Mysteries of space dust revealed
(DOE/Argonne National Laboratory) The first analysis of space dust collected by a special collector onboard NASA's Stardust mission and sent back to Earth for study in 2006 suggests the tiny specks open a door to studying the origins of the solar system and possibly the origin of life itself.

NASA sees Hurricane Cristobal racing through North Atlantic
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Satellite imagery shows Hurricane Cristobal racing through the North Atlantic on Friday, August 29 while losing its tropical characteristics.

NASA animation shows Hurricane Marie winding down
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NOAA's GOES-West satellite keeps a continuous eye on the Eastern Pacific and has been covering Hurricane Marie since birth. NASA's GOES Project uses NOAA data and creates animations and did so to show the end of Hurricane Marie.

Astrophysicists report radioactive cobalt in supernova explosion
(Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology) A group of Russian astrophysicists, including researchers from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, have detected the formation of radioactive cobalt during a supernova explosion, lending credence to a corresponding theory of supernova explosions.

On the search for 'new physics'
(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) The participants will be focusing on subjects such as the physics of the Higgs particle, the search for 'new physics,' and the corresponding unifying theory that will greatly expand our understanding of elementary particles and fundamental forces.

Researchers use NASA and other data to look into the heart of a solar storm
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Scientists found that the CME contained a rare piece of dense solar filament material. This filament coupled with an unusually fast speed led to the large amount of solar material observed.

NASA sees a weaker Tropical Storm Marie
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) When NOAA's GOES-West satellite captured an image of what is now Tropical Storm Marie, weakened from hurricane status on Aug. 28, the strongest thunderstorms were located in the southern quadrant of the storm.

Informing NASA's Asteroid Initiative: A citizen forum
(Arizona State University) An innovative project between NASA (the US government's space agency) and a group led by Arizona State University called ECAST -- Expert and Citizen Assessment of Science and Technology -- is planning to hold citizen forums to engage ordinary citizens in active dialogue about NASA's Asteroid Initiative.

NASA's TRMM analyzes Hurricane Cristobal
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission or TRMM Satellite provided a look under the hood of Hurricane Cristobal as it continues moving north and paralleling the US East Coast. NASA's HS3 hurricane mission also investigated the storm. Cristobal is now close enough to the coast to trigger high surf advisories.

NASA's TRMM satellite adds up Cristobal's heavy rainfall in the Caribbean
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The Caribbean Islands of Turks and Caicos were drenched from Tropical Storm Cristobal before the storm moved north and intensified into a hurricane. NASA's TRMM satellite added up the rainfall and revealed the soaking those islands received.
