I-95 reopens in North Carolina 10 days after Hurricane Florence

Sen. Michael Lee of Wilmington, Rep. Craig Horn of Weddington and state Superintendent Mark Johnson also discussed adjusting the school calendar law to address lost classroom time because of closures. The deluge has made its way so slowly down the Lumber, Pee Dee and Waccamaw rivers that the state last week released detailed maps on where it expects flooding. Consulte Mais Informação

Over 84,000 without power in North Carolina after Florence

Over 84,000 without power in North Carolina after Florence

Roy Cooper said in a press conference Saturday morning. In North Carolina , a familiar story was unfolding as many places that flooded in Hurricane Matthew in 2016 were once again inundated. More than 18 million litres of partially treated sewage spilled into the Cape Fear River after power went out at a treatment plant , officials said, and the earthen dam of a pond holding hog waste was breached, spilling its contents.

Study Shows Ancient Mars Had The Right Conditions For Underground Life

They discovered that Mars likely had a global surface that was habitable for several kilometers in thickness, and which would have persisted for hundreds of millions of years. Data from the gamma ray spectrometer that rides the Odyssey spacecraft around Mars was crucial for the research team, who figured out the surface concentrations of radioactive elements thorium and potassium, which also told them how much uranium was also in the soil.

Whale hello there! Beluga spotted eating in River Thames

Whale hello there! Beluga spotted eating in River Thames

Consultant Ecologist & Ornithologist Dave Andrews managed to film the whale, and shared a video on Twitter this morning. "As awesome as a beluga whale in the River Thames is, it poses a potentially tragic fate for it". The animal welfare group says it is ready to provide help to the whale if asked to do so by other agencies. "Beluga whales are not usually seen in British waters, so it's very rare", spokeswoman for the organization Julia Cable said. Consulte Mais Informação

The government said it anticipates that all the current products will continue to be protected by the EU's geographical indication schemes, which prevent them being imitated throughout the bloc. Amid warnings that trucks could stack up on both sides of the English Channel in the confusion of a no deal, Britain said it would seek to strike bilateral agreements with European countries to ensure hauliers would retain access.

Japan's Hayabusa2 Spacecraft Successfully Deploys Landers To Asteroid Ryugu's Surface

Japan's Hayabusa2 Spacecraft Successfully Deploys Landers To Asteroid Ryugu's Surface

In one of the coolest ever space missions, the country's Hayabusa 2 space probe reached its destination and successfully deployed two landers on the surface of asteroid Ryugu. From this crater, the probe will collect "fresh" materials unexposed to millennia of wind and radiation, hoping for answers to some fundamental questions about life and the universe, including whether elements from space helped give rise to life on Earth.

Hayabusa 2: Japan's mission to land rovers on asteroid Ryugu

Hayabusa 2: Japan's mission to land rovers on asteroid Ryugu

The robots will take advantage of the asteroid's low gravity, jumping around on the surface - soaring as high as 15 metres (49ft) and staying in the air for as long as 15 minutes - to survey the asteroid's physical features. The rovers move by "hopping" up to 15 metres at a time because the extremely weak gravity on the asteroid makes rolling hard. The probe will also release a French-German landing vehicle named Mobile Asteroid Surface Scout (Mascot) for surface observation. Consulte Mais Informação

Japanese asteroid probe sends hopping rovers down to space rock's surface

Japanese asteroid probe sends hopping rovers down to space rock's surface

The solar panelled-powered rovers move by "hopping" because the extremely weak gravity on the asteroid makes rolling hard. Dropping robotic rovers on Ryugu surface is also an important part of this mission. "We are very hopeful", said Yuichi Tsuda, one of the project leaders from JAXA, at a press conference. "Now we are working on confirmation of receipt of images from the landing MINERVA-II1". Consulte Mais Informação

Here’s where Tropical Storm Kirk is Sunday and where it’s going

Forecasters say Tropical Storm Kirk is continuing to move west across the eastern Atlantic but does not now pose any threat to land. Its tropical storm-force winds extend 70 miles from its center, forecasters said. It is moving rapidly to the west at 18 miles per hour. The latest forecast says that "onditions are expected to become conducive for the low to acquire subtropical or tropical characteristics, and a subtropical or tropical cyclone is likely to form by early next week while the ...

Huge spider web covers 1,000ft of land

Huge spider web covers 1,000ft of land

Experts believe that an increase in the number of mosquitoes in the area has also played a crucial role in the creation of this very big spider web. "They mate, they reproduce and provide a whole new generation". Humid conditions are said to be behind the appearance of the arachnids. Giannakopoulos said it appeared the spiders were gathering on the eastern side of the beach, adding there was a "huge veil" of them covering palm trees and other vegetation. Consulte Mais Informação

Japanese billionaire will be the first tourist of the Moon

Japanese billionaire will be the first tourist of the Moon

This will require a lot of training but whenever it's the first flight of something on a new technology and we are talking about deep space, you have to be a very courageous person to do that. The latest blueprints mark the final major redesign of the rocket, whose development is expected to cost roughly $5 billion, according to Musk. The average distance from Earth to the moon is about 237,700 miles. Consulte Mais Informação
