No longer lost in translation: Biochemists watch gene expression in real time
Biochemists have made a live-cell movie of RNA translation, the fundamental cellular process by which a ribosome decodes a protein. Sixty years after Francis Crick first described it, these scientists have illuminated, in a single living cell, this final step of gene expression. Their tools: some clever protein engineering, and a custom-built microscope that can show single-RNA translation with nanoscale precision.

From whales to silver foxes to refugees: EMILY robot is a lifesaver
(Office of Naval Research) She's tough -- capable of punching through 30-foot waves and riptides or smashing into rocks and reefs. But she's also tender, providing hope to those in peril.Meet EMILY the robotic lifeguard -- officially known as the Emergency Integrated Lifesaving Lanyard -- a remote-controlled buoy that recently was used to rescue nearly 300 Syrian migrants from drowning in the waters off the Greek island of Lesbos.

MIT scientists compile list of potential gases to guide search for life on exoplanets
(Mary Ann Liebert, Inc./Genetic Engineering News) A new approach intended to maximize the chances of identifying planets orbiting nearby stars that support life focuses on creating a comprehensive list of the molecules that might be present in the atmospheres of these exoplanets. Biosignature gases emitted by exoplanetary life forms could be detected remotely by space telescopes, but these gases might have quite different compositions from those in Earth's atmosphere, according to an article in Astrobiology.

Two NASA sounding-rocket missions to explore coronal nanoflares and escaping atoms
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Two new sounding-rocket missions funded by NASA's Heliophysics Technology and Instrument Development for Science, or H-TIDeS, program, scientists at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, plan to learn more about two little-understood processes.
