Mars To Earth: Sample Mission A Must - Space.com   A robotic mission to haul samples back from Mars to Earth should be on NASA’s "most wanted" list, but a risk adverse space agency has left the project in limbo. Bringing back the goods from Mars by robotic means—designated as MSR—is still downstream in NASA thinking, Hinners said. While a high science priority for almost three decades, the U.S. has yet to commit to MSR, he said, with the project always a decade or more away in plans and "safely down far enough."     
health (stock image) Drug 'blocks Alzheimer's course'  - BBC  A drug that appears to block the progression of Alzheimer's disease has been identified by scientists. In tests on mice, the drug, AF267B, reversed the symptoms of memory loss and problems with learning associated with Alzheimer's. Further analysis showed it also reduced levels of protein clumps and tangles often found in Alzheimer's patients. The study, by the University of California, Irvine, is published in the journal Neuron. The drug also cut levels of both protein plaques - found outside brain cells - and tangles - found inside the cells - in the cortex and hippocampus.

Volcano is on the rise at Yellowstone park - MSNBC  Left:  Steam rises from Steamboat Geyser at Yellowstone National Park during an eruption on May 2, 2000. Activity at Steamboat, the world's largest geyser, is seen as a manifestation of the Yellowstone caldera's changing geology.   Forces brewing deep beneath Yellowstone National Park could be making one of the largest volcanoes on Earth even bigger, a new study reveals. In the past decade, part of the volcano has risen nearly 5 inches (12 centimeters), most likely due to a backup of flowing molten rock miles below the planet's crust. The activity may have cracked the crust in the park's famous Norris Geyser Basin.
