Rogue Weedkiller Vapors Are Threatening Soybean Science

Dicamba drift is threatening soybean science

Something strange is happening to Pengyin Chen's soybean experiments at the University of Missouri's Fisher Delta Research Center in Portageville, Mo.

"You see how small they are?" says Chen, gesturing at a field filled with thousands of small plots of soybeans.

The leaves ought to be wide and flat; instead, they're curled into cups. Instead of growing straight up, the plants are putting out fragile little side branches. Chen pulls a plant out of the soil to show me. "This plant is not supposed to have a branch there," he says, pointing.

Apollo 11 Aimed for the Moon While the World Watched

Apollo 11 aimed for the mooon

“APOLLO 11. APOLLO 11. Good morning from the Black team.”

It was six a.m. Michael Collins, loosely belted and floating over the left seat with his headset on, took a while to wake up. “Good morning, Houston… you guys wake up early.”

“It looks like you guys were really sawing them away,” said CapCom Ron Evans.

A few minutes later, the spacecraft disappeared around the moon’s left side for the ninth time. None of them had slept long—six hours at most. Buzz Aldrin had had a fitful night, but the other two had slept soundly. All three ate breakfast. In Mission Control, when Evans saw their craft reappear around the right edge of the moon, he read them the day’s headlines.

Partial lunar eclipse will be visible on 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 launch

Apollo 11 launch: 50th Anniversary

Skywatchers in much of the world can witness a partial lunar eclipse on Tuesday or early Wednesday, depending on where you are. The eclipse coincides with the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 launch which first landed astronauts on the moon.

The celestial event will be visible for much of the globe, but not in the U.S. The eclipse will be visible across Africa, much of Asia, the eastern part of South America and western Australia. It will miss North America except for the most eastern and southern parts of the continent. The last total lunar eclipse happened in January and the next partial lunar eclipse won't happen until November 2021.

New Horizons has a successful flyby of the Kuiper Belt’s bowling pin

New Horizons has a successful flyby

While people around the world were celebrating the arrival of 2019, people at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory in Maryland were hard at work. Billions of miles away, the New Horizons probe was flying past Ultima Thule, a small object in the Kuiper Belt. By Tuesday morning, the hardware had sent back a status report that indicated the flyby went as planned, and New Horizons now has lots of data from Ultima Thule that it will slowly send back to Earth over the coming months.

While we don't yet have any of the data that will tell us details about this relic of the Solar System's formation, images taken during the approach solved one of the mysteries that had arisen as New Horizons closed in. But one of the key questions—is Ultima Thule one object or two?—remains unanswered.

Astronaut, cosmonaut safely return after ejecting from failed space launch

NASA: ISS crew ejects from failed launchAn American astronaut and Russian cosmonaut were forced to eject from an aborted launch to the International Space Station early Thursday and make an emergency landing.

NASA astronaut Nick Hague and Roscosmos cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin were aboard the spacecraft when it launched at 4:40 a.m. EDT on a mission to the station. The duo blasted off from Kazakhstan's Baikonur Cosmodrome aboard the Russian Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft.

Moments after launch, the two were forced to eject from the spacecraft after they encountered trouble with a booster on the rocket.

Mummified Ice Age wolf pup, caribou still covered with fur found by gold miners

Wolf cub, caribou from Ice Age found

A mummified wolf pup and caribou believed to have walked Earth over 50,000 years ago were discovered with tissue and fur intact — a remarkable find, Canadian authorities say.

The caribou was found at the site of a 80,000-year-old volcanic ash bed and officials believe it's among the oldest mummified mammal tissue in the world, according to a release.

The head, two front limbs and torso of the caribou were intact. The wolf pup was found with a complete body.

Scientists discover atoms inside the orbiting electrons of a 'giant atom'

Scientists discover atoms inside electrons of giant atom Scientists have discovered an atom filled with atoms. The atom's electrons orbit at such a great distance that there's room for other atoms.

The atoms within the "giant atom" form weak bonds, produ cing a new exotic state of matter -- what scientists have dubbed "Rydberg polarons."

The discovery combines a pair of atomic phenomenon, both of which can only be studied under extremely cold conditions: Bose-Einstein condensates and Rydberg atoms.
