Seeing, Touching And Smelling The Extraordinarily Earth-like World Of Titan
The first scientific assessments of Huygens' data were presented during a press conference at ESA head office in Paris on 21 January - ESA, Sky and Telescope
Cassini Finds High-Speed Dust Streaming From Saturn
The Cassini spacecraft has found high-speed streams of dust zipping away from Saturn, astronomers revealed on Wednesday. Similar dust streams have been found emanating from Jupiter, but this is a first for the ringed planet - New Scientist
The Lion's Pumpkin-Shaped Heart
Regulus, the brightest star in Leo the Lion, isn't round, say astronomers. Instead, its rapid spin flattens the star into the shape of a pumpkin - Astronomy

Researchers Develop New Machine For Detecting Signs Of Life On Mars
Scientists continue to explore Mars for elusive signs of life. A new tool should help in the hunt. The Mars Organic Analyzer (MOA) can detect and identify amino acids with 1,000 times greater sensitivity than the Viking probes that landed on the Red Planet in 1976 - Scientific American
Solar System Planetoids Could Be Really Far Out
Large planetoids may have formed hundreds of times farther from the Sun than previously thought, new calculations reveal. The work suggests a vast population of undetected icy bodies - like the recently discovered Sedna - may skirt the fringes of the solar system - New Scientist
Weighing The Smallest Stars
Thanks to the powerful new high-contrast camera installed at the Very Large Telescope, photos have been obtained of a low-mass companion very close to a star. This has allowed astronomers to measure directly the mass of a young, very low mass object for the first time - European Southern Observatory

Swift Mission Images The Birth Of A Black Hole
The NASA-led Swift mission has detected and imaged its first gamma-ray burst, likely the birth cry of a brand new black hole - NASA
New Computer Simulations Suggest Sedna Could Have Formed Where We Find It Today
Planetary scientists continue to debate what Sedna's presence says about the history of our solar system. Now, S. Alan Stern of the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado, says large bodies may have formed much farther out than previously thought — and Sedna may be only the first of many such objects found in the solar system's hinterlands - Astronomy
Sunspot Cluster Ejects Huge Radiation Storm
The Sun spewed forth a massive amount of radiation this week, causing brilliant auroras and a radio blackout - New Scientist
