HIDDEN OCEANS ON EUROPA COULD STILL SUPPORT LIFE
------------------------------------------------
Could life thrive where the Sun never shines? The answer to this
unorthodox question bears directly on the tantalizing possibility
that life exists in the hidden, perpetually dark oceans that are
thought to shroud some of Jupiter's moons, most prominently Europa.

PROBE TO TAKE 'FINGERPRINT' OF COMET NUCLEUS
--------------------------------------------
Instruments aboard a spacecraft that will be launched next year to
explore two, and perhaps three or more, comets in the solar system
will for the first time provide a "fingerprint" of the surface of
cometary nuclei, giving the first firm evidence of the composition of
the icy, rocky objects.
