FAA faces dilemma over 737 MAX wiring flaw that Boeing missed
During the original design and certification of Boeings 737 MAX, company engineers didnt notice that the electrical wiring doesnt meet federal aviation regulations for safe wire separation. And the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) failed to detect Boeings miss. The wiring vulnerability creates the theoretical potential for an ...
Near-Earth Asteroid Sets Off Alert, Turns Out to Be Two Asteroids Hanging Out Together
An asteroid that whizzed within 3 million miles of Earth last week turned out to be two objects in a binary system, according to new observations. The automated Asteroid Terrestrial-impact Last Alert System (ATLAS) on Mauna Loa in Hawaii discovered 2020 BX12 on January 27. It immediately determined that the asteroid was a potentially hazardous one.

Solar wind samples suggest new physics of massive solar ejections
A new study led by the University of Hawai'i (UH) at Mnoa has helped refine understanding of the amount of hydrogen, helium and other elements present in violent outbursts from the Sun, and other types of solar "wind," a stream of ionized atoms ejected from the Sun. Coronal mass ejections (CME) are giant plasma bursts that erupt from the sun ...
