Against-the-clock Rehearsal For International Space Station Immunology Test
2013-04-25 16:42:03

ESA Simply getting anything into space is tough, but doing so against a strict deadline can be really stressful. Researchers in an ESA laboratory nervously checked the clock as they extracted immune cells — beginning a full dress rehearsal to prepare a time-critical experiment for launch. An international team led by a NASA astronaut gathered at ESA´s Life and Physical Sciences and Life Support Laboratory at ESTEC technical centre in Noordwijk, the Netherlands, earlier this...

U.S. scientists have used a supercomputer to calculate the iron isotope distribution in Earth's mantle that occurred 4.5 billion years ago. University of California-Davis geochemists said they simulated the conditions that would have existed when the Earth crystallized from an ocean of magma to its solid form, producing the first picture of how different isotopes of iron were initially distributed in the solid Earth. The scientists said their research could result in a wave of investigations...

Before life emerged on earth, either a primitive kind of metabolism or an RNA-like duplicating machinery must have set the stage "“ so experts believe. But what preceded these pre-life steps? A pair of UCSF scientists has developed a model explaining how simple chemical and physical processes may have laid the foundation for life. Like all useful models, theirs can be tested, and they describe how this can be done. Their model is based on simple, well-known chemical and physical laws....

Earth science (or geoscience) is the science of the planet Earth. Earth science can be broken down into four major disciplines, which are: geography, geology, geophysics, and geodesy. These disciplines use physics, chemistry, biology, chronology and mathematics to arrive to a greater understanding of the principal areas of the Earth system. Since Earth is the only known life-bearing planet, Earth science is solely dedicated to the geophysical makeup of our own planet. One discipline,...
