Stargazing Through the Ages: The Telescope Turns 400, by Marshall Perrin (4/13/09)
Column.
Some four hundred years ago, the news spread through Europe like wildfire: a strange device had been invented which made distant objects appear miraculously close. Sailors, scholars, soldiers and noblemen all eagerly sought out this high-tech wonder. The gossip reached a middle-aged math professor at the University of Padua, who immediately began trying to reverse-engineer the gadget.

Xenobiology At the Extremes: And You Think Your Neighbors Are Weird?, by Marshall Perrin (8/25/08)
Column.
Over the past decade or so, spurred in part by the biological revolution and in part by our increasing confidence that earth-mass planets are potentially common, astrobiology has started to come of age.
Believing in the Unbelievable: A brief history of black holes, by Marshall Perrin (6/23/08)
Column.
Black holes are the Tyrannosaurus Rex of astronomy: mysterious and dangerous, the end result of millions of years of evolution, perfect predators which hold our fascinated attention all out of proportion to their actual rarity.
The Cyborgs Are Coming!, by Marshall Perrin (3/31/08)
Column.
OK, I'll admit that cyborgs are perhaps not exactly traditional harbingers of spring, but for that matter, when was the last time you saw an actual rabbit delivering eggs?
Still Seeking Signals: SETI Today, by Marshall Perrin (2/18/08)
Column.
So how about finding some new civilizations? Are there any out there? Have our decades of listening made any progress - or are we perhaps truly alone after all?
Lucy in the Sky With Nanodiamonds, by Marshall Perrin (1/7/08)
Column.
Tiny nanodiamonds inside meteorites appear to be true "star bits," born in the edges of dying stars long, long before our solar system ever formed.

Oh boy, I thought to myself, a Roswell true believer. Here we go again.
Settings for Space Opera, Part III: Strange Neighbors, by Marshall Perrin (9/3/07)

Every neighborhood has a few oddballs, right?
Settings for Space Opera, Part II: A Perplexing Plethora of Planets, by Marshall Perrin (7/30/07)

The discovery of planets around other stars is now a routine occurrence.
Settings for Space Opera, Part I: Welcome to the Neighborhood, by Marshall Perrin (4/2/07)
Column.
Whether you're looking to start an interstellar colony, found a galactic empire, or merely find a great location for your next tale of adventure in outer space, it pays to know what the neighborhood is like.
Cloudy With a Chance of Star Formation, by Marshall Perrin (2/19/07)
Column.
The densest parts of the interstellar medium remain far emptier than the best vacuums yet created in Earthly laboratories, and the gigantic scales over which the interstellar medium extends boggle the mind.
Lurking in the Dark, by Marshall Perrin (1/8/07)
Column.
If we must anthropomorphize our neighborhood icy bodies (and I'm not recommending that we do), far better to celebrate lucky Pluto, a family man (with three bouncing baby moons, two newly discovered in the last year), and a home in a very popular part of town.
Building a Better Beanstalk, by Marshall Perrin (11/13/06)
Column.
Imagine being able to fly a hundred times more space missions for the same budget we have today, or being able to easily build orbiting structures that dwarf the International Space Station.
The Crimson Desert, by Marshall Perrin (10/2/06)
Column.
The first footprints on Mars will come no earlier than 2025, or more likely 2035. By that time, though, will there be many Martian mysteries left?
