Today's earth & space headlines from the sources selected by our team:

'Map Of Life' predicts ET. (So where is he?)

Working out in artificial gravity
Engineers have built a compact human centrifuge with an exercise component: a cycle ergometer that a person can pedal as the centrifuge spins. The centrifuge was sized to just fit inside a module of the ISS. After testing the setup on healthy participants, the team found the combination of exercise and artificial gravity could significantly lessen the effects of extended weightlessness in space -- more so than exercise alone.

NASA's reliance on outsourcing launches causes a dilemma for the space agency
The spectacular failure of the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket last week underscores a growing problem for NASA: its reliance on private companies and Russia in order to launch many of its crucial missions. Astronomy & Space News, Fri, 03 Jul 2015 17:15:59 GMT

Advances in robots needed to explore icy moons
In December 2013, researchers using the Hubble Space Telescope announced they had found evidence of a water plume emanating from Europa's surface. Astronomy & Space News, Fri, 03 Jul 2015 17:15:59 GMT

Hubble view: Wolf-Rayet stars, intense and short-lived
This NASA/European Space Agency (ESA) Hubble Space Telescope picture shows a galaxy named SBS 1415+437 (also called SDSS CGB 12067.1), located about 45 million light-years from Earth. SBS 1415+437 is a Wolf-Rayet galaxy, a type of star-bursting galaxy with an unusually high number of extremely hot and massive stars known as Wolf-Rayet stars.
