NASA researchers have created a model that analyzes various weather conditions, including rainfall, to predict the formation and spread of fires.

Will We Know Life When We See It? NASA-led Group Takes Stock of the Science

In the last decade we have discovered thousands of planets outside our solar system and have learned that rocky, temperate worlds are numerous in our galaxy. The next step will involve asking even bigger questions. Could some of these planets host life? And if so, will we be able to recognize life elsewhere if we see it?
