Signs of ancient flowing water on Mars
Signs of ancient flowing water on Mars
These images from ESA's Mars Express satellite show a branching, desiccated system of trenches and valleys, signs of ancient water flow that hint at a warmer, wetter past for the Red Planet. We see Mars as a cold, dry world, but plenty of evidence suggests that this was not always the case. Research in past years instead increasingly indicates that the planet once had a thicker, denser atmosphere that was able to lock in far greater amounts of warmth, and therefore facilitate and support the flow of liquid water on the surface below.

Achieving greater efficiency for fast data center operations
Achieving greater efficiency for fast data center operations
System better allocates time-sensitive data processing across cores to maintain quick user-response times. Today's data centers eat up and waste a good amount of energy responding to user requests as fast as possible, with only a few microseconds delay. A new system by MIT researchers improves the efficiency of high-speed operations by better assigning time-sensitive data processing across central processing unit (CPU) cores and ensuring hardware runs productively.

JPL News: In Colliding Galaxies, a Pipsqueak Shines Bright
In the nearby Whirlpool galaxy and its companion galaxy, M51b, two supermassive black holes heat up and devour surrounding material. These two monsters should be the most luminous X-ray sources in sight, but a new study using observations from  NuSTAR  (Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array)-a Caltech-led mission managed by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which is managed by Caltech for NASA-shows that a much smaller object is competing with the two behemoths.
