Physicists Offer New Approach To Studying Antimatter - SpaceDaily  Left: Allen Mills, leader of the research project on the collision of positronium atoms, is a professor of physics at UCR.  What happens when two atoms, each made up of an electron and its antimatter counterpart, called the positron, collide with each other? UC Riverside physicists are able to see for the first time in the laboratory that these atoms, which are called positronium atoms and are unstable by nature, become even more unstable after the collision. "Our research also gives the first hint of the presence of double positronium molecules, each of which is made up of two electrons and two positrons," said Allen Mills, professor of physics and leader of the research project. "This kind of matter-antimatter pairing has never been formed or studied in the laboratory until now, and paves the way for a new field of study on its properties."  
New Book Expands Biological Classifications To Account For 'Alien' Life - SpaceDaily  What would you call an alien if you encountered it on the street tomorrow? What if that alien didn't come from another world but rather was created in a laboratory right here on Earth and functioned differently from other Earth life? Either way, Peter Ward has the beginnings of an answer. In a new book, the University of Washington paleontologist puts forth an expanded "tree of life," or biological classification system, to account for a variety of life forms that would not fit in the current system. The revamped classification system would include life based on RNA instead of DNA   

Russia, China Propose Joint Missions To Moon and Mars - SpaceDaily  Russia and China are considering jointly creating spacecraft to explore Mars and the Moon, a senior official of the Russian Federal Space Agency Roscosmos said Monday, reports RIA Novosti. Roscosmos deputy head Yury Nosenko said Russia proposed that both countries develop a small satellite to orbit Mars and that the 2008-2009 Mars exploration program proposed launching one or two light satellites into Mars' orbit to transmit data to earth. The Roscosmos official also said Russia could offer China its help to explore the Moon within the Chinese space program. "We will participate in exploring the Moon within the Chinese space program.
