Odd Planet Reaches Searing 1,200 Degrees Seth Borenstein, Associated Press Astronomers have found a planet with a galactic case of hot flashes. In just six hours, this planet four times the size of Jupiter heats up by more than 1,200 degrees, according to a study published in Thursday’s issue of the journal Nature. “It’s the first observation of changing weather” on a planet outside our solar system, said study author Gregory Laughlin, an astronomy professor at the University of California at Santa Cruz. He used

Antarctica’s 15-Million Year-Old Lake -A Living Bio Lab? Casey Kazan. Researchers have thawed ice estimated to be perhaps a million years old or more from above Lake Vostok, an ancient lake that lies hidden more than two miles beneath the frozen surface of Antarctica using novel genomic techniques to determine how tiny, living “time capsules” survived the ages in total darkness, in freezing cold, and without food and energy from the sun.

Scientists plan to ignite tiny man-made star by using the National Ignition Facility. By Richard Gray, Science Correspondent Last Updated: 4:50PM GMT 27 Dec 2008 It is science’s star experiment: an attempt to create an artificial sun on earth — and provide an answer to the world’s impending energy shortage. While it has seemed an impossible goal for nearly 100 years, scientists now believe that they are on brink of cracking one of the biggest problems in physics by harnessing the power of nuclear fusion,
