Flying past the geysers of Enceladus, Cassini orbiter previously recorded just a small amount of organic matter. However, this time were discovered some large molecules with a mass of 200 units. This indicates complex chemical processes that occur in the ocean under the ice of Enceladus.
This discovery indicates the possible presence in the ocean of Enceladus the simplest forms of life, such as microbes.
NASA Dawn mission recently revealed that the white spots on the Ceres are not an ice, these are usual alkaline compound, sodium carbonate. This was clarified when Dawn descended into the orbit of about 22 miles above the Ceres, so he got the opportunity to take HD photos of the surface.
In addition to sodium carbonate, complex organic substances were also found on the surface of this dwarf planet.
These recently digitised conversations were published on the Internet Archive. This project includes also the most of audios from the Apollo 1, Apollo 13 and Gemini 8.
KIC 8462852 is an F-type star with an unusual light oscillations discovered by the Planet Hunters project. This is the only known star with small, frequent, non-periodic dips in brightness.
These observations could not be explained by intrinsic variability of the star itself, they point to many objects of small mass that orbiting the star. One of possible explanations is that these objects could be parts of a megastructure made by an extraterrestrial civilization. However, this also can be explained by the planetary or comet debris around the star.
More than 8400 photos, from missions Apollo 7 up to Apollo 17 were uploaded to the Project Apollo Archive in the Flickr. This is all of images made by astronauts during they missions, including bad shots, and all of images are raw. Images were scanned in 1800 dpi.
