After more than 50 years of quiet, the moon is about to become a destination for space travelers again. NASA and Axiom Space unveiled the new spacesuit that will be worn by the first woman and the first person of color to walk on the moon. The Artemis III crew will aim to land at the unexplored lunar south pole, home to frigid, permanently shadowed regions where ice has remained frozen for billions of years. The reimagined suit allows for more range of motion and includes extra-insulated boots and other innovations. The prototype of the new design Axiom Space revealed appears black, blue and orange, but the actual suits will be the traditional white from the Apollo days to protect the astronauts from wild temperature swings.
Dinosaurs were some of the largest creatures to roam Earth, and a dino called Mamenchisaurus sinocanadorum once enjoyed munching on the leafy greens of trees. Its 49.5-foot-long (15.1-meter-long) neck allowed it to stand in place and chow down for hours. A stunning species of orchid has been newly discovered blooming in rural gardens and suburban balcony planters in Japan. Scientists were able to tell this orchid apart from others in its family because the flowers bloomed earlier and the plant has smooth, rather than hairy, stems. NASA mission scientist recently revisited images of Venus from 1991 captured by the Magellan spacecraft and found that a vent on one of the planet's largest volcanoes had nearly doubled in size and was filled with a lava lake.

Meanwhile, the search for water on Mars has turned up signs of a recent glacier that existed near the red planet's warm equator. The glacier is no longer present, but researchers spotted a crusty layer of salt that preserved surprising details of the ice chunk.
