With the downing of flight MH17, tensions between Russia and the United States over Ukraine have reached a new high. New tougher sanctions have been put in place, targeting Russia's finance, defence and energy sectors. But Russia may have found a way to hit back - and America's space industry is its target.
Sweden has not actively taken part in a war since 1814 - breaking even Switzerland's record for peace. One peace and conflict expert has told The Local that Swedes learned the hard way to take the non-confrontational stance.

Following the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear power plant meltdown, biological samples were obtained only after extensive delays, limiting the information that could be gained about the impacts of that historic disaster. Determined not to repeat the shortcomings of the Chernobyl studies, scientists began gathering biological information only a few months after the disastrous meltdown of the Fukushima Daiichi power plant in Japan in 2011.
SAN FRANCISCO—Clouds can carry millions of pounds of water, but that doesn’t mean rain and snow just happen. Hundreds of thousands of water vapor molecules need to freeze together as ice before they are heavy enough to fall to the ground. But, the water molecules need a bit of dust or other microscopic matter to latch onto in order to get started, and some of the best bits for forming ice are pieces of once-living cells. Scientists now believe a lot of the organic matter in clouds is released into the air by breaking waves in the ocean.
Water may appear to be an abundant resource, but in some parts of the world clean water is hard to come by.
Researchers in Wales are using cutting-edge techniques to catalogue species from tiny sections of genetic material. And these DNA 'barcodes' are now being used to catch plant and animal smugglers worldwide
Whether you are a sport fisherman, a conservationist, or simply like to eat good fish, the havoc wreaked by massive dams on river-spawning fish (like salmon) should concern you. Salmon are incredible athletes, able to propel themselves several feet vertically, but they can’t scale concrete walls by themselves. To get them over small dams, fish ladders or lifts are often constructed. Getting past major barriers, like the dams on the Columbia River, requires catching the fish and transporting them upstream — n process that is too expensive to be implemented everywhere it is needed.
Sharks have an undeserved reputation for being bloodthirsty killers that routinely make snacks out of tourists. Although the risk of getting eaten by a shark is extremely small, the same cannot be said for underwater fiber-optic cables that carry data around the world.
Waseda researchers have described the earliest example of a true dolphin in the known fossil record.
An ancient flying reptile with a bizarre, butterflylike head has been unearthed in Brazil.
Farmers in China have unearthed the nearly complete skeleton of a juvenile armored dinosaur that may be one of the largest ankylosaurs. The finding suggests that this group of beasts grew to be big early in their evolutionary history, researchers say.
A site in southwestern France found to be rich in the bones of horses and other large herbivores has provided important insights into the hunting and scavenging habits of Neanderthals.
Mummies are old. No, really: the ancient Egyptians were deliberately mummifying their dead as many as 2000 years earlier than previously thought.
A new study provides fresh insights into the life of early modern humans before they left Africa following a massive comparative study of stone tools.
A grant of £250,000 from The Leverhulme Trust has been awarded to a team of scientists led by the University of Lincoln, UK, to study how a group of insects evolved incredible ultrasonic hearing abilities.
IT WAS a blitzkrieg with no let-up. Earth may have been pounded by massive asteroids for a billion years longer than we thought, with the impacts only stopping about 3 billion years ago. If that is true, early life had to endure a bombardment that periodically melted Earth's surface.
