New Zealand opens first 'kiwi hospital' for injured birds
Neither human-induced climate change nor the El Nino weather phenomenon were determining factors in the devastating forest fires that killed more than 130 people in Chile this month, according to the results of an international study revealed Thursday.
'Zombie' blazes and drought: Canada headed for another brutal fire season
New Zealand on Friday opened its first hospital exclusively treating kiwi birds, and vets have already nursed the first patient back to health—a chick nicknamed "Splash" that tumbled into a swimming pool.
America returns spaceship to the Moon, a private sector first
Beneath the ground in Western Canada, dozens of so-called "zombie fires" that started last year are still burning.
The Sky This Week from February 23 to March 1: Catch a chilly Full Snow Moon
For the first time since the Apollo era, an American spaceship has landed on the Moon: an uncrewed commercial robot, funded by NASA to pave the way for US astronauts to return to Earth's cosmic neighbor later this decade.

Mass shooting lockdown drills help schoolchildren feel safer, US study suggests
Friday, February 23A Full Moon rises opposite the setting Sun this evening, riding into the sky beneath the body of Leo the Lion. Luna sits within 3° of the lion’s bright heart, Regulus, a 1st-magnitude star that lies close to the ecliptic plane that the Moon and planets follow through our sky. In fact, theContinue reading "The Sky This Week from February 23 to March 1: Catch a chilly Full Snow...
‘Very rare’ clay figurine of Mercury discovered at Roman site in Kent
Lockdown drills, practiced to help prepare children for shooting incidents at school, make those who have been exposed to violence feel safer, a new study of thousands of students in the US indicates.
Fossil reveals 240 million year-old 'dragon'
Previously unknown settlement in Small Hythe was once an important infrastructure linkA “very rare” clay figurine of the god Mercury, one of fewer than 10 ever found in Britain, has been discovered at a previously unknown Roman settlement that once sat next to a busy port – but is now 10 miles from the sea.The site of the settlement, in the modern hamlet of Small Hythe (or Smallhythe), near...
A Private Lander Made a Historic Touchdown on the Moon, But Sent a Weak Signal
A remarkably complete fossil of a bizarre Triassic reptile in unprecedented detail has been found.
US returns to lunar surface for first time in over 50 years: ‘Welcome to the moon’
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — A private lander touched down on the moon Thursday but managed just a weak signal back, as flight controllers scrambled to gain better contact with the first U.S. spacecraft to reach the lunar surface in more than 50 years.
Despite the spotty communication, Intuitive Machines, the company that built and managed...
American company makes historic Moon landing
Intuitive Machines’ spacecraft Odysseus lands after a 73-minute descent, touching down near moon’s south poleThe United States has returned to the lunar surface for the first time in more than 50 years after a privately-built spacecraft named Odysseus capped a nail-biting 73-minute descent from orbit with a touchdown near the moon’s south pole.But amid celebrations of what Nasa hailed “a...
Intuitive Machines completes the first ever lunar touchdown by a privately built spacecraft.

Odysseus moon landing live updates: first US lunar attempt in 52 years
Black carbon sensor could fill massive monitoring gaps
Carrying Nasa instruments, Intuitive Machines Odysseus lander aims to be the first US landing on the moon for over 50 yearsThe uncrewed Nova-C lander built by Intuitive Machines launched on 15 February. Its scheduled touchdown near the moon’s south pole would be the first lunar landing of a US spacecraft since Nasa’s final Apollo mission in December 1972, and the first by a non-government...
Agricultural economists offer food for thought to improve baby formula supply
Black carbon is the most dangerous air pollutant you've never heard of. Its two main sources, diesel exhaust and wood smoke from wildfires and household heating, produce ultrafine air particles that are up to 25 times more of a health hazard per unit compared to other types of particulate matter.
Study finds guided parent-child discussions are effective at addressing subtle racism
The 2022 baby formula crisis highlighted the precarious balance between regulation, competition and safety, according to a recent study published last month.
CRISPR/Cas9-mediated targeted mutagenesis of inulin biosynthesis in rubber dandelion
Experts have long pointed out the need for white parents to have conversations that directly address racism with their children to reduce racial bias. But many parents fail to have these crucial discussions.
Tailoring morphology symmetry of bismuth vanadate photocatalysts for efficient charge separation
Researchers have leveraged the power of the CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing system to enhance natural rubber production in rubber dandelion (Taraxacum kok-saghyz). The CRISPR system's efficiency and precision offer a promising avenue to address challenges faced by the rubber industry.
Irrecoverable carbon in the mountains: Embracing the opportunity of agroforestry
In a study published in the journal Science China Chemistry and led by Prof. Rengui Li (State Key Laboratory of Catalysis, Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences), a distinct charge separation difference has been found via rationally tailoring the morphology symmetry of BiVO4 photocatalyst.
A problem or an opportunity? App-based work separates and isolates workers from their colleagues
Over 29% of global irrecoverable carbon, which once gone is not likely to recover in any reasonable timeframe according to scientific literature, is stored in mountains. This biomass, representing irreplaceable ecosystems, biodiversity, and globally significant ecosystem services, is under threat everywhere by demographic and environmental pressures, as Earth's rapidly changing global climate is...
What does a physicist see when looking at the NFT market?
Feeling hungry, you reach for the phone in your pocket. A few taps later, your meal is delivered to your doorstep. Problem solved: you're no longer hungry. It's so quick and easy it almost feels like magic. But what actually occurs when we place our seemingly simple food order via Wolt, Foodora, or a similar app? How are the individuals working via the apps affected?
The market for collectible digital assets, or non-fungible tokens, is an interesting example of a physical system with a large scale of complexity, non-trivial dynamics, and an original logic of financial transactions. At the Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences (IFJ PAN) in Cracow, its global statistical features have been analyzed more extensively.
