Japan lands bouncing robots on asteroid Ryugu




Japan has scored a space race double first by becoming the first nation to land not one, but two rovers on an asteroid. The Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) has confirmed that both of the robotic MIcro Nano Experimental Robot Vehicle for Asteroid, second generation (MINERVA-II1) spacecraft, designated Rover-1 and Rover-1, successfully deployed from the unmanned Haybusa2 probe on September 21 at 1:06 pm JST (04:06 GMT), touched down on the asteroid Ryugu, and are sending back images.

Candy-pink lagoon raises hopes for life on Mars




Algae found in a candy-pink Spanish lagoon is giving scientists hope that life could or may once have existed on Mars. Called Dunaliella salina EP-1, the organism gives the Laguna de Pea Hueca at Lake Tirez in La Mancha its distinctive color, and it lives in high salt and sulfur concentrations similar to those found at the buried lake at the Martian ice caps or the global ocean under the ice crust of Jupiter's moon Europa.

Glavan walls off the VW T6 to create a cozy adventure camper van for two




After looking over dozens of Volkswagen Transporter camper vans, they can start to appear a dime a dozen. A kitchen against the side of the van, a rear bench that folds into a bed, a pop-up roof - it's been done over and over. At this year's Dsseldorf Caravan Salon, Slovenia's Glavan showed a Transporter camper van laid out a little differently. The company's two-person "Free" adventure van pulls the kitchen out of the van and puts a wall between the cabin and lift-gate, creating a warmer interior that feels more like an actual bedroom and not so much just a van shell with bed.

Gallery: Impressively packaged mini-camper vans that live surprisingly large




You don't need to spend six or seven figures to enjoy a comfy motorhome meticulously furnished for quick or extended road trips. This year's Dsseldorf Caravan Salon revealed that, with a little strategy and technique, even the smallest vans can serve as comfortable, well-equipped motorhomes. You won't find stretched, tower-roofed Ducatos or Sprinters here these compact to downright tiny camper vans stretch no more than 5.3 m (17.4 ft) long, with many are under 5 m (16 ft). Despite the limited dimensions, each one is able to live much larger than its small footprint might suggest.
