AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) Lavelle Scottie had 18 points, Sid Tomes and Trevor Lyons added 14 each, and Air Force beat Utah State 75-65 on Saturday.
New research in to how Earth's atmosphere evolved over time could hold the key to detecting life on exoplanets, according to scientists from the University of St Andrews and Cornell University.
The new study, published in The Astrophysical Journal, details how Earth's atmosphere evolved over time and how this corresponds to the appearance of different forms of life.
Founded in 1919, the International Astronomical Union is the body charged with officially naming the objects in our universe and "safeguarding the science of astronomy." Here's what they have to say about the names of celestial objects.
Some of the most arresting evidence of prehistoric life is enshrined in museums: fossils, hoisted onto pedestals, interpreted with placards, illuminated by spotlights. But fossils can be anywhereyou likely pass some every day.
It was only meant to last about three months, but NASA's Opportunity Mars rover has officially clocked up 5,000 Martian days exploring the Red Planet. That's a little over 5,151 Earth days in which the robotic geologist has traversed a record 28 mi (45 km) across the surface of Mars to unlock the secrets of the planet's history and geology - and it's not done yet.
I've had an interest for a while in ridiculously old science fiction, such as Margaret Cavendish's 1666 novel The Blazing World, as well as science fiction written by prominent scientists, such as Simon Newcomb's His Wisdom the Defender (1900), Robert Williams Wood's The Man Who Rocked the Earth (1915), and Fred Hoyle's The Black Cloud (1957). But if I want to combine ridiculously old and prominent scientist, there's no book that can beat Somnium, written by Johannes Kepler in 1608!
Often billed as the earliest science fiction novel, Somnium provides probably the earliest descriptions of a journey to the Moon and the beings that live there.
One of the most interesting things to come out of Microsoft's (MSFT) transformation under CEO Satya Nadella is its investment in quantum computing.
Wednesday I had a chance to catch up on those developments with two executives, Todd Holmdahl, the VP running the team, Microsoft Quantum, and Dr.

In preparing last week's Friday fold, I did some browsing around in Google Earth in northwestern Namibia, at the intersection between the Kaoko and Damara deformational belts. Man, it's incredible there.

Putting humans and consciousness aside, at the level of quantum particles, Wheeler's delayed-choice experiments show that actions in the present can influence the past, says physicist Marcelo Gleiser.
Scientists put a lot of effort into uncovering the history of these tiny bits of matter, in the hopes that it will tell us something about the universe, says astrophysicist Marcelo Gleiser.
