Berkeley students flip, float and experiment on zero gravity flight
Last week, two teams of UC Berkeley researchers had the opportunity to test their experiments - and stomachs - aboard ZERO-G's G-Force One , an aircraft that flies in a series of parabolic arcs to mimic the zero gravity conditions of space flight. During the flight, which took off and landed at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on May 10, the researchers worked alongside other teams from around the country to test new technologies that could be used on future space missions.

The lonely fate of a robot on Mars
Science, Health & Technology Erik Rolfsen Covered in the red dust that sealed its fate, the NASA InSight lander is slowly shutting down, more than 250 million kilometres from home. With its solar panels now obscured by the red planet's debris, the four-year-old robot is running out of power. One by one, its instruments are being taken offline: its robotic arm moving into 'retirement pose', its seismometer likely to be turned off sometime in June.
