In approaching the world cup many question the safety of going to Brazil. Scientist at Harvard conducted a study that found 3 big clusters of disease that emerge in people who visit Brazil. The 3rd most common disease was feverish blights such as malaria. The second was traveler’s diarya. And the unexpected most common illness was skin worms. This makes sense when you consider many tourists who visit Brazil go to the coast, and the leading skin worm was cutaneous larva margins, hookworms that live on the beaches and can penetrate a bare skin. However for the world cup the biggest fear is yellow fever or malaria as 4 of the 12 stadiums are located in places where these diseases are frequently found.
The reason they believe in science when it helps them (medicine, technology) and they don’t believe in climate change is because first, medicine helps them and when they need help they believe more because they want to get better. But when the science does not help them they don’t believe in so they say science is always wrong god is right and everything is going to turn out fine. Secondly, it hasn’t got personal to them but say if a medicine or some sort of science saved one of there relatives or family members they believe in it. But when its not personal to them yet they think its going to be fine but eventually with there job if one of their relatives or family looses their job and can not put food on the table for their family then eventually their going to have to believe in science. In conclusion, I think everyone should learn about this because science shows that we are causing global warming and we need to stop it.
The Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) has just figured out how to make fuel for ships and planes. The (NRL) has made a remote control airplane that flys on this fuel. They make the fuel by extracting carbon dioxide (CO2) and produce hydrogen gas (H2) from seawater, subsequently catalytically converting the CO2 and H2 into fuel by a gas-to-liquids process. This is a big game changer for the earth and world. It is a renewable source of gas and it will be taking out the CO2 out of the water and using it so it will being using up the CO2 in the earth. It is another source of gas. this approach could be commercially viable within the next seven to ten years.

"A radiation leak has raised questions about the safety of the United States." On February 14th a radioactive plutonium and americium leaked out of a waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) near Carolsbad, New Mexico. Where thousands of contaminated material was stored by the U.S. nuclear program had stor
Many believe there are thing deep down in the ocean that help solve medical mysteries. So they made something called a Exosuit. It is made out of aluminum that is 2 meters and 240 kilograms. It is a “atmospheric diving system." and it can explore down to 305 meters down without succumbing to the cold and intense pressure, which is 30 times greater than at the surface. So they made this because there are items down there that can get things that are for medicine many people think.
The moon has took many beatings from meteorites and other space stuff. But the last one it took was the hardest impact scientist have ever seen. After a meteorite hit the got the moon in an area known as Mare Nubium basin. Spanish astronomers use a telescope network that scans the moon. The telescope saw a giant flash on the moon that was bigger than ever. They found out that the meteorite was traveling at 61,000 kilometers per hour. The explosion had the force of 15 tons of TNT creating a new crater 40 meters wide.
There is a Organization that is called Mars One. Mars One is planning to send people to mars. They are planning to send 4 people to Mars every 4 years starting 2024. First they are planning to send a unmanned machine that will make special places for people to stay and do science. The First footprint on mars will inspire generations.
