*Lunar water more common than thought
There could be a lot more water on the Moon than previously thought. New Satellite readings indicate that numerous volcanic deposits spread across the lunar surface contain unusually high amounts of water compared with surrounding terrains. The findings mean there could be as much water in the lunar mantle was what there is in mantle basalts on Earth.
*Dark Matter more likely to be cold rather than fuzzy
Scientists trying understand dark matter now believe it’s far more likely to be big and cold rather than light and fuzzy. The new findings are based on a study of the intergalactic medium – the stuff that fills the vast, largely empty space between galaxies.

*Jupiter Great Red Spot in infrared
As scientists continue to examine data from the recent Juno spacecraft flyby over Jupiter’s iconic Great Red Spot, astronomers have used the infrared imager on the Gemini North Telescope in Hawaii to study the solar system’s largest planet in a new light-- revealing particles over a range of different altitudes. The observations show the Great Red Spot is one of the highest-altitude features in Jupiter's atmosphere.
