NASA’s Earth science funding is also broadly supported.
Scientists beamed particles from a satellite to two locations on Earth 750 miles apart — and the particles were still mysteriously connected.
When it became known that the earth was only one of a family of planets circling the sun, the question arose: was there life on other planets? Many later speculated about this.

New research by Simon Fraser University professor Karen Kohfeld and University of Tasmania professor Zanna Chase, published in the journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters, examines how the ocean pulled carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and into the deep sea during the last ice age 125,000 to 18,000 years ago.
When you think of the perks of becoming an astronaut, there's plenty to list: you get to see the Earth from a perspective that only few have shared, you're privy to new science discoveries before the public hears about them, and you get to be one of the few people who grew up to become something they wanted to be as a kid.
