Another 'super-Earth', has been found.


Newly discovered 'super-Earth' may be the 'most exciting exoplanet'



(CNN)Over the last year, researchers have found nearby exoplanets that could potentially support life, like Proxima b and the seven TRAPPIST-1 planets. Now, a "super-Earth" has been found 39 light-years away, according to new research in the journal Nature.

Initial radar motion studies of 2014 JO25, from Arecibo Observatory, seem to show a binary object, with two distinct oval, flattish lobes, which spin around a common center. Also, they now believe the overall length of this object may be double the previously given size, so about 1.3 to 2.8 kilometers. Below is a link to an article with further information, and a 'movie' showing the object as it rotates.

Thanks for all the updates, Michael. :-)

Rare but deadly mouse-borne virus increases in the spring


As the weather warms and people turn to spring cleaning and outdoor activities such as camping and hiking, they need to beware of a rare but deadly virus that is spread through mouse droppings and kills up to 40 percent of people who become infected, public health officials said.

The severe respiratory illness is known as hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, or HPS. In the United States, most of these cases are spread by deer mice, which live in woodland areas and deserts and are found throughout North America. People get the disease by breathing in hantavirus when dust from dried rodent urine, saliva and droppings is stirred up in the air, which can happen in houses, garages and cabins, especially while cleaning. People can also get it by touching mouse urine, droppings or nesting materials that contain the virus, and then touching their eyes, nose, or mouth.

(CNN)GlaxoSmithKline is recalling more than 590,000 albuterol inhalers. Three lots of Ventolin HFA 200D inhalers have been voluntarily recalled due to a potential issues with the delivery system, a spokesman for the British pharmaceutical company said.
The affected lot numbers are 6ZP0003, 6ZP9944 and 6ZP9848. The devices have been recalled from hospitals, pharmacies, retailers and wholesalers in the United States.


Thanks Lynn I checked my inhalers ,whew !! there all good it's also lucky I don't have to use Ventolin and we have a generic version witch I currently have as well as Ventolin and it works just as well as Ventolin and 2 bucks less in cost


Your welcome Darth. Happy you don't use Ventolin. I do and checked mine. They were OK.

http://www.wired.co.uk/article/dark-matter-bridge

A dark matter 'bridge' holding galaxies together has been captured for the first time

Researchers at the University of Waterloo used a technique known as weak gravitational lensing to create a composite image of the bridge. Gravitational lensing is an effect that causes the images of distant galaxies to warp slightly under the influence of an unseen mass, such as a planet, a black hole, or in this case, dark matter.



They found the damn stuff.

NASA Missions Provide New Insights into 'Ocean Worlds' in Our Solar System


Two veteran NASA missions are providing new details about icy, ocean-bearing moons of Jupiter and Saturn, further heightening the scientific interest of these and other "ocean worlds" in our solar system and beyond. The findings are presented in papers published Thursday by researchers with NASA’s Cassini mission to Saturn and Hubble Space Telescope.

In the papers, Cassini scientists announce that a form of chemical energy that life can feed on appears to exist on Saturn's moon Enceladus, and Hubble researchers report additional evidence of plumes erupting from Jupiter's moon Europa.

Prospects for life look good on ocean worlds. Only probes can get there for now.

Ocean Worlds

Water in the Solar System and Beyond

The story of oceans is the story of life. Oceans define our home planet, covering the majority of Earth’s surface and driving the water cycle that dominates our land and atmosphere. But more profound still, the story of our oceans envelops our home in a far larger context that reaches deep into the universe and places us in a rich family of ocean worlds that span our solar system and beyond.

Nasa announces one of Saturn's moons could support alien life in our solar system


Molecular hydrogen, as found on Enceladus, is one of the essential parts of life on Earth

There might be alien life in our own solar system, Nasa has announced.

All of the necessary things to support life have been found on one of the moons that orbits Saturn.

Enceladus has chemicals that when found on Earth tend to indicate life, suggesting that there might be living things under its icy shell.

Scientists have long thought of Enceladus as one of the prime candidates for life within our solar system, in large part because of its subsurface ocean that covers its entire body. But the new research gives the best look yet at that moon, showing that it has a chemical energy source capable of supporting life.

Washington (CNN)The US military has dropped an enormous bomb in Afghanistan, according to four US military officials with direct knowledge of the mission.
A GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb, nicknamed MOAB, was dropped at 7 p.m. local time Thursday, the sources said.
The MOAB is also known as the "mother of all bombs." A MOAB is a 21,600-pound, GPS-guided munition that is America's most powerful non-nuclear bomb.
