Iran accuses U.S. of Using Weather Weapons

The head of Iran’s cultural heritage and tourism organization believes that in addition to economic sanctions, the West is launching another kind of ‘soft war’ on the Islamic republic. Speaking at a ceremony to introduce the nation’s new meteorological department chief, Hassan Mousavi said that he was “suspicious about the drought in the southern part of the country”. He went on to accuse the West as using ‘technology’ to influence the nation’s climate, saying sand storms, droughts, and other extreme weather were the result of an unspecified method of war.

Hitchhiking robot’s cross-country trip in US ends in Philly

A hitchhiking robot that captured the hearts of fans worldwide met its demise in the U.S. The Canadian researchers who created hitchBOT as a social experiment said someone in Philadelphia damaged the robot beyond repair early Saturday, ending its first American tour after about two weeks. “Sadly, sadly it’s come to an end,” said Frauke Zeller, one of its co-creators. The kid-size robot set out to travel cross-country after successfully hitchhiking across Canada in 26 days last year and parts of Europe. It’s immobile on its own, relying on the kindness of strangers. Those who picked it up often passed...

Stealth Bomber in Denver Sky

  KUSA in Denver received many reports of a stealth Bomber flighing in the Denver Skies just prior to the MLS All Star Game.  The aircraft appeared right after the national anthem. KUSA – We got lots of calls and emails from people who saw a different-looking aircraft in the sky Wednesday night. Many of the viewers were in the north metro area – which makes sense, because a stealth bomber flew over Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City ahead of the MLS All-Star game — and that’s the aircraft they saw (which means it wasn’t so stealth …)...

NASA’s Golden Record made for alien ears now on SoundCloud

The sounds of Earth. We Earthlings listen to them all the time. A baby cries. A bus rolls by. The wind keens and rain falls. These sounds and many more are included on NASA’s Golden Record, a compendium of the sounds of our planet that traveled out into space with the twin Voyager 1 and 2 missions in 1977. The phonograph disk itself was 12 inches and made from copper plated in gold. Previously, the tracks on the album were available as individual clips, but NASA this week released them as a whole recording available to listen to on streaming...

Swarms of Grasshoppers Show Up On Radar In Texas!

Weather radar has picked up thousands of insects flying over Knox County, Texas, according to the National Weather Service of Norman, Oklahoma. Rangers at Copper Breaks State Park in Quanah, Texas confirmed that the radar is picking up a large swarm of both grasshoppers and beetles. It is difficult to correlate a specific amount of insects to what the radar is seeing because it depends on the size and proximity of the insects as they fly, says Forrest Mitchell, Observations Program Leader at the National Weather Service of Norman, Oklahoma. They are swarming from the ground up to 2,500 feet, covering...
