Flecks of Extraterrestrial Dust, All Over the Roof

Fri, 10 Mar 2017 16:24:00 GMT

Varieties of space dust, barely the width of a human hair. These photomicrographs were made with a special camera setup that magnifies the dust grains nearly 3,000 times.A jazz musician from Norway hunted bits of cosmic debris for eight years and found it everywhere. Turns out, tons of it land every day.

Trilobites: Freeze-Dried Mouse Sperm Survives Trip in Space

Mon, 22 May 2017 19:00:28 GMT

Mouse sperm, freeze-dried and in flown space for nine months, was successfully used to fertilize eggs, creating healthy litters of “space pups,” researchers from Japan are reporting.Although tests did find slightly increased DNA damage, compared with freeze-dried earth sperm, the space version did the job when it came to fertilizing eggs.
