    The ice-encrusted oceans of some of the moons orbiting and are leading candidates in the search for .

    A new lab-based study shows that individual ice grains ejected from these planetary bodies may contain enough material for instruments headed there in the fall to detect signs of life, if such life exists.

    Even a tiny fraction of cellular material could be identified by a mass spectrometer onboard a spacecraft.

    NASA Unveils Design for Message Heading to Jupiter’s Moon Europa

    The moon shows strong evidence of an ocean under its icy crust, with more than twice the amount of water of all of Earth’s oceans combined. A triangular metal plate on the spacecraft will honor that connection to Earth in several ways.

    I turn philosophical in my latest column.

    The starlight you see at night is many years old. And for each one of us, there's a bright star whose light is the same age that you are!

    When you find your corresponding star, it can trigger a profound perspective shift & sense of connection. Read the column here:

    Understanding Living Systems by Raymond Noble & Denis Noble

    Life is definitively purposive and creative. Organisms use genes in controlling their destiny. This book presents a paradigm shift in understanding living systems. The genome is not a code, blueprint or set of instructions. It is a tool orchestrated by the system. This book shows that gene-centrism misrepresents what genes are and how they are used by living systems.
