Scientists work to keep NASA's space telescope in the dark

Science
Sept. 12 (UPI) -- NASA scientists are taking on the vital task of ensuring unwanted infrared light does not interfere with the optical testing of the James Webb Space Telescope."One of the challenges of testing an infrared telescope is that room-temperature objects [such as the walls of the vacuum chamber itself, or the warm electronics systems inside it] glow at the wavelengths of light that the telescope is trying to measure," Randy Kimble, a scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., said in a press release. "If not carefully controlled, that warm glow can provide an unwanted background in the telescope's images, which would compromise the optical testing."Due to the telescope's extreme sensitivity to infrared light, scientists are using a cold, gaseous helium sh...

In the 80s, you used to talk about the bond market vigilantes who would actually impose some discipline on policymakers if you started going crazy as far as the deficit were concerned. Now because of QE and all the rest of it, it...
Farming practices need to change to keep up with climate change, researchers say

Farming practices need to change to keep up with climate change, researchers say

Science
Aug. 4 (UPI) -- Scientists from Lancaster University suggest major changes in agricultural practices are needed to offset increases in nutrient losses due to climate change.The study, published this week in Nature Communications, shows that phosphorus losses will continue to increase due to climate change unless major changes in agricultural practices are made.Repeated, damaging storm events as a result of climate change have increased the amount of nutrient losses in runoff from agricultural farms.Farmers already are taking measures to conserve nutrients from being lost to runoff but researchers warn it may not be enough."The warmer, wetter winters predicted for the future will result in more phosphorus transferred from agricultural land into the rivers and ultimately the oceans," Profess...
Autism patients: GPs in England urged to keep register

Autism patients: GPs in England urged to keep register

Health
GPs in England are being encouraged to keep a register of patients with autism in order to improve the care they receive.Health chiefs say a register would alert GPs to the specific needs of adults and children with autism and help tailor services for them.The National Autistic Society said it would "help improve the health and wellbeing of autistic people".But getting a quick diagnosis was still an issue, a child autism charity said.Autism is a lifelong, developmental disability that affects how a person communicates with and relates to other people, and how they experience the world around them.GPs in England already keep a register of patients with learning disabilities, and the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence thinks patients with autism should be easily identified by ...
