Mars Rovers Break Driving Records, Examine Salty Soil
On three consecutive days, NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity accomplished unprecedented feats of martian motion, covering more total ground in that period than either Opportunity or its twin, Spirit, did in their first 70 days on Mars - NASA/JPL
Radio Pulses Could Signal New Class Of Astronomical Object
A survey of our galaxy's center has turned up evidence of what may be a new class of astronomical object. According to results published today [Mar. 3] in the journal Nature, scientists have detected an unusual burst of radio waves emanating from near the galactic center with characteristics that are unlike those of previously detected radio bursts - Nature

Moonbeams Shine On Einstein, Galileo And Newton
Thirty-five years after Moon-walking astronauts placed special reflectors on the lunar surface, scientists have used these devices to test Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity to unprecedented accuracy - NASA/JPL
NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope Exposes Dusty Galactic Hideouts
How do you hide something as big and bright as a galaxy? You smother it in cosmic dust. NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope saw through such dust to uncover a hidden population of monstrously bright galaxies approximately 11 billion light-years away - Spitzer Science Center
Twin Mars Rovers In Instrument Mix-Up
NASA's Mars rovers Opportunity and Spirit are identical twins - so alike that they even fooled NASA. Researchers have discovered that they sent the robots to Mars with an instrument meant for Opportunity inside Spirit and vice versa - New Scientist
