Highest concentrations of Fukushima radiation in U.S. waters detected near San Francisco. Fears that ocean currents might carry Fukushima radiation across the Pacific Ocean to contaminate the coast of North America continue to be founded, even four and a half years since the onset of the disaster.
New research out of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution shows not only that Fukushima radiation is still percolating along the U.S. West Coast, but that current levels are at the highest ever recorded. In fact, readings from waters about 1,600 miles west of San Francisco represent the highest of all, where radioactive cesium isotopes were a significant 50 percent higher than any other samples collected along the West Coast.

And it looks like night owls may have it tougher when it comes to their overall well-being and functioning in a predominantly 9-to-5 world. In a recent study, researchers at the University of Barcelona, Spain, compared "morning people," those early birds who like to get up at dawn, and "evening people," night owls who prefer to stay up late and sleep in.

Keep your eyes peeled tonight for some spectacular fireballs lighting up the sky, like this one caught on camera in Thailand on November 2: Fireballs are extremely bright meteors, and right now Earth is in the midst of the Tuarid meteor shower, which is peaking on the night of Wednesday, Nov. 11.

Humans are not newcomers when it comes to messing around with nature. While we haven't created Frankenstein's monster yet, what we do transforms the natural world. One recent example is the creation of the coywolf — a hybrid of the coyote and the wolf that is also known as the Eastern coyote. According to a new article from The Economist, their population seems to have reached more than a million. These animals have a completely new genetic makeup: Their genes are about one-quarter wolf DNA and two-thirds coyote DNA; the rest is from domesticated dogs. Human activity likely played a role in the species' creation. Scientists think this intermixing began with wild wolves in southern Ontario about a century or two ago.
