Southwest America should Consider Current Drought as Normal, Study suggests

A new study published Thursday has warned that the American Southwest should be prepared for more frequent droughts as a series of storm patterns linked to precipitation has been found becoming increasingly rare.

NASA adjusts Juno spacecraft’s course to Jupiter

NASA scientists recently made adjustments to the course of Juno spacecraft to put it on the right track for its planned arrival at Jupiter on 4th of July this year.

The American space agency performed first of the two “engine burns” by firing Juno’s thrusters, putting it on track to allow it to arrive at the solar system’s largest planet in next five months. The engine burn consumed 1.3 pounds (0.6 kilograms) of the spacecraft’s fuel, and changed its speed by 0.7 mph (1.1 km/h).
