Mars vs. Europa: Are we looking in the wrong place for alien life? A British astrobiology conference has revived a years-old debate over the best place to look for life elsewhere in the solar system: Mars, or the moons of Jupiter and Saturn? "For reasons I don't really understand, the wider solar system and the potential for life there has not been high priority," The Telegraph quoted Robert Pappalardo, a senior research scientist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, as saying on BBC Radio 4.

The reviled king suffered nearly a dozen injuries on the battlefield, but the fatal blows were probably only sustained after he had to abandon his horse, according to a new paper.
Since the skeleton of the 15th-century king was discovered under a parking lot in central England in 2012, scientists have done numerous studies, including an examination of his twisted spine that led Shakespeare to label him a hunchback.
In the latest research, published Wednesday in the journal Lancet, scientists used computer scans and other methods to analyze the king's skeletal wounds.
Richard's skeleton showed evidence of 11 injuries from weapons including daggers, swords and a long metal pole with an axe and hook that was used to pull knights off their horses.
The Kansas Supreme Court is considering whether the state's chief elections officer must fulfill a request from Democrats' nominee for the U. S. Senate to remove his name from the Nov. 4 election ballot.
Some Democrats nudged party nominee Chad Taylor out of the race with three-term Republican Sen. Pat Roberts, expecting it to help independent candidate Greg Orman defeat Roberts in the Nov.
The United Nations has brokered an agreement to enable the reconstruction of the Gaza Strip, giving a lead role to the Palestinian Authority while involving the private sector, the U. N.'s top Mideast envoy said Tuesday.
The deputy Palestinian prime minister, Mohammed Mustafa, said last week that international donors are hesitant to fund Gaza's reconstruction so long as Hamas remains in control there and the specter of future wars looms.
Mustafa, a top official in the West Bank Palestinian Authority, said international bodies are eager for President Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah forces to take on a leading role in Gaza.
Serry said reconstruction must take place alongside fresh efforts to promote a two-state solution and end Israel's occupation.
A man pleaded guilty Tuesday to the 1974 slaying of a teenage girl at a rural Iowa farmhouse, ending a 40-year effort to hold her killer responsible.
Robert "Gene" Pilcher, who was long a suspect in the slaying of 17-year-old Mary Jayne Jones but had maintained his innocence, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder during his second trial in the case in Ottumwa.
Under a plea deal, prosecutors dropped a first-degree murder charge, which carries a sentence of life in prison.
Hours later, her naked, bruised and bloody body was discovered on a bed in a farmhouse 7 miles away.
Pilcher was charged with sodomy and perjury in that case, but investigators could not find evidence linking him to Jones' death.
Nearly everything else she owned was consumed by a fast-moving wildfire that destroyed her house, along with 100 other structures in the small Northern California timber town of Weed.
In my head, I still see my couch and the living room floor.
On Tuesday, she walked through the devastation alone, taking pictures with her pink smartphone of the high school baseball field and other landmarks.
At her house, all that remained of three motorcycles, a piano and a chain saw were pieces of charred metal in the remnants of the garage.
Stonecypher was afraid to look in the blackened fridge, which had been filled with meat from a trip to the grocery store.
Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton posted online side-by-side graphic photos of his face, showing healing in the five days since he was struck by a pitch.
The first shot was taken shortly after he was hit Thursday by an 88 mph pitch from Milwaukee's Mike Fiers, and it shows him with two black eyes, swelling, several cuts and stitches in his lip.
The second photo shows some swelling on the left side, two black eyes and the stitches.
