NASA Snaps Aerial Photo Of Crash Site After Israels Failed Lunar Landing

NASA says it has captured aerial images of the Beresheet crash site following Israel’s failed lunar landing attempt last month. The spacecraft malfunctioned just seconds before attempting to touch down at an ancient volcanic field known as Sea of Serenity, or Mare Serenitatis. NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) captured the impact site photo on April 22 using a three-imager system. Taken 90 kilometers (56 miles) above the surface, the image shows a 10-meter-wide (33-foot-wide) dark smudge that looks to be where Beresheet crashed. Its darker tone is less reflective than a smooth surface, indicating an area that has been “roughened” due to something disturbing the surface of the moon. Space experts note that it is unclear whether Beresheet created a crater or …

Bacterial Clones Act As Individuals When Moving Through A Maze

Even single-celled organisms have a type of personality, in that they may respond to the same circumstances differently from others of their species. Indeed, even when compared to those with identical genetics, bacteria can reveal their individuality. Bacteria use chemical gradients to identify the direction in which they should move, either towards food or away from something that may harm them. Dr Mehdi Salek and Dr Francesco Carrara of MIT created a microscopic version of the mazes used to test animal decision-making and placed an attractant at one end. In theory, bacteria should have been able to detect the gradient in the maze and choose the forks in the road that led them to a bacterial feast. In Nature Communications, …

Swiss vote on whether to adopt the EU’s tighter gun rules

GENEVA – Swiss voters are casting ballots in a referendum to decide whether to enact new restrictions on guns and line up with Switzerland’s partners in the European visa-free travel zone who have already tightened gun rules following extremist attacks in Europe. The proposal could require regular training on the use of firearms, special waivers for possession of some semi-automatic weapons and serial-numbering of major parts of some guns to help track them. Supporters, including the Swiss parliament and executive branch, say similar measures adopted by the European Union after deadly extremist attacks in France are needed to ensure strong police cooperation and economic ties with Switzerland’s partners in Europe’s Schengen zone of visa-free travel.
