Not since NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft saw our home as a pale blue dot from beyond the orbit of Neptune has Earth been imaged in color from the outer solar system. Now, Cassini casts powerful eyes on our home planet, and captures Earth, a pale blue orb -- and a faint suggestion of our moon -- among the glories of the Saturn system.Earth is captured here in a natural color portrait made possible by the passing of Saturn directly in front of the sun from Cassini's point of view. At the distance of Saturn's orbit, Earth is too narrowly separated from the sun for the spacecraft to safely point its cameras and other instruments toward its birthplace without protection from the sun's glare.

NEW YORK — Scientists have discovered a remarkably complete skeleton of a 3-year-old female from the ape-man species represented by "Lucy."The discovery should fuel a contentious debate about whether this species, which walked upright, also climbed and moved through trees easily like an ape.The remains are 3.3 million years old, making them the oldest known skeleton of such a youthful human ancestor.
