For the first time, scientists have directly detected a crucial amino acid and a rich selection of organic molecules in the dusty atmosphere of a comet, further bolstering the hypothesis that these icy objects delivered some of life's ingredients to Earth.
The amino acid glycine, along with some of its precursor organic molecules and the essential element phosphorus, were spotted in the cloud of gas and dust surrounding Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko by the Rosetta spacecraft, which has been orbiting the comet since 2014. While glycine had previously been extracted from cometary dust samples that were brought to Earth by NASA's Stardust mission, this is the first time that the compound has been detected in space, naturally vaporized.

This physical, tabletop version of Pong looks sort of like an air hockey table but the paddles and ball are actually connected to mechanical arms, which are connected to a computer.
Just like the video game, tabletop Pong allows you play against a computer AI opponent or against a friend. And it glows in the dark.
Now we just need a tabletop version of Tetris. Get to work, Internet.
Last time Elon Musk's SpaceX rocket stuck its ocean landing, he released a jaw-dropping video. This time, Musk has outdone himself. The latest onboard view from the Falcon 9 booster will zip you from space to the ocean landing and blow your mind.
The brief video speeds up the rocket's trip and ends with its graceful landing on a drone ship in Cape Canaveral, Florida, following the launch of the SpaceX Thaicom 8 communications satellite headed for orbit.
In addition to showing up on YouTube, the video has also been shared by Musk on social media, with s Read more...
Protesters and supporters clashed at an anti-Donald Trump rally Friday in San Diego, where protesters burned a "Make America Great Again" hat and at least three people were arrested, police said.
While the GOP frontrunner addressed supporters inside the San Diego Convention Center, about 1,000 people gathered outside with Mexican flags, signs and Trump piñatas. In addition to burning one of Trump's trademark "Make America Great Again" caps, protesters also decapitated a Trump piñata, carried "F*** Trump" signs and chanted "F*** Donald Trump!"
If Nissan's GT-R is Godzilla, the 600-horsepower GT-R NISMO is Mechagodzilla.
On Friday morning, Nissan unveiled the 2017 GT-R NISMO, the most extreme version of the "new" GT-R that debuted at the New York Auto Show in April.
For those of you who don't know, NISMO is Nissan's performance arm. When it turns its engineering wizardry to the all-wheel drive tour de force, it creates the most GT-R that the GT-R can GT-R. Essentially, it's the automotive equivalent of the Xzibit meme.
By that, I mean if the standard GT-R is considered harsh and uncomfortable, the harder, faster and stiffer GT-R NISMO is more so. That said, Nissan claims that this refreshed GT-R NISMO is more comfortable and civilized than the last one. Let's hope. Read more...
