Roadkill Counter Is An App For That Splat

(MCT) — The dirty business of counting doe DOAs has gone high-tech, courtesy of a Utah State University team that developed a smartphone application to chart collisions between motor vehicles and animals. The system could help reduce collisions that cause an estimated 200 human deaths and $8.4 billion in property damage annually nationwide, not to […]

Mars Or Bust, Says New Report On NASA Human Space Exploration

(MCT) — If NASA is to make great strides in its human spaceflight program, it needs to go big or go home — and get to the Martian surface, says a new Congressionally mandated report. But the 285-page report from the National Research Council goes on to say the agency won’t succeed unless it does […]

Carbon Emissions Rule Relies On A Broad View Of ‘System’

WASHINGTON (MCT) — The coming legal battle over President Barack Obama’s far-reaching climate-change rules will probably turn on the meaning of one word in the Clean Air Act of 1970: “system.” Under the landmark anti-pollution law, the Environmental Protection Agency is empowered to require States to apply “the best system of emission reduction” to existing […]

People Less Prepared For Hurricanes With Feminine Names, Study Shows

(MCT) — Bertha, Dolly, Fay and Hanna could be on the way now that the Atlantic hurricane season started Sunday.

Brain’s Limits Lead To Unconscious Choices In What We See And Remember

(MCT) — The human brain is a marvel of power and flexibility, and a pair of new studies demonstrates that when it runs up against the limits of its capacity to take in and store information, the brain often relies on its agility to fill the gap. In the process, however, information can be lost. […]

Giant Volcano With Glacier On Mars May Have Been A Nice Place For Life

(MCT) — If life existed on Mars in the recent past, the best spot for it could have been on a giant volcano once encrusted with a glacier, according to a team of Brown University scientists using data from NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. Microbial life could potentially have thrived for a time at the foot […]

Space Group Suggests Firing Missiles At Mars To Find Alien Life

BEVERLY, Mass. (UPI) — Scientists have long hypothesized that evidence of life could be hiding deep below Mars’ subsurface ice. But digging for such evidence is not currently in the cards for NASA and its Mars rover, as Curiosity’s drill only extends an inch or so. That’s why Massachusetts-based nonprofit group Explore Mars is urging […]

Is Too Much Science Bad?

WASHINGTON, May 7 (UPI) — Does the phrase “too much of a good thing” apply to science? There’s no obvious answer, but when it comes to scientific output — research, papers, studies, surveys, etc. — some scientists have suggested the answer is “yes.” So much output at such a high pace, some have argued, means […]

New Dino Species ‘Pinocchio Rex’ Discovered By Scientists

EDINBURGH, Scotland (UPI) — Paleontologists have confirmed the discovery of a new species: a Tyrannosaur with a long, pointy snout. Naturally, scientists dubbed the new dino “Pinocchio rex.” Officially named Qianzhousaurus sinensis, the newfound predator was — like his cousin T. rex — a ferocious carnivore. Pinocchio rex and T. rex lived side by side […]
