SETI Institute A team of researchers in the U.S. and Germany has measured the highest level of ultraviolet radiation ever recorded on the Earth's surface. The extraordinary UV fluxes, observed in the Bolivian Andes only 1,500 miles from the equator, are far above those normally considered to be harmful to both terrestrial and aquatic life. The results are being published in the open-access journal Frontiers in Environmental Science. "These record-setting levels were not measured in...

NASA Images Highlight US Air Quality Improvement
2014-06-27 03:22:56

Kathryn Hansen, NASA Anyone living in a major US city for the past decade may have noticed a change in the air. The change is apparent in new NASA satellite images unveiled this week that demonstrate the reduction of air pollution across the country. After ten years in orbit, the Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) on NASA's Aura satellite has been in orbit sufficiently long to show that people in major US cities are breathing less nitrogen dioxide – a yellow-brown gas that can cause...
