Sediment studies in the Mediterranean reveal the existence of a green corridor in the Sahara desert that emerged at the exact time when our ancestors migrated from Africa about 2.1 million years ago
In the new study, evidence for additional sources of chemical energy, much stronger and more diverse than methane production, was discovered: a group of organic compounds was found that were oxidized, and this points to many chemical pathways for the existence of potential life in the subsurface ocean of Enceladus, because oxidation helps to release chemical energy.
As the day dawned last Friday, ISRO started trying to communicate with the lander. There has been no answer so far, and it is possible that the lander and the vehicle will be buried up to about 600 km from the south pole of the moon
The project is an important step towards proving the ability to grow plants on the moon in order to produce healthy food for astronauts who will land on it in the future. Finding new ways to maximize sustainable food production on Earth also keeps the research team busy.
The unmanned Chandrayaan 1 mission will launch in June, a delay of about three months. Separately, India will soon announce the exact flight dates of its first manned mission to the moon
