Earlier this month, our atmosphere crossed an important - and potentially dangerous - milestone. Here's some context provided by some of NASA's climate scientists.
The sun emitted a mid-level solar flare on the morning of May 22, 2013. The flare peaked at 9:38 a.m. EDT and was classified as an M7. M-class flares are the weakest flares that can still cause some space weather effects near Earth. In the past, they have caused brief radio blackouts at the poles. read more

Good news, guys. There'll be pizza on Mars.
Toyota has been rather slow to adopt lithium-ion technology compared to some other automakers, but it seems like they want to catch up.
NASA won't be printing out pizzas on Mars anytime soon, but the space agency is planning to pay out $125,000 to study the use of 3-D printing technology for food preparation in space. "We will be building the components for a prototype" over the grant's six-month period, David Ir …
