Science News: 'Astronaut Wives Club' Begins Filming for 2015 Launch on ABC

'Astronaut Wives Club' Begins Filming for 2015 Launch on ABCThe first meeting of the Astronaut Wives Club — the made-for-TV-version, that is — has convened in New Orleans. "We're blasting off for the first big day of shooting,'" wrote actress JoAnna Garcia Swisher, who plays astronaut Gus Grissom's wife Betty, on Twitter. The pilot episode, which is aptly titled "Launch" as shown in photos of the script's cover page posted by some of the series' other actresses on Instagram, follows the spouses of the "original Mercury 7," NASA's first seven astronauts selected in 1959. The episode is being directed by Danish filmmaker Lone Scherfig ("An Education"), who replaced Nick Cassavetes ("The Notebook," "Face/Off") in August after the series slipped to 2015.

Science News: 'Biggest Risk' in Ebola Protection Is Gear Removal

A "breach in protocol" is what led a nurse in Dallas to become the first person infected with Ebola in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The nurse was involved in treating Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan, and her case has researchers trying to figure out exactly what went wrong with the safety protocols. Guidelines for health care workers recommend using personal protective equipment, including gloves, a fluid-resistant gown, goggles or a face shield and a face mask. They also recommend certain techniques — such as turning gloves inside out when removing them — that allow workers to safely remove the equipment after contact with an Ebola patient.

Science News: Earthquake Forecast: 4 California Faults Are Ready to Rupture

Earthquake Forecast: 4 California Faults Are Ready to RuptureWith several faults slicing through the San Francisco Bay Area, forecasting the next deadly earthquake becomes a question of when and where, not if. The quartet includes the Hayward Fault, the Rodgers Creek Fault, the Green Valley Fault and the Calaveras Fault. While all are smaller pieces of California's San Andreas Fault system, which is more than 800 miles (1,300 kilometers) long, the four faults are a serious threat because they directly underlie cities. "The Hayward Fault is just right in the heart of where people live, and the most buildings and the most infrastructure," said Jim Lienkaemper, lead study author and a research geophysicist at the U.S.

Science News: Broccoli Extract May Reduce Autism Symptoms

A chemical called sulforaphane derived from broccoli sprouts may help improve symptoms in some people with autism, a small new study suggests. The study looked at 40 boys and men with autism, who were between ages 13 and 27. For 18 weeks, 26 of the participants received between 9 and 27 milligrams of sulforaphane daily (depending on their weight), while the remaining 14 participants received a placebo. "We believe that this may be preliminary evidence for the first treatment for autism that improves symptoms by apparently correcting some of the underlying cellular problems," Dr. Paul Talalay, a professor of pharmacology and molecular sciences at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, said in a statement.
