The thrust of the problem
(University of California - Riverside) For decades, scientists have debated the structure of the Main Himalayan Thrust -- the fault responsible for a 2015 earthquake that killed nearly 9,000 people, injured 22,000, and destroyed 600,000 homes in Gorkha, Nepal.

These Researchers Are Using AI Drones to More Safely Track Wildlife
In the late ’90s, wildlife conservationists Zoe Jewell and Sky Alibhai were grappling with a troubling realization.

But after years of work, the researchers realized there was a major problem: Their technique, commonly used by all manner of wildlife scientists, seemed to be causing female rhinos to have fewer offspring. The researchers published their findings in 2001, igniting a controversy in the conservation world. The ...
