CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- Space shuttle Discovery's launch to the International Space Station now is targeted for no earlier than March 15. NASA managers postponed Wednesday's planned liftoff due to a leak associated with the gaseous hydrogen venting system outside the external fuel tank. The system is used to carry excess hydrogen safely away from the launch pad. Liftoff on March 15 would be at 7:43 p.m. EDT. The exact launch date is dependent on ... [full story]

Salmonella bacteria research from two recent NASA space missions discovered key elements of the bacteria's disease-causing potential that hold promise for improving ways to fight food-borne infections on Earth. Salmonella is a leading cause of food poisoning and related illnesses. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 40,000 cases of Salmonella infections are reported in the United States each year. "This research opens up new areas for investigations that may improve food ... [full story]

  Increased ocean acidity seems to affect clownfish behavior. In more acidic water, some odors didn't drive away the clownfish larvae.    Locusts tend to form swarms once the neurotransmitter serotonin is released. While in the swarm, individual locusts change from a green color to black and yellow.    Located between Argentina and Chile, Monte Fitz Roy peak is named after Robert FitzRoy, the captain of the HMS Beagle.  Rising ocean acidity — sometimes dubbed the evil twin of global warming ...

Pasadena, Calif. - A NASA spacecraft in orbit around Mars has taken the first ever image of active avalanches near the Red Planet's north pole. The image shows tan clouds billowing away from the foot of a towering slope, where ice and dust have just cascaded down. The High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter took the photograph Feb. 19. It is one of approximately 2,400 HiRISE images being released today. ...

A popular, an­ciently rooted idea about clin­i­cal de­pres­sion—that it re­sults from a chem­i­cal im­bal­ance—still finds its way in­to many news re­ports, a study has found.There’s just one prob­lem: the claim has lit­tle or no ba­sis, the stu­dy’s au­thors say. In fact, the main­stream sci­en­tif­ic view is that de­pres­sion’s causes are simply un­known. Absinthe Drinker by Pablo Picasso (1901).

Nothing like a bird chirp­ing in the morn­ing to re­mind you of nature’s glory, right?Not quite. A rather creepy new re­search find­ing sug­gests some bird songs are a bit un­natur­al—in­flu­enced by pol­lut­ants, which cause at least one species of birds to change their songs.

CORVALLIS, Ore. – A sophisticated new climate model simulation of long-term global warming suggests that even if greenhouse gas emissions are reduced, the planet will continue to get warmer for 100 to 200 years. The delay would be caused by a warming of the world’s oceans, which would increase biological productivity as well as limit the oceans’ ability to absorb atmospheric heat and carbon dioxide, according to Andreas Schmittner, an oceanographer at Oregon State University ...
