Scientists found moving water on the Moon

The Moon apparently isn't nearly as dry as scientists once thought. That's the message from researchers using data from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter to detect water molecules and the behavior of the moisture over the course of a lunar day.Earth's Moon was once assumed to be a dry and dusty place, but over time that image has changed. Scientists discovered ice present near its poles, and more recently we've learned that liquid water does indeed exist within the lunar su...

White House budget proposal tightens the screws on science, from space to salmon

The White House’s $4.7 trillion spending plan for fiscal year 2020 aims to give a boost to the Space Force, but would dial down work on NASA’s Space Launch System, zero out the Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope, leave salmon in the lurch and slash science spending on other fronts. When it comes to outer space, the brightest spotlight falls on lunar exploration and space commercialization — which is in line with the priorities of the National Space Council, headed by Vice President Mike Pence....

Nvidia Won Over Mellanox; Now It Must Clear Chinese Regulators

Nvidia and Mellanox, which makes data-center interface technology, each get about a quarter of their sales in China, the biggest market for semiconductors. China’s desire to bolster domestic chip production may be influencing its regulatory processes, just as the U.S. uses its own as a tool to maintain its pre-eminence in the industry. Questions about Chinese regulatory approval played out in the market’s reaction to the deal.

Paleontologists found a new species of dinosaur, and it’s just a little fella

Finding the scant remains of dinosaurs that roamed the Earth tens of millions of years ago obviously isn't easy. Finding the remains of entirely new dinosaurs that nobody even knew existed? That's even harder still, but researchers in Victoria, Australia did just that, and the newly documented herbivore would probably have been pretty adorable to see in person.As detailed in a new report in the Journal of Paleontology, Galleonosaurus dorisae was a small plant eater that stomped around pr...

Lights go out on Venezuela's kidney patients

Alfredo Quintero's kidneys failed five years ago, so he needs dialysis three times a week just to stay alive. Luckily, though, Quintero managed to take advantage of a brief resumption of electricity in parts of Caracas on Sunday to get the desperately needed blood purification treatment. At least 15 people died between Saturday and Sunday due to a lack of dialysis treatment, the non-governmental organization Codevida told AFP.

Sleep is a brain-repair mechanism, new study proves

Scientists Lior Appelbaum and David Zada in Israel publish new proof that sleep serves to help our brains repair damage. Their study, published in the journal Nature, used genetically engineering transparent zebrafish with colorful chemical tags attached to chromosomes in their neurons, and found that chromosomes constantly change shape to repair DNA damage, but move twice as much during sleep as when awake. “I think this is one of the key reasons we need to sleep,” said Lior Appelbaum from B...

As China prevails, France's Macron shuffles his cards in Djibouti

Djibouti, strategically located at the southern entrance to the Red Sea on the route to the Suez Canal, hosts France's largest naval base on the continent and is home to some 1,400 personnel used to train African troops as well as to monitor the Horn of Africa and Yemen. "France considered Djibouti for too long to be a territory that was won," said a senior French diplomat based in the region. "But now the competition from China is fierce." Those comments echoed President Ismail Omar Guelleh'...

Desperate Venezuelans swarm sewage drains in search of water

Tejedor, 28, joined dozens of people who had flocked to the Guaire river, which snakes along the bottom of a sharp ravine alongside Caracas' main highway, to fill up a four-gallon (15 liter) plastic container. Unlike the fetid liquid flowing through the Guaire river, the water emerging from the pipe was at least clear. It's horrible, horrible," said Tejedor, preparing to carry the container on a small hand cart back to her home in the neighborhood of San Agustin.

Berners-Lee says World Wide Web, at 30, must emerge from 'adolescence'

Speaking to reporters at CERN, the physics research center outside Geneva where he invented the web, Berners-Lee said users of the web had found it "not so pretty" recently. "It seems we don't finish reeling from one privacy disaster before moving onto the next one," he added, citing concerns about whether social networks were supporting democracy. People who had grown up taking the internet's neutrality for granted now found that the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump had "rolled t...

New study shows eye scan can reveal changes associated with Alzheimer’s disease

Ophthalmologists at Duke University have found that a special type of eye scan can pick up changes indicative of Alzheimer’s disease. The eye scan is called optical coherence tomographic angiography, or OCTA for short. Within less than a minute, OCTA takes a non-invasive picture of the retina -- the nerve cells in the back of our eyes that convert light from the outside world into nerve signals that the brain interprets into images.
