Distant planet's interior chemistry may differ from our own
As astronomers continue finding new rocky planets around distant stars, high-pressure physicists are considering what the interiors of those planets might be like and how their chemistry could differ from that found on Earth. New work demonstrates that different magnesium compounds could be abundant inside other planets as compared to Earth.

Tiny drops of 'perfect' fluid existed in the early universe
Surprisingly, smaller particles colliding with large nuclei appear to produce tiny droplets of quark-gluon plasma. Recent results show that the tiny droplets behave like a liquid not the expected gas. The results support the case that these small particles produce tiny drops of the primordial soup.

Up and down quarks favored over strange ones
A suppression of strange quark production relative to up and down quark production had previously been noted; for the first time, the result has been verified when a single pair is produced.

The feasibility of deflecting asteroids
It's the ultimate science fiction: The immense power of the sun is harnessed and converted into a massive phased array of laser beams that have the potential to intercept and deflect asteroids before they smash into Earth.

How to get rid of a satellite after its retirement
Researchers at University of La Rioja (Spain) have developed a new method to eliminate artificial satellites in highly elliptical orbits when they finish their missions. The methodology, which reduces both cost and risk, has been tested with the European Space Agency INTEGRAL mission, which will re-enter the Earth's atmosphere and disintegrate in 2029.

Report endorses advanced cosmic microwave background research at South Pole
A next-generation cosmic microwave background (CMB) program should be a top priority for large-scale science efforts at the South Pole, according to a report published this month by the National Academies, and produced by the Polar Research Board in their Division on Earth and Life Studies. The report, requested by the National Science Foundation (NSF), identified several crucial areas of research for the next decade of the U.S. Antarctic Program (USAP), which is managed by the NSF's Division of Polar Programs.

Image: LISA Pathfinder launch sequence
Scheduled for launch in late 2015, ESA's LISA Pathfinder will test key technologies for space-based observation of gravitational waves – ripples in the fabric of spacetime that are predicted by Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity. Produced by massive accelerating bodies, these perturbations are expected to be abundant across the Universe, but they are yet to be detected directly.
