g Abodes - New research indicates that Earth's moon could be younger than previously thought. See article.
g Life - NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope has spotted graphene in space. If confirmed, it would be the first-ever cosmic detection of the unique, chicken-wire-like material. Graphene is composed of carbon and has many industrial applications on Earth. Studying carbon in space may also hold clues about how life on Earth developed. See article.
