NASA eyeing another attempted launch for Artemis I moon mission in 2 weeks

Science
Sept. 8 (UPI) -- NASA said on Thursday that after two failed attempts last week, the next launch attempt for the first Artemis moon mission and first flight of the massive SLS rocket is at least two weeks away. The first attempt on Aug. 29 was canceled due to a fuel leak and a bad sensor on one of the main engines. The next, last Saturday, was scrubbed again due to a fuel leak.

NASA Associate Director Jim Free said those dates were chosen because they don't conflict with other activities at the Kennedy Space Center on those days. Free and NASA officials Mike Bolger and John Blevins stressed during the briefing Thursday that the type of hyd...

Study: One in 12 Canadians with migraines has attempted suicide

Health
April 4 (UPI) -- Researchers have unveiled a link between migraines, violence and suicide attempts, a new study says. Canadian adults with migraines who saw their parents engaged in domestic violence had a 67 percent higher risk of attempting suicide when they got older, according to findings published in the Archives of Suicide Research. The study also showed that adults with migraines who were sexually abused as children had three times the risk of attempting suicide.

"Even after taking into account most of the known risk factors for suicide attempts, those with migraines had 77 percent higher odds of having attempted suicide in comparison to those without mig...
