    Duke Energy says dam breached at North Carolina plant and coal ash may be flowing into Cape Fear River

    Floodwaters on Friday breached a dam that contains a man-made lake connected to a Duke Energy power plant in North Carolina, possibly causing coal ash to flow into the nearby Cape Fear River, the company said. The floodwaters flowed from Cape Fear River into the northern side of Sutton Lake, an 1,100-acre reservoir built in 1972 to cool the L.V. Sutton Power Station. That water caused breaches in the dam on the south end of the lake, which was flowing back into the river, Duke Energy said in a p...

    This image could contain hundreds of nearby undiscovered planets — including a few like Earth

    NASA has released the first image from its new space telescope. TESS, short for Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite, is helping scientists detect and study new planets in other solar systems. The telescope launched in April on a SpaceX rocket, and on July 25, TESS slipped into a unique orbit between Earth and the moon. The telescope is now scanning the night sky, staring down distant solar systems, and hunting for small, rocky, Earth-like planets.

    NASA's $1 Million Mars-Settling Challenge: Turn CO2 into Sugar

    If you know your way around a chemistry lab, you could help humanity set up shop on Mars — and make some serious cash in the process. NASA is challenging people throughout the United States to come up with a new and efficient way to convert carbon dioxide into glucose, a simple sugar. CO2 dominates the thin atmosphere of Mars, and energy-rich glucose is a great fuel for microbe-milking "bioreactors" that could manufacture a variety of items for future settlers of the Red Planet, NASA...

    McCain Was Such A Climate Change Maverick That He Undermined His Own Good Work

    Climate change is one of the issues on which the late Sen. John McCain was roundly praised for bucking his party. But McCain was arguably the reason we don’t have a sane climate law in place right now. The Arizona Republican’s early work on climate change with then-Democratic Sen. Joe Lieberman (Conn.) was indeed groundbreaking, producing the 2003 and 2005 iterations of the proposed Climate Stewardship Act. While those bills had little chance of success, they were presented at a time when th...

    15 years ago, we sequenced the human genome. Now we can 3D map it.

    It's a really important step to understanding the subtle ways genes actually work. In 2003, researchers sequenced the human genome for the first time, writing out all 3 billion of the DNA base pairs that dictate every aspect of our makeup. Now, a new team of researchers has figured out a way to create a 3D image of this valuable roadmap to human biology.
