Science News: SpaceX Claims Milestone With Bold Reusable Rocket Test

SpaceX Claims Milestone With Bold Reusable Rocket TestSpaceX's audacious plan to return a rocket to Earth after a space launch today (April 18) may not have gone perfectly, but the company's founder still considers it a success — one that could help lay the foundation for fully reusable rockets in the future.   SpaceX tried to guide the first stage of its Falcon 9 rocket back to Earth in an ocean splashdown today during the launch of the company's unmanned Dragon cargo capsule toward the International Space Station. It's still unclear if the rocket stage — outfitted with landing legs — touched down softly as hoped, but billionaire SpaceX founder Elon Musk thinks the odds aren't good. Still, there were some notable successes regardless of what ultimately happened to the rocket stage.


Science News: Diagnosis: Broken Medical System. Cure: Complicated (Op-Ed)

Dr. Linda S. Ellis, M.D., M.J. (Health Law) is an associate professor in the department of medical sciences at the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine at Quinnipiac University. Twenty-five years ago, when I was applying to medical school, I'm fairly certain that joke was told differently. The once-venerable medical profession has taken quite a tumble from its pedestal, with the terms "untrustworthy" and "greedy" used characterize doctors more often than "respected" and "benevolent." In the time that has passed since I was a medical student, medicine has been fraught with opposing interests and competing egos.


Science News: Drug Shortages Threaten US Anti-TB Efforts (Op-Ed)

Drug Shortages Threaten US Anti-TB Efforts (Op-Ed)Shortages of essential medicines increasingly pose a challenge to healthcare in the United States, with the number of shortages nearly tripling from 2007 to 2012. The United States has been a global leader in its efforts to eliminate TB as a public health problem. The majority of TB programs across the United States have had difficulty accessing medicines to treat TB — as well as products to diagnose the disease — due to shortages, supply interruptions and high costs.


Science News: Defining the 'Waters of the United States' (Op-Ed)

Defining the 'Waters of the United States' (Op-Ed)Greg Munson is the former General Counsel and Deputy Secretary at the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. The administration of U.S. President Barack Obama is changing a key provision in the Clean Water Act (CWA) rules, with widespread impacts expected around the country. On March 25, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Army Corps of Engineers released a draft rule defining "waters of the United States" under the CWA. The act applies to all "waters of the United States" so the new rule effectively defines its reach, and the newly released rule appears unlikely to end the controversy triggered by an earlier, leaked version.


Science News: SpaceX's Dragon 'Chases' the Space Station: See It This Weekend

SpaceX's Dragon 'Chases' the Space Station: See It This WeekendSkywatchers across parts of the United States and southern Canada will get an opportunity to watch as the private spaceflight company SpaceX's Dragon capsule "chases" the International Space Station across the sky.  Both the unmanned Dragon spacecraft and the space station will be visible as separate entities, appearing as "stars" sailing across the evening’s twilight sky. Dragon is expected to arrive at the space station on Easter Sunday (April 20) at around 7:14 a.m. EDT (1114 GMT), meaning that by Sunday evening, both will appear as a singular bright moving "star." You can watch Dragon arrive at the station live on Space.com via NASA TV Sunday. Initially, SpaceX's Dragon will trail the orbiting outpost by about 25 minutes.
