Double Whammy: Asteroids Delivered One-Two Punch - Space.com  A pair of 35-million-year-old craters on Earth thought to have been carved by comets now appears to be the result of a broken asteroid that generated a slowly delivered shower of debris over millions of years. One crater is in Chesapeake Bay off the Maryland coast. The other, called the Popigai crater, is in north-central Siberia. Estimates of their age suggest they were created a mere 10,000 years apart. 
Mars Echoes Of Earthtones - SpaceDaily  This banner image shows Mars at Gusev Crater in approximately true color, as if one were standing beneath the hills called Columbia. by Astrobiology Magazine The Spirit rover is at the base of the "West Spur" portion of the "Columbia Hills." To see Mars in its rusty, red tones with an almost olive colored sky gives a stark relief from the flat plains around the enormous crater. Scientists would like to understand better the past environment at Gusev Crater and have a strategy directed towards identifying what might have been once an ancient, dry lake bed.

Gemz Uses Solar Cell Nano Films To Power Laptops Under Indoor Lighting - SpaceDaily  Laptop and cellphone users everywhere need a cost-effective way to continually power or recharge their units without plugging them in. Previous products on the market use crystalline or polycrystalline silicon photovoltaic cells that just don't do the job, as they work only when they are recharged in direct sunlight. The INC products are believed to be the first to use PV Nanofilms, which combine thin photovoltaic films and nanotechnology so they can also work indoors in most lighting situations. "These two planned new products are the first of what we expect will be a family of consumer products."
