The early hints were spotted in data on cosmic ray observations undertaken by the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer on the International Space Station. If confirmed the antimatter helium could point to islands of antimatter spread across the universe. *New details on how the late heavy bombardment changed the solar system forever A new study of ancient Martian impact craters has provided strong evidence that the late heavy bombardment occurred between 4.1 and 3.8 billion years ago. The findings show a 400 million year lull in asteroid impacts striking the surface of the red planet. *A jet stream discovered in Earth’s core. Scientists have discovered a jet stream churning deep in Earth’s molten outer core. Unlike the more conventional atmospheric jet streams associated with weather pattern generated high altitude winds – this newly discovered jet stream is located some three thousand kilometres below the Earth’s surface. *China launches its heaviest ever payload into space China has launched its heaviest ever payload into orbit. The new Long March 7 heavy lift rocket blasted off from the Wenchang spaceport on Hainan Island in the South China Sea, carrying the 13 tonne Tianzhou -1 resupply mission to Beijing’s Tiangong-2 orbiting science module.
