Vital Signs

Analysis of data from NASA's Stardust, the Comet Sample Return Mission, has been reported. The amino acid glycine was detected. Carbon isotope analysis showed that the sample glycine had more carbon 13 than would be expected from a terrestrial sample of the molecule, making it highly improbable that the glycine originated from a terrestrial source.

In other news, I hope to be rather done with my hiatus from blogging.
