 *   Astronaut, cosmonaut chosen for 1-year stay on ISS in 2015<http://r.smartbrief.com/resp/eatZCjsBbdCffUasCidndgCicNbwoI?format=standard>
Astronaut Capt. Scott Kelly and Roscosmos cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko were chosen for a yearlong mission aboard the International Space Station in 2015. It would be the longest space mission ever for an American. The mission will focus on collecting data related to crew and health performance that could help scientists identify risk-reduction measures when living in space. "The one-year increment will expand the bounds of how we live and work in space," said William Gerstenmaier, NASA's associate administrator for human exploration and operations at its Washington, D.C., headquarters. Kelly's twin brother is Mark Kelly, a former space shuttle commander.

Space Exploration Technologies CEO Elon Musk says a self-sustaining colony on Mars is possible, as he envisions up to 80,000 colonists living and growing food under transparent domes on the planet's surface. "At Mars, you can start a self-sustaining civilization and grow it into something really big," said Musk, who spoke this month at the Royal Aeronautical Society in London.

 *   Scientists discover ancient microbes living in Antarctica<http://r.smartbrief.com/resp/eatZCjsBbdCffUauCidndgCicNuXIs?format=standard>
Scientists found a diverse community of ancient bacteria beneath the Antarctica's Lake Vida, which sits under at least 60 feet of ice. The bacteria, which have survived for thousands of years, were discovered as researchers analyzed the composition of the lake's brine that has been set apart from the surface for at least 2,800 years. The findings bring to light the extreme boundaries at which creatures possibly can live anywhere, not just on Earth, scientists said.

 *   Researchers find fossilized hangingfly<http://r.smartbrief.com/resp/eatZCjsBbdCffUavCidndgCicNGPUV?format=standard>
Researchers found a fossilized hangingfly that imitated the appearance of a now extinct ginkgo-like tree leaf in the Inner Mongolia region of China. They believe that the creature may have evolved the mimicking behavior to attack prey and hide from predators. "The mere occurrence of this type of mimicry approximately 40 million years before the appearance of flowering plants is the most important implication [of the discovery]," said Conrad Labandeira, a curator paleoentomology at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History.

 *   Scientists start untangling genome architecture<http://r.smartbrief.com/resp/eatZCjsBbdCffUayCidndgCicNEwCj?format=standard>
Now that scientists have sequenced the human genome, some are looking at how its structure affects health and disease. Chromosomes replicate, divide and change shape in three dimensions, says molecular geneticist Job Dekker, who pioneered the chromosome conformation capture technique that lets researchers study the arrangement of chromosomes in the nucleus. Dekker is looking into how genome folding domains are formed and what determines how the elements are arranged, which might help predict cancer.
