Scientists are then able to read the pressure close to the heart, from the aorta. Professor ... posted on Mar 17 2011, 3,510 reads

NASA's Kepler space telescope has uncovered six new planets huddled around a sunlike star--odd worlds that astronomers have dubbed mini-Neptunes.

"This is the most closely packed known planetary system," said study co-author... posted on Mar 09 2011, 3,051 reads
