	 NASA seeks lunar surface concept proposals

The U.S. space agency said it's seeking ideas for its lunar 
surface systems concept to help it develop plans for a return 
to the moon by 2020. The National Aeronautics and Space 
Administration said it will hold a June 6 discussion at the 
U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington and is inviting 
interested institutions, industry and academia to attend and 
submit proposals. NASA said it is soliciting concept studies 
in several topic areas, with the duration of the studies being 
six months or less. Proposals are due July 7. NASA said a total 
of $2 million is available in study contracts to be awarded by 
mid-August, with a maximum individual award amount of $250,000.
The space agency's Constellation Program is developing a new 
space transportation system that is designed to travel beyond 
low Earth orbit. The Constellation fleet includes the Orion 
crew exploration vehicle, the Ares I and Ares V launch vehicles 
and Altair human lunar lander. Registration information is 
available until 5 p.m. EDT on June 4 at

	 Demand for biofuels boosting food prices

The United Nations said food prices are being pushed higher by 
weather-related crop shortages and high demand for biofuels.
A report by the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization, 
released ahead of the upcoming conference on World Food Security 
in Rome, said urgent measures are needed to boost agricultural 
production and protect the poor from being hurt by high food 
prices."The current dramatic world food situation reminds us of 
the fragility of the balance between global food supplies and 
the needs of the world's inhabitants, and of the fact that 
earlier commitments to accelerate progress towards the 
eradication of hunger have not been met," FAO Director-General 
Jacques Diouf said in a statement." The report said production 
and trade policies on biofuels need to be re-examined in light 
of their possible effects on international food markets.
"The emerging biofuels market is a new and significant source 
of demand for some agricultural commodities such as sugar, 
maize, cassava, oilseeds and palm oil," the report said.

	   U.S. losing stature as science leader

u.S. scientists say the United States is losing stature in 
the international scientific community because of anti-science 
policies. A panel of scientists and audience members at the 
World Science Festival in New York said questions about the 
science of evolution and evidence of climate change, along 
with a reluctance to fund stem cell research, has resulted in 
a loss of scientific power and prestige, The New York Times 
reported Thursday.  Nobel laureate David Baltimore, board 
chairman of the American Association for the Advancement of 
Science, said raising questions about the science of evolution 
"leads to a certain disdain for American intelligence." Nina 
Fedoroff, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's top science 
adviser, said science in the United States "has really kind 
of died over a quarter of a century." Fedoroff said China is 
educating 10 times as many students as the United States. 
"The next generation of scientists in other countries might 
not speak English," she said.
