Robot-based system developed at Carnegie Mellon detects life in Chile's Atacama desert

...igation aspects of the project. Nathalie Cabrol, a planetary scientist at NASA's Ames Research Center and the SETI Institute, leads the science investigation. Life is barely discernable over most areas of the Atacama, but the rover's instruments were able to detect lichens and bacterial colonies in two areas:...

Map of life on Earth could be used on Mars

...ington University assistant professor of earth and planetary sciences in Arts & Sciences, has some insight concerning terrestrial microbes that could lead to provocative conclusions about the nature of life on Mars and other planets. Blank approaches the task by resolving phylogenetic trees. These trees, ...

Proteomics brings researchers closer to understanding microbes that produce acid mine drainage

... team leader Jill Banfield, professor of earth and planetary science and of environmental science, policy and management at UC Berkeley. This technique not only tells her and her colleagues what genes are expressed as proteins in each bacteria, but also how much of each is produced - the key to understanding ...

MERIS monitoring tracks planetary photosynthesis levels

... is used to monitor the state and evolution of the planetary vegetation cover. In particular the instrument's standard Level-2 product on land, known as the MERIS Global Vegetation Index (MGVI) provides FAPAR values based on reflected radiation from the Earth's land surface. EC-JRC is responsible for the proce...

Evolution of life on Earth may hold key to finding life in outer space

...ganisms that can be conducted robotically on other planetary bodies, including Mars. Fox earned his bachelor's degree and his doctorate in chemical engineering from Syracuse University. Coming to UH in 1977, Fox has held numerous positions and, in addition to being a professor of biology and biochemistry in t...

Science's Breakthrough of the Year: Watching evolution in action

...id, Saturn, and the very edge of the solar system, planetary discovery soared in 2005. The high point in a year of highlights may be the landing of the European spacecraft Huygens on Titan, Saturn's largest moon. Huygens' trip to Titan revealed a world where infrequent but drenching rains of liquid methane sha...

New maps reveal true extent of human footprint on Earth

...onnect' between global, top-down views of changing planetary conditions, and the local, bottom-up perspective of how humans affect and live in a changing environment," says Jonathan Foley, director of SAGE. To help bridge that gap, SAGE researchers are working towards a new "Earth Collaboratory," an unpreced...

Alleged 40,000-year-old human footprints in Mexico much, much older than thought

...ology Center and an adjunct professor of earth and planetary science at UC Berkeley, and his colleagues in Mexico and at Texas A&M University report in the Dec. 1 issue of Nature a new age for the rock: about 1.3 million years.
