I'd like to thank the Kent earthquake this week that helped inspire my blog post for Sen! ($)
Quakes do not occur just on Earth. Seismic activity has been detected also on the Moon and Mars, helping planetary scientists learn how these rocky worlds formed.

A piece I wrote for Sen.
Astronomers have used a planet-seeking device to make the first direct observation of the spectrum of visible light reflected from an exoplanet.

This one's by Dwane Doyle.
A team of astronomers from the UK, the USA, and Chile have found that a fairly run-of-the-mill galaxy is much more energetic than previously believed.

Go stargazing from orbit . . . without leaving the ground!
Go stargazing from orbit by checking out video of the European Space Agency's fifth and final ATV cargo ship, Georges Lemaitre, departing from the International Space Station.

My story today for +sen about the discovery that volcanic activity continued on the Moon until relatively recently in geological terms.
New study shows Moon was volcanically active for longer. Paul Sutherland, News Editor 13 October 2014, 07:10. Sen—The Moon is generally considered to have long been a cold and dead world, but new research suggests that volcanic activity occurred within the relatively recent past.

My story for +sen today is about the discovery that our Milky Way is part of a vast supercluster of galaxies.

More great results from Rosetta at Comet 67P.
Europe’s Rosetta space probe has caught the moment a new jet of dust was ejected from the comet it is accompanying into the inner Solar System, and presented scientists with something of a puzzle.

My story for Sen.
Hopes that extraterrestrial life might exist on Tau Ceti, a Sun-like star that is one of the closest to Earth, appear to have been dashed by a new study.

My story for +sen today.
The death of Star Trek legend Leonard Nimoy not only brought great sadness to legions of fans of the fictional Mr Spock. Tributes poured in too from people involved in the real business of space exploration, both on the ground and in orbit.

My report for +sen on ESA's awesome scifi movie short in honour of the Rosetta mission.
The European Space Agency has surprised many by turning to science fiction as the latest ploy to promote its remarkable Rosetta mission to Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.

My report for +sen on confirmation of the landing site for Rosetta's companion probe Philae on Comet 67P.
Part of the side of the spacecraft and a solar wing are visible in this "selfie" image of Comet 67P taken by Philae on 7 October. Dust and gas can be seen streaming from the nucleus. Image credit: ESA/Rosetta/Philae/CIVA. article image ...

The longest stream of gas found in the Universe!
The longest ever stream of hydrogen has been discovered acting as a bridge between galaxies 500 light years away.

I wonder what name our comedians will come up with if they ever equate this gas to human anatomy?  Thanks for sharing.
