How Wheel Damage Affects Mars Rover Curiosity's Mission.

The 1-ton robot has accumulated quite a bit of wheel damage since touching down inside Gale Crater in August 2012 to investigate Mars' past and present potential to host microbial life. But the damage has not imperiled the rover's mission, said Curiosity's handlers, who are employing a number of troubleshooting measures to keep the robot rolling along.

ça manque peut être d'alcool le programme des " glues de soudures pour des grilles de cages de maintiens à des crampons de " Rovers #NASA ... il en faut quand même un peu pour le methyl du zinc qui est au centre de considérations à la minéralogie nécessaire à la résistance aux changements de pressions atmosphériques géologiques ; ils auraient pu y penser entre deux cocktails ...

A team of astrobiologists led by SETI Institute's Nathalie Cabrol recorded the highest level of UV radiation from the Sun yet known at the Earth’s surface. The measurements were taken by astrobiologists studying high-altitude lakes near the Licancabur volcano as part of the High Lakes Project.

David Black, president and CEO of the SETI Institute, commented, “This is an excellent example of how astrobiology — which includes understanding the atmospheres of other planets — is germane to contemporary concerns here on Earth.” Learn more here: http://buff.ly/1jfgiSg

SETI Institute's Jill Tarter Awarded the 2014 Jansky Lectureship

The Karl G. Jansky Lectureship is an honor established by the trustees of Associated Universities, Inc., to recognize outstanding contributions to the advancement of radio astronomy. First awarded in 1966, it is named in honor of the man who, in 1932, first detected radio waves from a cosmic source. Karl Jansky's discovery of radio waves from the central region of our Milky Way Galaxy started the science of radio astronomy.

Jill Tarter will present the annual Karl G. Jansky Lecture in Charlottesville, Virginia and in Socorro, New Mexico. Dates TBD. Details: http://buff.ly/1suY53v

Something is amiss in the Universe. There appears to be an enormous deficit of ultraviolet light in the cosmic budget. The vast reaches of empty space between galaxies are bridged by tendrils of hydrogen and helium, which can be used as a precise 'light meter.' In a recent study a team of scientists finds that the light from known populations of galaxies and quasars is not nearly enough to explain observations of intergalactic hydrogen. The difference is a stunning 400 percent. Learn more here: http://buff.ly/1k3ZRUb

Are the sensors operating properly? Since we are looking out perhaps a different wavelength is blocking or filtering our view? Or perhaps these empty or not so empty spaces have reached a stage of developement that we dont fully understand yet.

Check out this new picture of Europa processed by SETI Institute's Cynthia Phillips and team.

This colorized image of Europa is a product of clear-filter grayscale data from one orbit of the Galileo spacecraft, combined with lower-resolution color data taken on a different orbit. The blue-white terrains indicate relatively pure water ice. The reddish areas contain water ice mixed with hydrated salts, potentially magnesium sulfate or sulfuric acid. The reddish material is associated with the broad band in the center of the image, as well as some of the narrower bands, ridges, and disrupted chaos-type features. It is possible that these surface features may have communicated with a global subsurface ocean layer during or after their formation. More here: http://buff.ly/1qTOJAH

Hi-ho! Astronomers discover seven dwarf galaxies with new telescope

Meet the seven new dwarf galaxies. Astronomers, using a new type of telescope made by stitching together telephoto lenses, recently discovered seven celestial surprises while probing a nearby spiral galaxy. The previously unseen galaxies may yield important insights into dark matter and galaxy evolution, while possibly signaling the discovery of a new class of objects in space.

Love it! Did they name them after the 7 dwarfs? Could swear one of those galaxies look pretty dopey!

Stretching forces may have shaped Jupiter moon's surface.

Processes that shaped the ridges and troughs on the surface of Jupiter's icy moon Ganymede are likely similar to tectonic processes seen on Earth, according to a team of researchers. To arrive at this conclusion, the team subjected physical models made of clay to stretching forces that simulate tectonic action. Learn more here: http://buff.ly/TTELAG

NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft has experienced a new "tsunami wave" from the sun as it sails through interstellar space. Such waves are what led scientists to the conclusion, in the fall of 2013, that Voyager had indeed left our sun's bubble, entering a new frontier.

Data from this newest tsunami wave generated by our sun confirm that Voyager is in interstellar space -- a region between the stars filled with a thin soup of charged particles, also known as plasma. The mission has not left the solar system -- it has yet to reach a final halo of comets surrounding our sun -- but it broke through the wind-blown bubble, or heliosphere, encasing our sun. Voyager is the farthest human-made probe from Earth, and the first to enter the vast sea between stars. Learn more here: http://buff.ly/TREgHi

An international research team led by the SETI Institute’s Nathalie Cabrol has measured the highest level of solar ultraviolet ever recorded on Earth. The measures were made in the Andes mountains, where Cabrol studies environments that are analogs for Mars.

While there are many factors that could account for the high UV flux – which reached levels that are five times what you would experience at the beach – many of them point to a thinning of the ozone layer. Given the danger of increased ultraviolet, it’s clear that more extensive monitoring is essential.

In other words, "you best slather that damn sunblock all ova that face, else I'm gonna slap it so hard your eyeballs going be flying right thru the ozone and into space, you hear me?"

Our mission is to explore, understand and explain the origin, nature and prevalence of life in the universe.
Introduction

We believe we are conducting the most profound search in human history — to know our beginnings and our place among the stars.

The SETI Institute is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to scientific research, education and public outreach.

The Institute comprises 3 centers, the Center for SETI Research, the Carl Sagan Center for the Study of Life in the Universe and the Center for Education and Public Outreach.

Founded in November 1984, the SETI Institute began operations on February 1, 1985. Today it employs over 120 scientists, educators and support staff. Research at the Institute is anchored by two centers. Dr. Gerry Harp leads the Center for SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Research and  Dr. David Morrison is the Director for the Carl Sagan Center for the Study of Life in the Universe. Edna DeVore leads our Center for Education and Public Outreach.
