APRIL 27, 2017 —In the early hours of Thursday morning, NASA's Cassini space probe re-established contact with Earth after a risky dive between Saturn and its rings and began to transmit data collected during the maneuver back to the space agency. The probe's communication dish had been purposely directed to orient itself away from Earth to act as a protective shield against any particulates the probe might have encountered during the dive, which could have damaged the spacecraft prematurely.

APRIL 24, 2017 —Antarctica is the most inhospitable place on Earth. Since the early 20th century, however, seasonal melting has produced temporary rivers and lakes, breaking up the monotonous line of ice.

And these bodies of water may not be as rare as scientists once thought. In a first-of-its-kind survey released Thursday, researchers were able to document meltwater drainage's unexpectedly large network of rivers, lakes, and ponds at the fringes of the Antarctic continent.

Just in time for Earth Day, hundreds of South Jersey elementary students got the chance to learn a little bit more about prehistoric Earth, as they climbed deep into a Mantua Township quarry to hunt for fossils.
Student activists on Rowan's campus pushed for a food pantry to help those dealing with food insecurity.
Chris Smith’s route to becoming a doctor was unusual: beer delivery driver, line cook, press room helper, data analyst, Ikea worker, and office administrator. He collected unemployment for a while. Now, the 36-year-old father of two is about to graduate from Cooper Medical School of Rowan University. He hopes to “match” on Friday with a hospital residency in emergency medicine.
