The Ohio Valley may experience a different kind of light show Saturday night.
According to AccuWeather.com, a solar flare that happened about 2 a.m. Thursday morning may create a spectacular display of northern lights Saturday evening. The Ohio Valley also happens to be in the “Good” to “Fair” viewing area according to the website.
States listed in the “Good” viewing area include New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, West Virginia and parts of Pennsylvania, Ohio, [...]
A lightning bolt is one of nature’s most over-the-top phenomena, rarely failing to elicit at least a ping of awe no matter how many times a person has witnessed one. With his iconic kite-and-key experiments in the mid-18th century, Benjamin Franklin showed that lightning is an electrical phenomenon, and since then the general view has been that lightning bolts are big honking sparks no different in kind from the little [...]
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Radiation from Japan’s nuclear disaster is being looked at as one possible cause for what some experts are declaring an “unusual mortality event” after hundreds of ailing sea lion pups washed ashore in Southern California.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has assembled a team that includes biologists, veterinarians and public health officials, among others.
It’s already well known how devastating the March 2011 Fukushima nuclear reactor meltdown was for Japan — dramatic spikes in radiation-related illnesses, an increase in likely cancer deaths over the next several years, and pollution which may never truly be cleaned up. A new study shows what many worldwide have feared — that the devastation from the traveling radiation has in fact sickened infants in other countries, including babies born [...]

Still think that the Fukushima nuclear meltdown of 2011 never affected the United States public? Young children born in the United States West Coast, right in the line of fire for radioactive isotopes, have been found to be 28% more likely to develop congenital hypothyroidism than infants born the year before the incident.
The study followed children born in California, Alaska, Washingto, Hawaii, and Oregon between 1 and 16 weeks [...]
Infants on the West Coast of the United States are showing increased incidents of thyroid abnormalities, which researchers are attributing to radiation released following the March 2011 meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

A gamma ray burst, the most powerful explosion known in the Universe, may have hit the Earth in the 8th Century.
In 2012 researchers found evidence that our planet had been struck by a blast of radiation during the Middle Ages, but there was debate over what kind of cosmic event could have caused this.
Now a study suggests it was the result of two black holes or neutron [...]
Black holes may be the most ironic objects in the Universe. They are objects with gravity so fierce that if you venture too close, literally no force in the Universe can prevent you from falling in. Not even light can escape, which is why we call them what we do.
Yet they also power the brightest objects in the Universe. As matter falls in, it forms a disk just outside the [...]

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will face some push-back during the big Thanksgiving travel week, as part of the Alex-Jones-ordered “Opt Out and Film Week.”
From Nov. 19 through Nov. 26, Jones is encouraging travelers to refuse to go through the radiation-laden body scanners. They should also film the invasive body pat-down that will likely ensue if they decide to opt-out.

Persistently high radioactivity in some fish caught close to the Fukushima nuclear plant has sparked a government investigation into the physiological basis for contamination and why radiation readings in some specimens remain hundreds of times over the official safe limit.
[...] The overall trend has been a decline in detected amounts of radioactive cesium.
However, in August, two greenlings caught 20 kilometers north of the Fukushima [...]

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The controversial full body airport scanners are being removed from LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy International, the Transportation Security Administration announced Sunday.
The Backscatter machines were first used at JFK exactly two years ago amid a flurry of controversy.

Studies have recently shown there is a very exciting virus that seems to cure all different types of cancer in laboratory conditions.
It has no side effects, so could be safely given to humans.
My question is this – why is this virus sitting in a lab instead of being offered to terminal cancer patients who have been ‘sent home to die’?
If there’s no side effects shouldn’t we be giving it to [...]

Three Mile Island Nuclear Plant releases Steam, but no Radiation detected?
Genetic mutations have been found in three generations of butterflies from near Japan’s crippled Fukushima nuclear plant, scientists said Tuesday, raising fears radiation could affect other species.
Around 12 percent of pale grass blue butterflies that were exposed to nuclear fallout as larvae immediately after the tsunami-sparked disaster had abnormalities, including smaller wings and damaged eyes, researchers said.
The insects were mated in a laboratory well outside the fallout zone and 18 [...]
Rep. Dennis Kucinich has introduced a bill that would require cell phones to warn consumers how much radiation is coming from their phones, saying that until science can disprove a link to cancer, the public should be told more information.
His bill, the Cell Phone Right to Know Act, would also demand a study of cell phones and health, looking at a broad array of signals that smart phones now send [...]

According to calculations by Tokyo Electric Power Co., the operator of the Fukushima No. 1 plant, a total of about 10 million becquerels per hour of radioactive cesium was being emitted from the No. 1 to No. 3 reactors as of June.
since February, the level of radiation emitted from the reactors has remained unchanged.
“There is the possibility that the cesium that fell on the reactor buildings was stirred up again,” [...]
