Floods Ravage Utah And Southwest

Floods Ravage Utah And Southwest A devastating storm ripped through the southwest causing flash floods from Los Angeles to Utah. Particularly hard hit was the Utah-Arizona border town of Hildale, the home base of Warren Jeffs’ polygamous sect the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or FLDS.  Reports confirm that 13 were killed in the flash flooding that, according to eye witness Chris Wyler, only seemed to last, “like a half hour, [or] 45 minutes.”  According to Utah officials in the city of Hildale and the Washington County Emergency Services, among the dead are at least 3 women and 6 children, ranging in...

NASA: Ocean Possibly Discovered Inside Saturn Moon Enceladus

NASA: Ocean Possibly Discovered Inside Saturn Moon Enceladus In a press release this Tuesday, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory discusses the high likelihood that there might be an ancient ocean lurking inside of Saturn’s Moon Enceladus. The finding, they said, “implies the fine spray of water vapor, icy particles and simple organic molecules Cassini has observed coming from fractures near the moon’s south pole is being fed by this vast liquid water reservoir.” What tipped off researchers to this notion was the observation that Enceladus has a very slight wobble. By their estimates, this would not be the kind of behavior observed...

Man Eaters of the Himalayas

Man Eaters of the Himalayas Would you expect a fuzzy kitty to have a body count greater than the likes of Freddy, Jason and Leatherface combined? The infamous “Panar Leopard” is one of several big cats throughout history who made bloody names for themselves by picking off Hindu pilgrims traveling the winding, isolated roads of the Himalayas. During attacks, the leopards lunge for the throat or nape of the neck, aiming to sever as many veins as possible. Hominid skeletons found in Africa and dating back to millions of years ago are said to show puncture marks from leopard teeth....

Living Life the Victorian Way Is history a lot like the game of telephone in which stories are repeated over and over again until the final retelling bears little resemblance to the truth? This is what Sarah A. Chrisman and her husband Gabriel believe. In 2010, they made a life-changing decision. Frustrated with the complexities of daily life and fascinated by the secrets of the past, the Chrismans, both of whom are history buffs, chose to time travel in a way, transporting their lifestyle back to the late Victorian era of the 1880s and 1890s.

Mars Colonization: NASA’s New Take

A New Take On Colonizing Mars And Other Planets A new NASA-sponsored competition hopes to unlock the secrets of space colonization through user-submitted design proposals. Called the 3D-Printed Habitat Challenge, NASA hopes that the competition will help to, “develop the fundamental technologies necessary to manufacture an off-world habitat using mission recycled materials and/or local indigenous materials.” NASA continues, “The vision is that autonomous habitat manufacturing machines will someday be deployed to the Moon or Mars to construct shelters for human habitation;” a lot of fancy speech for a simple idea: using 3D-Printers to build structures using materials which already exist on the...
