Scientists are trying to make the International Space Station’s bathroom a little less gross

The International Space Station is like no other place on Earth, and not just because it's not actually on Earth at all. The orbiting laboratory is inhabited by crews of scientists that live there for months before being changed out for fresh faces, and this poses a huge challenge when it comes to cleanliness.It's not that astronauts are any messier than the rest of us, but they're definitely still human, and being human means carrying a whole host of microorganisms with you on a dai...

A jury has found one of the world’s most widely-used weed killers to have been a “substantial factor” in causing a man’s cancer. The unanimous decision, made after five days of deliberations in San Francisco’s federal court, found that Roundup, Bayer AG’s weed killer, was responsible for California resident Edwin Hardeman’s non-Hodgkin lymphoma. It instead allows the trial to proceed to a second phase, which will determine the company’s potential liability and damages.
