.news-article__hero--featured .parallax__element{ object-position: 20% 25%; -o-object-position: 20% 25%; } NASA’s Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite mission was brutish and short. It began on 9 October 2009, when the hull of a spent Centaur rocket stage smashed into Cabeus crater, near the south pole of the Moon, with the force of about 2 tons of TNT. And it ended minutes later, when a trailing spacecraft flew through and analyzed the lofted plume of debris before it, too, crashed. About 6% of the plume was water, presumably from ice trapped in the shadowed depths of the crater, where the temperature neve...

54gene ’ s CEO Abasi Ene-Obong Wants to Fix the Racial Imbalance in Health Data
Born and raised in the Nigerian port city of Calabar, Abasi Ene-Obong remembers the exact moment that changed his life’s direction.

Ene-Obong ditched his plan to become a doctor, and instead left for London, and later Los Angeles, to study genetics, finally earning a Master’s degree in business focusing...

Flammable invasive grasses are increasing risk of devastating wildfires
.news-article__hero--featured .parallax__element{ object-position: 25% 70%; -o-object-position: 25% 70%; } For decades, eastern Oregon’s scablands—rocky patches of open terrain—were a refuge for people fighting wildfires in the surrounding forests. The thin soil and sparse vegetation offered little fuel for the flames, creating an oasis from which firefighters could operate and a barrier that could help halt a fire’s spread. That all changed in 2015. After lightning sparked a fire near a steep-walled canyon, the blaze unexpectedly raced across scablands so quickly that firefighters struggled to catch up. ...

Can Ignorance Be Bliss?
Back in the 1980s, when Studio 54 was in its heyday, I taught high school science in New York City for a few years. Having graduated from a large public high school myself in a suburb of Cleveland, living in Manhattan in the early ’80s was a culture shock for me: exhilarating and wild but also a little scary. I was amazed at how many people were crowded into the city. The sidewalks were filled with drug users, sex workers, and mentally ill indviduals — many of whom seemed very angry and sometimes threw projectiles at othe rs for no apparent reason.
