First Direct Image Of An Exoplanet?
A team of European and US astronomers think they've taken the first direct image of a planet orbiting another star about 230 light-years away. Until now, planets have been discovered because of the effect they have on their parent star - they haven't been "seen" directly - Universe Today
Genesis Data 'Retrieved Intact'
Material has been found still intact inside the crashed Genesis space capsule, say Nasa scientists. Experts said on Friday they hoped the mission to gather solar wind particles could still be largely successful - BBC NEWS
Cassini Discovers Ring And One, Possibly Two, Objects At Saturn
Scientists examining Saturn's contorted F ring, which has baffled them since its discovery, have found one small body, possibly two, orbiting in the F ring region, and a ring of material associated with Saturn's moon Atlas - SpaceDaily
Oxygen Generator Fails On Space Station

Mars May Have Had Large Sea Near Rover Landing Site
Spacecraft observations of the landing area for one of NASA's two Mars rovers now indicate there likely was an enormous sea or lake covering the region in the past, according to a new University of Colorado at Boulder study - Spaceflight Now
Scientists See Exotic Matter In Neutron Star
Scientists have obtained their best measurement yet of the size and contents of a neutron star, an ultra-dense object containing the strangest and rarest matter in the universe. The measurement may lead to a better understanding of nature's building blocks - protons, neutrons and their constituent quarks - as they are compressed inside the neutron star to a density trillions of times greater than on Earth - SpaceDaily
Dying Star Creates Fantasy-Like Sculpture Of Gas And Dust
In this detailed view from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, the so-called Cat's Eye Nebula looks like the penetrating eye of the disembodied sorcerer Sauron from the film adaptation of "The Lord of the Rings." - Spaceflight Now
