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.

Albert Einstein predicted the existence of gravitational waves a century ago. Now, the detection of these waves has been announced. Scientists are interested in observing and characterizing gravitational waves to learn more about the sources producing them and about gravity itself.

Carbon-based fuels could soon be replaced by electric power in new alternative commercial aircraft designs. This would reduce energy consumption, emissions and noise. Learn more about our aeronautic research: http://go.nasa.gov/1O9o8H5

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.

#space   #technology   #clock  

Set your alarm for a live talk on Thursday, Jan. 14, about the ultra-precise Deep Space Atomic Clock, launching later this year. This technology will boost future deep space communications.
