Science News: To Capture the Milky Way, Capture the Landscape

To Capture the Milky Way, Capture the LandscapeMike Taylor is an accomplished landscape astrophotographer and an instructor for night photography and post-processing. As a night photography instructor, I'm always encouraging students to integrate inspiring landscape elements in their photographs to create stunning night-sky compositions. During a recent trip to Utah, I came across an iconic, gnarly tree clinging to the top of the canyon wall at Dead Horse Point State Park, and I knew I had to incorporate it into some astrophotographs. While one of my cameras shot time-lapse footage of the Milky Way moving across the sky behind the tree, I set up another camera to capture a 16-image panorama that features the full Milky Way arc and covers 240 degrees of view from north (left) to south (right).

Science News: When is Sleepiness Due to Narcolepsy?

Nearly 40 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders, according to the National Sleep Foundation. Narcolepsy , a condition that causes excessive daytime sleepiness, is a rare but significant sleep disorder. While the most evident symptom is daytime sleepiness, narcoleptic patients might also experience other symptoms. Other symptoms include sleep paralysis, the temporary inability to speak or move while falling asleep or upon waking, and hypnogogic hallucinations, which are dream-like, sometimes terrifying, hallucinations that occur during the transition from wakefulness to sleep.

Science News: Largest-Ever U.S. 'Critical Habitat' Set for Loggerheads

Largest-Ever U.S. 'Critical Habitat' Set for LoggerheadsAmanda Keledjian, a marine scientist at Oceana, contributed this article to Live Science's Expert Voices: Op-Ed & Insights.  Earlier this month, sea turtles gained a huge victory when the U.S. federal government announced the largest designation of critical habitat in the nation's history for the loggerhead sea turtles on the Atlantic Coast and in the Gulf of Mexico. The National Marine Fisheries Service and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service made a joint announcement last week to designate 685 miles of beaches and more than 300,000 square miles of ocean as protected habitat for the creatures and their ecosystem. Loggerheads spend most of their lives in the water, where they migrate tens of thousands of miles over their lifetimes to feed, grow, mate and nest.

Science News: Only Zoo Keepers Get to Feed the Penguins (Op-Ed)

Only Zoo Keepers Get to Feed the Penguins (Op-Ed)Nora Beirne, a senior keeper at the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), contributed this article to Live Science's Expert Voices: Op-Ed & Insights.  When I went to The College of New Jersey, I was an English major, but I took several pre-med classes. Then, in my senior year, Pat Thomas — associate director of the Bronx Zoo and vice president and general curator for the Wildlife Conservation Society — gave a talk to the biology department. In six years as a zoo keeper, I've trained red pandas for injections, fed black bears jelly off a spoon and held a komodo dragon.
