Greetings from Pennsylvania.

A Trip to Fracking Land

That’s where I am this week, leading a group of Nicholas School colleagues on an “eco-fact-finding” trip. Our objective: to learn more about shale gas drilling, including the tandem two-step of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing (collectively known as fracking) that make it all possible. Here’s a bit of what we’ve seen so far. Mysterious Maya Calendar & Mural Uncovered. "Alien" Particles Found Invading Our Solar System—A First. For the first time, a NASA spacecraft has directly observed "alien" particles that came from beyond our solar system, astronomers announced today. The discovery not only gives us a glimpse of what exists in the so-called interstellar medium—the matter between stars—but also offers clues to the anatomy of our local galactic neighborhood.

Orbiting Earth some 200,000 miles (322,000 kilometers) away, the Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) spacecraft was able to snag samples of hydrogen, oxygen, and neon that came from interstellar space. "It's exciting to be able to have these first observations of alien matter—stuff that didn't come from our sun or the planets, but came from the outside of our solar system, from other parts of the galaxy," David McComas, team leader for the IBEX program, said during a NASA news conference Tuesday. Mystery Space "Ribbon" Found at Solar System's Edge. October 15, 2009 Stevie Wonder may have been on to something when he sang about a ribbon in the sky.

Mystery Space "Ribbon" Found at Solar System's Edge

In a discovery that took astronomers by surprise, the first full-sky map of the solar system's edge—more than 9 billion miles (15 billion kilometers) away—has revealed a bright "ribbon" of atoms called ENAs. Everest. How the Mariana Trench Became Earth's Deepest Point. Solar Flare Sparks Biggest Eruption Ever Seen on Sun. {*style:<b>A mushroom of cooled plasma popped like a pimple and rained onto the surface of the sun yesterday—shooting perhaps the largest amount of solar material into space ever seen, scientists say. </b>*} This secret footage took my BREATH AWAY! - Smuggled out at GREAT RISK!!! Ozone layer is recovering, says UN. The ozone layer is regenerating, and could be back up to strength by the middle of the century, according to a UN report.

Ozone layer is recovering, says UN

It concludes that international efforts such as the Montreal Protocol are successfully protecting the ozone layer, which protects life on Earth from harmful levels of ultraviolet rays. The report, titled Scientific Assessment of Ozone Depletion 2010, was written and reviewed by around 300 scientists and is the first comprehensive update in four years. The Montreal Protocol, it says, is working. "It has protected the stratospheric ozone layer from much higher levels of depletion by phasing out production and consumption of ozone depleting substances," says the report.

Almost 100 substances once used in refrigerators, aerosols and other products have been phased out. "This in turn could have led to up to 20 million more cases of skin cancer and 130 million more cases of eye cataracts, not to speak of damage to human immune systems, wildlife and agriculture. " Nevada to consider legalizing self-driving cars.

Google's pushing for driverless cars to be made legal in Nevada.

Nevada to consider legalizing self-driving cars

It's hired lobbyist David Goldwater to promote two bills which should come to a vote by the end of June. One amends existing electric vehicle law to allow the use of driverless cars; the other, rather weirdly, would allow such cars' 'drivers' to text. Goldwater has been arguing that self-driving cars are safer than conventional cars and could reduce traffic problems as well as greenhouse emissions. If the bills are passed, Nevada will become the first region in the world where driverless cars are legal for use on the road. Google has created and demonstrated several self-driving hybrid vehicles, including six Toyota Priuses and an Audi TT. Parallel world hidden inside Earth. It seems that scientists find more and more evidence to prove the existence of parallel worlds.

Parallel world hidden inside Earth

Physicists at Stanford University managed to calculate the hypothetical number of universes that were formed as a result of the Big Bang. According to them, the Big Bang created 101016 universes. It is quite possible, though, that they may exist inside one another, including our planet. Therefore, there is probably another Earth hidden inside planet Earth. The hollow Earth theory can be traced back to ancient periods of the history of human civilization. In Ancient Greece, there was a myth about Tartar - the ominous underground world. Hypotheses about the existence of hollow space inside planet Earth appeared later as well. Secret of eternal life revealed? In a big step to understanding why people get old Japanese scientists have discovered the so-called ageing gene, local media report.

A team of Osaka University researchers have singled out the Clq protein, which protects the human system against alien agents and forms our immune system, as responsible for our getting old.
