Authorities were able to tranquilize the moose, and six firefighters helped carry it out on a stretcher intended for a large human.
According to the state’s wildlife officials, there were about 1,000 birds in 1978. Today, the population is estimated between 30,000 and 35,000 birds.
John McFall, a 41-year-old British former Paralympian who lost his right leg in a motorcycle accident when he was 19, called his selection “a real turning point and mark in history.”
With its deep-space data relay network performing better than expected, NASA has set up a live video stream from the Orion capsule as it heads toward lunar orbit.
As NASA’s Orion capsule swung out from behind the moon Monday, onboard cameras sent back a picture of Earth — a blue dot surrounded by blackness.
This massive sea turtle existed more than 70 million years ago and could have reached a body length of up to about 12 feet, researchers said.
The top half of the "hourglass" reveals clouds of gas and dust in shades of orange and bronze, while clouds on the bottom half are awash in blues and lavenders.
The West Coast will benefit from a large dome of high pressure helping to provide clear skies for the Leonid meteor Shower. However, much of the U.S. is facing cold temperatures that will make sky gazing a winter sport.
Kenyan reporter Alvin Kaunda had an important message for viewers about human impacts on the environment. A nearby baby elephant had other concerns.
“We have discovered an amazing number of potentially new species living in this remote marine park,” the institute’s chief scientist Dr. Tim O’Hara said.
NASA says a risky repair job appears to have fixed the hydrogen fuel leak that threatened to delay a third attempt to send the Space Launch System rocket and Orion spacecraft on a test flight known as Artemis I, and liftoff could be minutes away.
The Artemis I mission’s rocket engines and boosters have direct ties to Columbia, Challenger and each of the other shuttles, and even one of the original Mercury 7 astronauts.
Call it one small step for tiny astronauts. There may not be a human crew aboard NASA’s Artemis I mission, but there will be four small LEGO astronauts keeping an eye on the Orion capsule’s flight to the moon.
The iconic red NASA "worm" logo, the bright orange fuel tank, and the sheer size of the new SLS rocket may be the first things most people notice. But a closer look reveals a striking pattern of black and white markings.
NASA’s Artemis program has deep figurative roots that go back to the Apollo moon missions of the 1960s and 1970s. And soon, it will have literal roots as well.
The study findings may help future efforts to better understand the origins of eating disorders and how they differ between sexes, researchers said.
NASA started the countdown Monday for this week’s planned liftoff of its new moon rocket, although hurricane damage could cause yet another delay for the test flight.
While the Artemis I rocket suffered some minor damage while on the launch pad during Hurricane Nicole, NASA said Friday some of that damage had already been repaired – or will be repaired – and should not impact next week's planned launch at Florida's Kennedy Space Center.
The video has racked up thousands of views on Instagram.
“It became clear that the specimen was unlike any species paleontologists had seen before,” geology professor Scott Persons told FOX Television Stations.
