Washington, Apr 28 (IBNS): Since the earliest days of our solar system’s history, asteroid impacts have shaped the planets and contributed to their evolution. New research funded by NASA shows that Mars experienced ten times fewer giant impacts than some previous estimates.

CERN, American Physical Society sign open access agreement for SC...
Geneva, Apr 27 (IBNS) The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) and the American Physical Society (APS) signed an agreement on Thursday for SCOAP3 – the Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics.
New ALICE experiment results show novel phenomena in proton colli...
Geneva, Apr 24 (IBNS): In a paper published today in Nature Physics, the ALICE collaboration reports that proton collisions sometimes present similar patterns to those observed in the collisions of heavy nuclei. This behaviour was spotted through observation of so-called strange hadrons in certain proton collisions in which a large number of particles are created.
Researchers trying to detect life in the ultra-dry Atacama Desert
Washington, Apr 21 (IBNS): Few places are as hostile to life as Chile's Atacama Desert. It's the driest non-polar desert on Earth, and only the hardiest microbes survive there. Its rocky landscape has lain undisturbed for eons, exposed to extreme temperatures and radiation from the sun.
NASA radar spots relatively large Asteroid prior to flyby
Washington, Apr 19 (IBNS): Radar images of asteroid 2014 JO25 were obtained in the early morning hours on Tuesday, with NASA's 70-meter (230-foot) antenna at the Goldstone Deep Space Communications Complex in California.
Asteroid to fly safely past Earth today, says NASA
Washington, Apr 19 (IBNS): A relatively large near-Earth asteroid discovered nearly three years ago will fly safely past Earth on Apr 19 at a distance of about 1.1 million miles (1.8 million kilometers), or about 4.6 times the distance from Earth to the moon, said astronomers.
NASA Space Station cargo launches aboard orbital ATK resupply mis...
Washington, Apr 19 (IBNS): The International Space Station will be capable of dozens of new scientific investigations from NASA and around the world when Orbital ATK's Cygnus spacecraft delivers more than 7,600 pounds of cargo Saturday, April 22.
Glacier shape influences susceptibility to melting
Washington, Apr 18 (IBNS): A new NASA-funded study has identified which glaciers in West Greenland are most susceptible to thinning in the coming decades by analyzing how they’re shaped.
