Scoops of the Day

TS Claudette will cause areas of flash flooding in southeastern Mississippi through the Florida Panhandle through at least mid-day.

A new @SciRobotics  study of human hand augmentation in 36 participants suggests that our brains can readily adapt to an extra thumb, but using the additional appendage may alter the relationship between the #brain  and biological hand. #WeekendReads 

A massive effort to sequence the DNA of Vikings across Europe was published last year—and the results may rewrite popular perceptions. #ScienceMagArchives

Sure, we could theoretically change Earth's orbit. But the strategy of constantly detonating nuclear bombs near Earth’s surface with the goal of vaporizing parts of it to act as rocket exhaust also has several drawbacks.

In the West, the heatwave continues and temperatures are expected to reach record-breaking highs across much of the region. Red Flag Warnings have been issued over parts of the Rockies and the Great Basin to highlight the fire danger associated with the heat and arid soils.

The first 5 years of gravitational-wave astrophysics: A new #ScienceReview  highlights how direct detections of gravitational waves have improved our understanding of black holes and neutron stars. #WeekendReads
