It is a matter of investment from the UK government that we are not able to answer your questions at the moment – and that’s a scandal frankly”
Dr. Jakob van Zyl from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab is part of explorations that ‘knows no boundaries and are truly out of this world’.

Novel dating techniques used by the Canadian and UK team suggest the fluid is at least 1.5 billion years old.

Pacific Bluefin tuna caught off the coast of California have been found to have radioactive contamination from last year’s Fukushima nuclear accident. The fish would have picked up the pollution while swimming in Japanese waters, before then moving to the far side of the ocean.
Scientists stress that the fish are still perfectly safe to eat.
Fukushima pollution is potentially a very useful tool to trace the origin and timing of animal movements.
