The sun has gone blank twice this month

From an article by Meteorologist Paul Dorian Vencore, Inc: "For the second time this month, the sun has gone completely blank. This is a more dangerous time for astronauts as the increase in potent cosmic rays can easily shatter a strand of human DNA. Also, during years of lower sunspot number, the sun’s extreme ultraviolet radiation [...]

Saving precious water with nanoscale ingenuity

From nanowerk.com: Managing scarce water resources is problematic for many Middle East countries, and forecasts predict a more straitened situation ahead. Desalination plants are one way to manage water shortages, as more than two-thirds of the world’s desalination capacity is in this region, but processing seawater has enormous energy and environmental costs. Other approaches need [...]

Diagnostic Device Keeps Astronauts Checked Up for Distant Space Trips

 In the future, NASA astronauts journeying into deep space may give themselves a health check-up with the aid of a small medical device developed by a team of scientists, including one from LLNL. "The point of developing tools like this one is for detecting disease from long-term exposure to microgravity and ionizing radiation," Coleman said, [...]
