New images from NASA illustrate the devastating impact of the wildfires in Australia. Before and after images from NASA's Terra satellite show the island's burn scars. "Caring for all these animals is quite unbelievable", said Sam Mitchell, co-owner of the Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park. The loss of vegetation and wildlife is a disturbing outcome of the wildfires throughout the country.
National Astronomical Research Institution of Thailand (NARIT)'s Chief of Academic Services Section Suphareuk Khareuhanon said that the meteor shower will create "shooting stars" best viewed during the peak of the phenomenon, from 2:30am until dawn tomorrow.
Following separation from the rocket's upper stage, the spacecraft's engines will be fired carrying it into its designated orbit and onto its rendezvous with the ISS. This could delay the planned crewed flight of the Starliner next summer. Boeing and rival USA company SpaceX are independently developing systems to launch astronauts into space from the U.S.
The X-59 hopes to change the negative reputation of supersonic aircraft with a design that mitigates the boom and produces little more than a soft "thud". The government agency said that "it will be flown above select US communities to generate data from sensors and people on the ground in order to gauge public perception", as well as help establish new rules for commercial supersonic air travel.
As of Tuesday morning, weather conditions were deemed to be 90% favorable for the Wednesday morning launch. Launches to the space station have instantaneous launch windows to catch the station in orbit. Two robotic leak detectors will be stored in the toolbox, for example. However, over its lifetime, the space station has accumulated occasional small ammonia leaks at its joints, often as a result of micrometeroids.
Meanwhile, nine of the top 10 years where conditions were most ripe for dengue fever transmission have occurred since 2000, the report said. The Lancet notes that if we intervene now to keep warming down and find ways to adapt, the savings to the health system and economic productivity down the road will in many places more than pay for the costs of those interventions.
The whole 5½-hour occasion will be obvious, assuming the rainclouds blow over, in the eastern USA furthermore, Canada, and all Central and South America.

A storm surge watch is in effect from Indian Pass to Clearwater, Fla. "On the forecast track, the system will approach the northern Gulf coast Friday and Friday night", the NHC said .
For the first time, scientists captured a view of a colossal black hole violently ripping apart a doomed star from beginning to end using NASA's planet-hunting telescope. These giant black holes are objects located at the nucleus of most large galaxies, including our Milky Way. The dark gap's huge gravitational powers tear the star to shreds, with a portion of its material hurled into space and the rest diving into the dark opening, shaping a plate of hot, brilliant gas as it is gulped.
Courmayeur mayor Stefano Miserocchi closed down a mountain road and banned access to part of the Val Ferret, a popular hiking area outside of town on the southern side of the Mont Blanc massif.
