BBC News: Space rock contains organic molecular feast
Scientists say that a meteorite that crashed into Earth 40 years ago contains millions of different carbon-containing, or organic, molecules.
BBC News: Martian methane mystery deepens
Dr Lefevre says the chemistry of the Martian atmosphere is still a mystery. The dynamics and chemistry in the model does not match the measurements, we cannot reproduce the uneven distribution they see from Earth.
BBC News: Space rock yields carbon bounty
An analysis showed four times more formic acid in the fragments than has been recorded on previous meteorites. The researchers told a meeting of the American Geophysical Union that the formic acid was extraterrestrial.
BBC News: Complex molecules seen in space
Astronomers have detected two of the most complex carbon-rich molecules ever found in interstellar space.
Archaea in Space
Studies of archaea enzymes conducted on the Space Shuttle could help explain how these organisms survive at extreme temperatures and pressures and could have far-ranging implications for everything from exobiology to biotechnology.
Assessing Extraterrestrial Biomass
While the basic geological conditions on Mars could provide the minimal requirements for life to exist, new geochemical models suggest the biological potential of the red planet may be minimal. Chances of life on the Jovian moon Europa are even slimmer.
Cosmic Ancestry
This site examines the possibility of life on earth arising from life in space. Articles include bacteria on earth originating from space, how does life evolve, testing for cosmic ancestry.
