NASA rockets to be launched as early as today (Jan. 26) from Alaska will allow researchers from the University of Colorado to capture ultraviolet images of the Whirlpool Galaxy -- 31 million light years from Earth. And researchers from Virginia Tech will use rocket-mounted instruments to measure nitric oxide, a molecule that destroys ozone, from about 30 to 100 miles above the ground.

Orangutan DNA More Diverse than Human's, Remarkably Stable Through the Ages

An international team of scientists, led by Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, has decoded the DNA of a Sumatran and Bornean orangutans. The research, published in Nature, reveals intriguing clues about the evolution of great apes, including humans, and provides opportunities to aid conservation efforts in the wild, where the orangutans are endangered.
