Don't panic: Students have until Dec. 7 to enter UH Mars rover celebration
In the 1938 radio broadcast of "War of the Worlds," listeners went into panic at the prospect of Martians invading Earth. It's hoped that cooler heads prevail when Houston-area grade schoolers descend upon the University of Houston for the Jan. 27, 2007, Mars Rover Celebration. Open to the public, the event's goal is for students to create operational vehicles for Mars exploration on a $25 budget. The deadline for entries is Thursday, Dec. 7.

Cosmic rays go along for the Milky Way ride
Cosmic rays zoom through our galaxy near the speed of light. These streams of high energy particles may be accelerated in shock waves such as supernova blast waves, but theirs paths are scrambled by interstellar magnetic fields, making it difficult to determine where they came from.

If asteroids got dizzy
Then near-Earth asteroid 1999 KW4 would be about to lose its lunch right now. Scientists have discovered that the main piece of this asteroid, whose name is "Alpha," is spinning so fast that it would break apart if it went any faster. Alpha also has a little buddy named "Beta." Beta is revolving around its own axis, but it also circles around Alpha. That's a lot of spinning!

Respect: Young researcher rejuvenates old lab equipment
Dr. Luis Cisneros remembers a lesson instilled by his grandfather, Pedro Cisneros in Peru: Respect your elders. "He was someone who taught me how to respect senior people and value their wisdom," Cisneros said. "And I believe that when you put things on display, and you show people to value these things, you will have more respect for the profession." With that, Luis started a gallery.
