NASA’s new space telescope to hunt for signs of alien life

NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope will search for signs of extraterrestrial life on Earth-sized planets of the recently discovered TRAPPIST planetary system, its designed to complement and extend the scientific capabilities of other missions such as the Hubble Telescope.

Worm regenerates into rare two-headed creature in space

An amputated worm regenerated into a double-head creature after spending five weeks aboard the International Space Station. Flatworms help researchers to study how absence of gravity can alter their anatomical, behavioural, and bacteriological structure.
