Did you hear? Our next Mars rover is targeted to launch in the summer of 2020 and land on the Red Planet in February 2021. The #Mars2020 rover will probe the Martian rocks for evidence of past life. Find out more:: http://go.nasa.gov/29UYxYK

First water, now oxygen.

Chemicals found in Martian rocks by NASA's Curiosity Mars rover suggest the Red Planet once had more oxygen in its atmosphere than it does now.

Imagine a world with rivers of lava and big pools of extremely hot magma. This animation shows one possible scenario for the toasty rocky exoplanet 55 Cancri e, nearly two times the size of Earth. Observations from our Spitzer Space Telescope have led to the first temperature map of this planet. The map reveals extreme temperature swings from one side of the planet to the other, and hints that a possible reason for this is the presence of lava flows. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1RLLh35

Low-frequency #gravitationalwaves could soon be detectable by existing radio telescopes.
Monitoring a vast network of rapidly spinning pulsars is key to finding very-low-frequency gravitational waves, researchers say.

Deep dive: +NASA’s #Juno mission will peer deep beneath #Jupiter’s clouds and map its magnetic field.
NASA's Juno spacecraft, arriving at Jupiter on July 4, will begin to unravel some of the planet's greatest mysteries, including the origin of its massive magnetosphere.

In an era when access to information has never been greater it seems that large sections of the electorate are politically ignorant.

Is this disinterest an extension of individual stupidity and laziness? Or is an apathetic response to politics an entirely rational one?

Ilya Somin explains why political ignorance is a problem for democracies and how might it be mitigated.

Scientists say the 'R' in RNA may be abundant in space - New research suggests that the sugar ribose - the "R" in RNA - is probably found in comets and asteroids that zip through the solar system and may be more abundant throughout the universe than was previously thought.

#JPL researchers are working on an experiment that could create the coldest place in the universe.
The Cold Atom Laboratory will forge "fluffy molecules" and probe the wonders of quantum physics when it launches to the International Space Station next year.
