ALS-related gene found with help from Ice Bucket Challenge

The ALS Association is crediting money raised through the Ice Bucket Challenge for the discovery of a gene's connection to the progressive disease. Those who accepted the challenge allowed buckets of ice water to be dumped on their heads to raise awareness and money for ALS. The challenge became a ...

European Space Agency cuts radio link to comet lander

The European Space Agency says it is switching off its radio link to the probe that landed on a comet, after receiving no signal from the lander for a year. The agency says the decision to shut down a communications instrument on the Rosetta spacecraft Wednesday was taken to conserve ...

In this undated image provided by Adam Summers, a University of Washington professor in the department of Biology and the School of Aquatic and Fisheries Sciences, a scan of the Thoracocarax Stellatus species of fish is shown, with color added by computer to enhance the rendering of the structure of the bones. Summers is using a micro computed tomography, also known as "CT," scanner at a lab on Washington's San Juan Island as part of an ambitious project to scan and digitize more than 25,000 species in the world.

Washington scientist launches effort to digitize all fish

University of Washington biology professor Adam Summers no longer has to coax hospital staff to use their CT scanners so he can visualize the inner structures of stingray and other fish. Last fall, he installed a small computed tomography, or CT, scanner at the UW's Friday Harbor Laboratories on San ...

Cooking oil, graphene among CO2 capture prize entry ideas

Cooking oil and graphene, a recently discovered substance stronger than steel, might seem to have little in common, but some theorize both could be made from carbon dioxide emitted by coal- and gas-fired power plants. Teams from Canada, China, Finland, India, Scotland, Switzerland and the U.S. have submitted 47 proposals ...

In this Tuesday, July 26, 2016 photo, a black-footed ferret looks out from its carrier in the Meeteetse Schools parking lot as it waits with other black-footed ferrets to be released on the Pitchfork and Hogg Ranches near Meeteetse, Wyo. The nocturnal species of weasel with a robber-mask-like marking across its eyes returned to the remote ranchlands of western Wyoming where the critter almost went extinct more than 30 years ago.

Black-footed ferrets return to where they held out in wild

A nocturnal species of weasel with a robber-mask-like marking across its eyes has returned to the remote ranchlands of western Wyoming where the critter almost went extinct more than 30 years ago. Wildlife officials on Tuesday released 35 black-footed ferrets on two ranches near Meeteetse, a tiny cattle ranching community ...

FILE - This Oct. 1, 2014, file photo shows a black-footed ferret peeking out of a tube after being brought to a ranch near Williams, Ariz. The endangered weasel is returning to an area of western Wyoming where the critter almost went extinct more than 30 years ago. Biologists plan to release 35 black-footed ferrets Tuesday, July 26, 2016, near Meeteetse, Wyo. Scientists thought the black-footed ferret was extinct until a dog brought a dead one home near Meeteetse in 1981. (AP Photo/Felicia Fonseca, File)

In this photo provided by Geoffrey Williams, a drone honey bee emerges from a honeycomb. A new study out of the University of Bern in Switzerland found that the common insecticide neonicotinoid reduces the amount of live sperm in drone honey bees by 39 percent. Honey bee drones’ main job is to inseminate the queen and then they die. (Geoffrey Williams, University of Bern via AP)

Study: Common pesticide appears to reduce live bee sperm

A new study finds that a commonly used insecticide kills much of the sperm created by male drone honey bees, one reason why the bees are dwindling. The class of insecticide called neonicotinoids didn't kill the drones. But bees that ate treated pollen produced 39 percent less live sperm than ...

Russian authorities evacuate nomads after anthrax outbreak

Russian authorities are evacuating nomadic reindeer herders and quarantining part of a Siberian region after an outbreak of anthrax killed more than 1,000 of their animals. The appearance of the bacterial disease in the Yamalo-Nenets region is the first fatal anthrax outbreak reported in Russia for 75 years. The governor's ...

The Solar Impulse 2 plane approaches to land at Al Bateen Executive Airport in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, on Tuesday, July 26, 2016. The world’s first ever round-the-world flight to be powered solely by the sun’s energy made history with its landing in the Emirati capital, where it first took off on an epic 22,000-mile (35,000 kilometer) journey more than a year ago (AP Photo/Adam Schreck)

Historic solar flight marks first round-the-world journey

The world's first round-the-world flight to be powered solely by the sun's energy made history on Tuesday as it landed in Abu Dhabi, where it first took off on an epic 25,000-mile (40,000-kilometer) journey that began more than a year ago. Since its March 2015 take off, the Swiss-engineered Solar ...
