Study identifies genetic mutations among children of soldiers exposed to radiation

Study identifies genetic mutations among children of soldiers exposed to radiation

Science
Oct. 5 (UPI) -- Scientists have identified a pattern of genetic mutation among the children of soldiers exposed to radar. Prior to the 1990s, most radar systems were poorly insulated. Those operating and working in close proximity to the systems were regularly exposed to the unconfined radiation. Today, the radiation emitted by radar systems is well-contained and soldiers are better protected. However, some soldiers exposed to radiation in the 1970s and 1980s -- so-called "radar soldiers" -- have experienced health problems after leaving the service. New research suggests the effects of radiation also explain genetic mutations among the children of radar soldiers. Families affected by radiation exposure have raised concerns about radiation's generation impacts, but until now, the science ...

New image shows exposed bedrock in Hale Crater on Mars

Science
May 31 (UPI) -- NASA has released a new image from its Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter that shows the red planet's Hale Crater -- a large impact crater with more than 62 miles of intriguing physical features. The crater contains active gullies, extensive icy ejecta flows and active recurring slope lineae, which are long marks that are dark or bright. NASA has released images of these recurring slope lineae within the crater before. In 2015, the agency suspected that the streaks, which appeared to flow downhill, were caused by contemporary flowing water. Planetary scientists had recently discovered hydrated salts -- trace amounts of water mixed with heavy doses of salts -- on the slopes of the crater, which the agency said at the time confirmed the theory. Similar features on Earth are caused...
