Water on Mars but not a drop to drink
The surface of Mars is now as dry as a desert, but new results from ESA's Mars Express confirm that water has played an important role in the planet's history. The spacecraft's sensitive instruments confirm that the arid Red Planet was once much wetter, and that water ice is probably widespread beneath the surface.

Earliest bird had dino-like feet
A new fossil discovery shows that the earliest birds had feet similar to those of theropod dinosaurs (the group of two-legged, meat-eating dinosaurs that includes T. rex). The new specimen provides important details about the feet and skull of these birds and strengthens the argument -- which many but not all scientists agree on -- that modern birds arose from theropod dinosaurs.

New 'time machine' from ice
Thanks to air bubbles trapped in a long cylinder of ice from a glacier in Antarctica, scientists have jumped an extra 210,000 years back in time. This scientific "time machine" now tells us how much carbon dioxide and methane was in the air as far back as 650,000 years ago.

What do butterfly wings and TV screens have in common?
Many of the gadgets we use every day work by controlling the movement of light waves. CD and DVD players use lasers to read information off disks, allowing us to listen to music or watch movies. Optical fibers carry information signals long distances, in the form of light, allowing telephones and other devices to "talk" to each other.

First Galileo satellites named
In the years to come, no fewer than 30 European navigation satellites will be launched into orbit around the Earth. One landmark of this ambitious project passed on 9 November, when the first pair of test satellites were named GIOVE (Galileo In-Orbit Validation Element).

Europe's first farmers
People migrating from the Middle East brought farming techniques to present-day Germany and other parts of central Europe about 7,500 years ago. For years, scientists have been arguing over whether people with European ancestors are closely related to these first farmers. Some scientists say yes. Others say no and argue instead that people with European roots are closely related to the humans who lived in Europe long before the first farmers showed up.

Words versus sentences
It's pretty easy to tell the difference between a word and a sentence. But how your brain works when it reads a word versus how it works when it reads a sentence is still a mystery.

Trees protected villages from tsunami waves
In India, trees growing along the coastline helped to protect villages from the "walls of water" or tsunami waves that were triggered by a powerful earthquake that struck beneath the Indian Ocean on 26 December 2004, scientists have discovered.
