NASA Phoenix Mission Scientists to Discuss Martian Studies
Briefing participants will discuss the latest progress by NASA's Phoenix Mars Lander in exploring a site in the Martian arctic.
Following its May 25 landing, Phoenix has been studying whether Mars'
environment ever has been favorable for microbial life.
The briefing participants are:
– Michael Meyer, chief scientist, Mars Exploration Program, NASA Headquarters,Washington
– Peter Smith, Phoenix principal investigator, University of Arizona, Tucson
– Victoria Hipkin, mission scientist for Phoenix Meteorological Station, Canadian Space Agency, Saint-Hubert, Quebec
– Mark Lemmon, lead scientist for Phoenix Surface Stereo Imager, Texas A&M University, College Station
News media may participate by telephone during the question and answer portion of the briefing. Reporters should call NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory media office at 818-354-5011 before the briefing for instructions and the dial-in number.

Hyperbolic metamaterials exhibit 2T physics
3D nonlinear ferro-fluid-based hyperbolic metamaterials may contribute to ultra-fast all-optical hyper-computing. Metamaterials–nanoengineered structures designed for precise control and manipulation of electromagnetic waves–have enabled such innovations as invisibility cloaks and super-resolution…
40% of O’ahu, Hawai’i beaches could be lost by mid-century
The reactive and piecemeal approach historically used to manage beaches in Hawai’i has failed to protect them. If policies are not changed, as much as 40% of all beaches on…
Thin and ultra-fast photodetector sees the full spectrum
Researchers have developed the world’s first photodetector that can see all shades of light, in a prototype device that radically shrinks one of the most fundamental elements of modern technology….
