to be pink. The planet is Mercury. Of course, astronomers have known about Mercury for thousands of years, but since NASA's MESSENGER probe went into orbit around Mercury in 2011, researchers feel like they've been discovering the innermost planet all...

The Planet Mercury -- in astronomy, nearest planet to the sun, at a mean distance of 36 million mi (58 million km); its period of revolution is 88 days. Mercury passes through phases similar to those of the moon as it completes each revolution about the sun, although the visible disk varies in size with respect to its distance from the earth. Because its greatest elongation is 28, it is seen only for a short time after sunset or before sunrise. Since observation of Mercury is...
