Interesting.

Strange Bright Spots on Ceres Create Mini-Atmosphere on Dwarf Planet

The investigation into the dwarf planet Ceres' mysterious bright spots has taken an intriguing new twist.

The famous bright spots at the bottom of Ceres' Occator crater appear to be sublimating material into space, creating a localized atmosphere within the walls of the 57-mile-wide (92 kilometers) hole in the ground, new observations by NASA's Dawn spacecraft suggest.

Ebola: Not yet over

Ebola’s Not Done With West Africa

Officially, it’s called the Ebola Outbreak of 2014. But it’s 2015 now, and the disease is still infecting people. For the past two months, that rate was about 15 people a week. But in the past two weeks, the rate has doubled.

This is bad. Not last summer-bad—when weekly infection rates were in the hundreds—but bad enough that relief agencies have begun to worry about a resurgence. And even a trickle of infections is a wear on the aid workers, government authorities, and most of all, communities living in months of fear. “I was here in 2014. If you would have told me in 2014 I would see 30 cases of Ebola every week I would not have believed it,” says Marc Forget, Doctors Without Borders’ relief coordinator for Guinea.


This map, dated July 15, shows the number of days since active cases were discovered in the three countries where ebola is still a threat.

Vaccinating and registering the children born during Ebola
Sierra Leone conducts immunization and birth registration campaigns for children under five

In Sierra Leone, the Ebola outbreak has affected all aspects of health care. Exact numbers are yet to be confirmed but it is clear that many children have missed out on routine vaccination services and birth registration during the outbreak. To counter this, mass immunization campaigns are being held to enable children to ‘catch-up’. In June this year, an integrated measles and polio campaign was conducted reaching 97% of children under the age of 5.

'Earth 2.0' found in Nasa Kepler telescope haul

A haul of planets from Nasa's Kepler telescope includes a world sharing many characteristics with Earth.

Kepler-452b orbits at a very similar distance from its star, though its radius is 60% larger.

Nasa scientists said they believe it is the most Earth-like planet yet.

Such worlds are of interest to astronomers because they might be small and cool enough to host liquid water on their surface - and might therefore be hospitable to life.

Nasa's science chief John Grunsfeld called the new world the "closest so far" to Earth.

"It's a real privilege to deliver this news to you today," said John Jenkins, Kepler data analysis lead at Nasa's Ames Research Center in California.

"There's a new kid on the block that's just moved in next door."

Stay tuned.

'Another Earth?': NASA hints at planetary discovery

NASA is teasing space enthusiasts, hinting that it may have some big news to announce about other Earth-like planets in the Milky Way.

The space agency said it plans to share a new discovery from its Kepler Space Telescope at a news conference scheduled for 9 a.m. PDT on Thursday.

The Kepler mission, launched in 2009, is dedicated to finding Earth-like planets in what scientists call the "habitable zone," or the region near stars where orbiting planets might have the conditions to support the existence of liquid water.

Ebola: Not yet over

Liberia- Liberia is surrounded by three countries, two of which are fighting to get zero infection from the Ebola virus disease.

Guinea, Sierra Leone are said to be reporting cases on a daily basis while Liberia was declared free on May 9 of this year.

Whilst the Ebola outbreak continues in neighboring countries, there is a risk the disease could be imported into Liberia and re-start the outbreak. However, a large-scale outbreak is unlikely due to the current preparedness measures.

Liberia was one of the worst affected countries in the West African Ebola outbreak. Transmission declined in early 2015, and the response scaled back proportionally in some areas.

Armadillos blamed for rise in leprosy cases in Florida

Health officials in Florida are warning people to avoid contact with armadillos after a recent rise in leprosy cases linked to the armoured creatures.

Florida officials have reported nine cases of leprosy already this year - double the normal rate.

Armadillos are the only animal to carry leprosy, a bacterial disease that affects the skin and nerves.

The disease can be spread through saliva. The animals sometimes spit when cornered or caged.

Ebola threat not over yet, survivor Kent Brantly says

While the initial panic or hysteria may have dissipated, the threat of Ebola remains imminent, survivor and missionary Dr. Kent Brantly said Tuesday.

"The public is not always aware of what's happening in West Africa, but we're still seeing 20 to 30 new cases of the disease in Sierra Leone and Guinea every week," Brantly said in a CNBC "Squawk on the Street" interview.
