SpaceX's CRS-19 mission on the pad ahead of liftoff from Cape Canaveral. RELL is a robotic tool operated remotely by mission controllers on the ground, created to facilitate space station repairs, but requires crew schedule and airlock availability to bring RELL outside the station with the use of station's Dextre robotic tool.

In Canada, Lyme-infested ticks are marching their way north. The Paris Local weather treaty of 2015 enjoins nations to restrict temperature rises to 2C, or ideally to 1.5C if doable. "Fossil fuel consumption is at the heart of health care's emissions", said Dr. Jean Zigby, a Montreal-based family physician who serves on the board of directors of the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment (CAPE).

Andrew Steer, president and CEO of the World Resources Institute, said the move was "cruel to future generations, leaving the world less safe and productive". "It'd be impossible to urge President ( Donald) Trump to reverse the decision", Koizumi said. But they are no substitute for coordinated national and worldwide leadership to address climate change .

The study involved six female and 11 male rats, who the researchers taught to pilot little cars with aluminium floors and three copper bars serving as a steering mechanisms. The practical takeaway from all of this is that scientists could substitute driving tests like this one for more traditional maze tests to study things like the effects of Parkinson's disease on motor skills and spatial awareness.

The National Weather Service is predicting an area of storms off the eastern coast of Mexico will organize and could become a named tropical or subtropical storm by Thursday night . Systems that develop with the help of the jet stream often start out as subtropical depressions or storms because there is cold air aloft involved, in addition to the energy from the warm water of the Gulf.

Author: 0 Draconids 2019: When is the Draconid meteor shower? When is the peak?

AccuWeather says Draconids are considered a minor meteor shower with only about 10 "shooting stars " per hour, but the event could fill the sky with hundreds of meteors. Similar to the Draconids, the Southern Taurids are a minor shower with fewer than 10 meteors per hour, but don't let the slim numbers discourage you.

The blurry image fails to give the proper information on how the gravity at the black hole works. Patrick Vallely, a co-author of the study and National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow at Ohio State, said, "We were very lucky with this event in that the patch of the sky where TESS is continuously observing is small, and in that this happened to be one of the brightest tidal disruption events we've seen".

Author: 0 Mont Blanc glacier could collapse, experts warn BBC News

But officials say the glacier's precarious status was the result of a climate emergency that had already begun, and over which an global group of scientists sounded yet another alarm this week. "This glacier is atypical because it's temperate, and so is influenced by the temperature of the water flowing below, which particularly exposes it to the global warming in progress", said the foundation's secretary-general Jean Pierre Fosson.
