My report on the findings of organic compounds on Comet 67P.
The Philae lander has identified complex molecules on the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenkom dating from the early Solar System, that could have been ingredients in the recipe that delivered life to our planet.

My report of today's New Horizons flyby of Pluto.
NASA's New Horizons reaches the climax of its nine-year, five billion km journey today when it makes its closest approach to Pluto, racing past the dwarf planet and its system of five moons.
