    Golocal247.com news

    An emergency response volunteer went into cardiac arrest while helping to remove bodies from the scene of a “horrific” car accident in which two teenage siblings and a 70-year-old man were killed. Eric Neibaur, 15, and his 13-year-old sister Lauren Neibaur died when their pick-up truck collided with Jay Lanningham’s vehicle on a major road in the US state of Idaho. Police said a member of the local search and rescue unit had to be revived with a portable defibrillator after his heart stopped at the scene of the crash, reported the Idaho State Journal.

  • NASA's Curiosity rover has a pet rock on Mars

    Golocal247.com news

    Mars is probably a pretty lonely place.  The red planet is littered with rusty red rocks and, as far as we know, devoid of any kind of life. But even so, rovers still roam the surface of the world on humanity's behalf, making their solitary treks along previously unexplored paths.  And sometimes, they make friends.  SEE ALSO: NASA photo captures the loneliness of the Mars Curiosity rover NASA's Curiosity rover — which has been exploring the red planet's Gale Crater since 2012 — appears to have a little pet rock caught in one of its wheels.  The rock got stuck in the right front wheel at some point in the last couple weeks, but scientists aren't exactly sure when it started hitching a ride because the rover doesn't snap photos of its wheels every day. Sol 1729 and 1730 MAHLI images of the hitchhiker rock pic.twitter.com/m5SEYXyrep — Lars (@LarsTheWanderer) June 19, 2017 This isn't the first time a rock has gotten caught in Curiosity's shoe, according to Emily Lakdawalla, a planetary scientist writing a book about the rover. Lakdawalla said that NASA and other interested folks back on Earth keep an eye on Curiosity's wheels and the rocks that might pop up in them as it roams the Martian surface. Scientists also spotted another rock, which appeared in that same right front wheel starting in January and disappearing by April, according to Ashwin Vasavada, a Curiosity project scientist.  The current pet rock was seen in photos taken on Sol (Mars day) 1729 and 1730, which translates to June 17 and June 18 on Earth.  "We don’t exactly know how the rocks get in the wheels, but it’s likely that they can hop in as the wheels (and heavy rover) break rocks and sink into the soil around loose rocks," Vasavada said via email. As for the rock's effect on Curiosity's wheels, it seems to be pretty benign.  MARS FACT: All rocks on Mars are freeloading stowaways. pic.twitter.com/m8nSdVUXE4 — SarcasticRover (@SarcasticRover) June 20, 2017 The rocks are small and relatively soft, Vasavada said, so they shouldn't pose too much of an issue to the long-running rover's movements. However, it's always possible that something unexpected could happen.  "There are some bad scenarios, such as when a rock gets jammed and makes a larger hole in a wheel, or if a rock interferes with some cables that run to the wheel motors," Vasavada said. "But we don’t think those are credible problems with these small rocks." Scientists have Curiosity take these photos of its wheels to keep an eye on any holes that have developed in the rover's machinery.  The holes in Curiosity's wheels are a sign of the wear and tear the rover has taken on during its years of work on the red planet, but for the moment, the worn wheels are still functioning well.  And hey, at least Curiosity has a friend.

  • US Energy Secretary Rick Perry told he lacks 'fundamental understanding' of climate science

    Golocal247.com news

    The American Meteorological Society has told Rick Perry he lacks a ‘fundamental understanding’ of science after the US Energy Secretary claimed carbon dioxide was not a primary cause of climate change. The former governor of Texas told CNBC TV that “the most likely the primary control knob [for climate change] is the ocean waters and this environment that we live in”, rather than greenhouse gas emissions produced by human activity. Becoming the latest of Donald Trump’s administration to dispute established science without any attempt at reasoned argument, Mr Perry also said it was “quite all right” to be a sceptic about climate change, suggesting the trait was one held by any “wise, intellectually engaged person”.

"In the early morning, I climbed up to the roof of my house and was stunned to see the Hadba minaret had gone," Nashwan, a day-laborer who lives near the mosque, said by phone.

  • An asteroid is definitely going to hit the Earth, expert warns

    Golocal247.com news

    Space is a dangerous place to be, and since the Earth is in space, every living thing on the planet is at risk of eventually feeling its wrath. Asteroids are the most clear and present threat that our Solar System poses to us, and you only need to look at the scars on the Earth, our moon, and other planets in our neighborhood to see exactly how real that danger is. Now, a Queen's University Belfast researcher is warning that the Earth is definitely going to be hit, it's just a matter of when. The expert, Alan Fitzsimmons, points out that an event similar to that of the 1908 meteoroid explosion over the Tunguska region in Russia's Siberia — which leveled a forest and damaged buildings but didn't result in any human deaths — could happen again, and if it did happen over a major city, the results would be devastating. "Astronomers find near-Earth asteroids every day and most are harmless," Fitzsimmons reportedly said. "But it is still possible the next Tunguska would take us by surprise, and although we are much better at finding larger asteroids, that does us no good if we are not prepared to do something about them." It's a fitting warning as we approach June 30th, which is observed as Astroid Day. On June 30th, researchers and former astronauts will host a live stream to answer questions from the general public which are sourced from social media. You can bet there will be plenty of talk about the potential for collisions with near-Earth objects, so if such a thing interests you, it's a great time to get the facts straight from the experts.

The findings are based on an analysis of nearly 10,000 women with mutations in either the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene, mutations that are known to increase the risk of breast and ovarian cancer. The new study is more rigorously designed than some earlier research that looked at how much the risk for these cancers increases in women who have these genetic mutations.

  • New photos show us what the final Model 3 design will probably look like

    Golocal247.com news

    Tesla's final Model 3 unveiling is set to take place next month, but an enterprising Redditor happened to spot a Model 3 charging at a Supercharger station in California and managed to take the most detailed and instructive photos we've seen yet. Whereas most of the Model 3 photos we've seen in recent weeks have been taken of a Model 3 in motion, the most recent crop of Model 3 photos were carefully taken while the car was sitting still. What's more, the Tesla employee driving the car reportedly told the Redditor that the Model 3 design is "pretty much" final at this point. While this is admittedly a second-hand blurb, it stands to reason that this is indeed accurate given that July is right around the corner. So without further ado, featured below are a series of photos which provide us with our crispest look yet at what the shipping version of the Model 3 is actually going to look like. The front-on view is essentially similar to what we've seen from the beginning, with the Model 3 below in the center and flanked by two Model S vehicles. And now a side view for good measure. A shot of the Model 3 from the rear. A close-up shot of the interior gives us our first solid look at what the final steering wheel design may look like. Alas, this is a far cry from the spaceship style design Elon Musk promised on Twitter many months back. https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/716729420078133248 Moving along, this shot of the interior showcases an elegant wood trim, in line with other Model 3 spy shots we've seen over the past few weeks. Note that the display on the Model 3 is 15-inches and a tad smaller than the display that comes standard on both the Model S and the Model X. Not much too see here, just a Model 3 getting some juice. And last but not least, pictured below is a Model 3 with a decidedly unorthodox rims. Pictures aside, we also have a pretty firm grasp on what type of specs the Model 3 will bring to the table. According to an official product sheet from Tesla that was released not too long ago, the entry level Model 3 will have a 0-60 time of 5.6 seconds and a minimum range of 215 miles on a single charge.
