Washington [US], October 1 (ANI): The path that ExoMars 2022 will follow to reach the Red Planet is set. The trajectory that will take the spacecraft from Earth to Mars in 264 days foresees a touchdown on the Martian surface on 10 June 2023, at around 17:30 CEST (15:30 UTC).
California [US], October 1 (ANI): In a new study, researchers reveal how subanesthetic ketamine, which is used for pain management and as an antidepressant in humans, is effective in treating adult amblyopia, a brain disorder commonly known as "lazy eye."
California [US], September 30 (ANI): A team of researchers found that the drug tofacitinib, also called Xeljanz and approved by the FDA to treat rheumatoid arthritis and ulcerative colitis, can repair permeability defects in the intestine.
Washington [US], September 30 (ANI): The European Space Agency (ESA) has released its first Solar Orbiter data to the scientific community and the wider public.

Washington [US], September 29 (ANI): Satellite imagery has revealed that two of the fastest-changing glaciers in Antarctica are fracturing and weakening faster than ever - the first step towards the glaciers disintegrating and causing sea levels to rise dramatically.
Washington [US], September 29 (ANI): A study of comet motions indicates that the solar system has a second alignment plane. Analytical investigation of the orbits of long-period comets shows that the aphelia of the comets, the point where they are farthest from the Sun, tend to fall close to either the well-known ecliptic plane where the planets reside or a newly discovered 'empty ecliptic.'
Pamplona [Spain], September 29 (ANI): Researchers have led an international study identifying the cardiac cells responsible for repairing the damage to the heart after infarction. These "restorative" cells are a subpopulation of cardiac fibroblasts that play a fundamental role in the creation of the collagen scar needed to avoid the rupture of the ventricular wall.
