Canada experiencing warming at twice global level: report

Canada is experiencing warming at twice the rate of the rest of the world, with the effects most pronounced in the country's north, according to a new government report cited by local media Monday. Average temperatures have risen by 1.7 degrees Celsius (3.1 degrees Fahrenheit) since 1948, or about double the global average of 0.8 degrees Celsius, and "will warm further in the future, driven by human influence," according to a report by Environment and Climate Change Canada, which will be made p...

Liquid crystal technology could prevent idiots from distracting pilots with laser pointers

On the long list of things you should never, ever do, shining a laser pointer at an airplane is definitely very close to the top. They might seem harmless when you're using a laser pointer to play with your cat, but the bright beams the tiny tools produce can be detrimental to a pilot's orientation, and even cause vision damage when they strike a cockpit.Literally thousands of reports of laser pointer "attacks" on planes are reported by pilots every year, and the idiots that do this kind...

This massive antenna is going to help NASA learn a lot about Europa

NASA has spent decades studying many of the planets in our solar system up close. Probes like Juno and Cassini have taught us a lot about the conditions of the planets they are sent to, but oftentimes the moons orbiting these planets are just as interesting as the planets themselves. Europa, one of Jupiter's moons, is of particular interest to astronomers, and NASA is going to send a new spacecraft to check it out.The mission, called Europa Clipper, will see a spacecraft sent to Europa and r...

Fossils tell story of day meteor struck Earth

The impact of the Chicxulub asteroid 66 million years ago left a massive crater and triggered the mass extinction of land and sea creatures. DePalma has been digging for the past seven years at a site in North Dakota that he and other scientists believe provides a unique fossilized record of what happened on that day. "You almost never get this opportunity at fine tuning the timing of any event in geologic history," DePalma said in an interview with AFP.

Blood test could detect nine in 10 cases of endometriosis, saving women a long and painful battle

Scientists have developed a blood test that can detect up to 90 per cent of cases of endometriosis. The painful condition, suffered by around 1.5 million women in the UK, is difficult to diagnose, with the average sufferer waiting more than seven years before it is identified. Often, patients need to go undergo keyhole surgery to identify tissues around the ovaries and fallopian tubes in order to diagnose the condition. The new test looks for tiny DNA fragments in the blood, providing a diagnosi...
