The giant asteroid Vesta may possess ice buried under its surface, a new study finds. Vesta is the second-largest asteroid in the solar system, a 330-mile-wide titan in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter that is sometimes visible to the naked eye on Earth. The only larger asteroid is Ceres, which is also classified
Researchers find secret, warm oasis beneath Antarctica’s ice that could be home to undiscovered species Deep within Antarctica’s ice caves, a group of scientists may have discovered a secret ecosystem of plants and animals being supported by the warmth of an active volcano. Average year-long temperatures on Ross Island hover around -17C, including six months
China has unveiled plans to build a replica of Mars on a spectacular, sandswept corner of the Tibetan plateau. The 95,000 square-kilometre “simulated Mars station” will be built in Qinghai province’s Haixi Mongolian and Tibetan autonomous prefecture, not far from the westernmost tip of the Great Wall. One section of the “hyper-arid” high-altitude camp will
The Space Weather Prediction Center has upgraded a geomagnetic storm watch for September 6 and 7 to a level only occasionally seen, but scientists say it’s nothing to be too alarmed about.

Neuroscientists who painstakingly map the twists and turns of neural circuitry through the brain are about to see their field expand to an industrial scale. A huge facility set to open in Suzhou, China, next month should transform high-resolution brain mapping, its developers say. Where typical laboratories might use one or two brain-imaging systems, the
