Liquid crystals like those found in LCD screens may have helped spark life on Earth. A new study found that short RNA molecules can form liquid crystals, which are structured like solids, yet flow like liquids. These crystals then help RNA grow into the longer chains required for life.

The rovers currently exploring asteroid Ryugu can't just wheel over the asteroid's rough, low-gravity surface like they can on Mars. Instead, each bot autonomously "hops" up to 50 ft (15 m) off the ground to avoid obstacles, which can keep it afloat for nearly 15 minutes each jump.
