Orion spacecraft ready to return humans to deep space, officials say

Science
ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 16 (UPI) -- The anticipated return to deep space in 2024 for the first time in nearly 50 years brings a unique set of challenges that only one spacecraft on the planet currently can meet, officials with Lockheed Martin said at a global space event this week. Life support and radiation shielding systems on NASA's Orion spacecraft, built by Lockheed, make it qualified for deep space missions -- those beyond low-Earth orbit where the International Space Station is situated, said Shelby Hopkins, senior systems engineer for Lockheed's Orion program.

"It's very common," says Jess Hanham casually, when asked how often he finds suspected unexploded bombs.Mr Hanham is a co-founder of Spectrum Offshore, a marine survey firm that does a lot of work in the Thames Estuary.His firm undertakes all sorts of marine surveying, but working on sites for new offshore wind farms has become a big business for him.Work in the Thames Estuary, and other areas that were the targets of bombing in World War 2, are likely to involve picking up signals of unexploded munitions."You can find a significant amount of contacts that need further investigation and for a wind farm that will be established in the initial pre-engineering survey," he says. ...
Changes in oxygen, temperature could reshape deep sea fish communities

Changes in oxygen, temperature could reshape deep sea fish communities

Science
March 5 (UPI) -- The size and complexity of marine ecosystems make it difficult to predict the effects of climate change, especially on deep sea communities. But thanks to the efforts of a team of marine biologists and oceanographers, scientists are gaining a better understanding of the influence of oxygen and temperature on the density and diversity of deep sea fish populations. The study, led by scientists with the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego and the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, focused on demersal fish communities in the Gulf of California. Demersal fish are fish that live close to the seafloor. Their data and observations showed fish diversity dramatically declines in regions with very low levels of oxygen, concentrations...
