RIP Hauri (water on the moon)

"Carnegie geochemist Erik Hauri, whose work upended our understanding of the Moon’s formation and the importance of water in Earth’s interior, died Wednesday in North Potomac, MD, following a battle with cancer. He was 52."

Doesn't make you a bad person.

He says Trump alone wanted to compete directly with the NFL in the fall, which the other owners and officials saw as unrealistic.
Trump, Reynolds believes, “was angling for a merger with the NFL so he could wind up with an NFL franchise for a song.”
“[Trump’s] personal ambition sank the USFL,” he says.
“I pray he never gets the chance to do to the USA what he did to the USFL.”

It's not certain, but it seems that the baby orca "J50" may have died at sea.

Endangered young killer whale declared dead, but search continues

"The grim news means scientists believe just 74 whales remain of the group found in the Pacific Northwest, which have failed to reproduce successfully in the past three years. The orcas have struggled with pollution, boat noise and, most severely, a dearth of their preferred prey, chinook salmon, because of dams, habitat loss and overfishing."
