Tracking fishing from space
Satellite data from thousands of high seas fishing vessels over four years illuminate global fishing's scope and pattern - down to single vessels and hourly activity - and hold promise for improving ocean management across the planet.

Waterbeds simulate weightlessness to help Skinsuits combat back pain in space
Waterbeds simulate weightlessness to help Skinsuits combat back pain in space
Astronauts tend to become taller in weightlessness - causing back pain and making it difficult to fit into spacesuits.

Slowed by skimming through the very top of the upper atmosphere, ESA's ExoMars has lowered itself into a planet-hugging orbit and is about ready to begin sniffing the Red Planet for methane. The ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter arrived at Mars in October 2016 to investigate the potentially biological or geological origin of trace gases in the atmosphere.

Some black holes erase your past
Some black holes erase your past
In the real world, your past uniquely determines your future. If a physicist knows how the universe starts out, she can calculate its future for all time and all space. But a UC Berkeley mathematician has found some types of black holes in which this law breaks down. If someone were to venture into one of these relatively benign black holes, they could survive, but their past would be obliterated and they could have an infinite number of possible futures.

Solving the Dark Energy Mystery: A New Assignment for a 45-Year-Old Telescope
Solving the Dark Energy Mystery: A New Assignment for a 45-Year-Old Telescope
Forty-five years ago this month, a telescope tucked inside a 14-story, 500-ton dome atop a mile-high peak in Arizona took in the night sky for the first time and recorded its observations in glass photographic plates. Today, the dome closes on the previous science chapters of the 4-meter Nicholas U. Mayall Telescope so that it can prepare for its new role in creating the largest 3-D map of the universe.

Freely shared satellite data improves weather forecasting
On Nov. 18, 2017, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and NASA launched the Joint Polar Satellite System , the first in an advanced series of polar-orbiting weather satellites. The new satellite, named NOAA-20 after its launch, continues a legacy of providing scientists and citizens across the world free access to the weather data it collects - without restrictions or encryption.

Astronomy: a Rotating System of Satellite Galaxies Raises Questions
Astronomers have examined the distribution and movement of dwarf galaxies in the constellation Centaurus, but their observations do not fit with the standard model of cosmology that assumes the existence of dark matter. The international team of researchers led by the University of Basel reported their findings .
