When an air leak brewed up potential trouble for the International Space Station, Russian crew members came up with an unconventional solution.
Frustrated by a small drop in the air pressure that had persisted since August, for which the cause could not be found, Anatoly Ivanishin raided the galley for a solution.

Underwater coral skyscraper taller than the Empire State Building found in Great Barrier Reef – Telegraph.co.uk
The reef was explored by underwater robot SuBastian, which livestreamed its discoveries
An underwater coral skyscraper taller than the Empire State Building has been discovered in the Great Barrier Reef.
Scientists from Australia’s James Cook University said they were “surprised and elated” to find the 1,640ft structure, the first detached coral reef to be discovered in 120 years.

Water exists on the moon, scientists confirm – The Guardian
Proof of significant amounts of H2O has implications for future lunar missions
Scientists have gathered some of the most compelling evidence yet for the existence of water on the moon and it may be relatively accessible. The discovery has implications for future missions to the moon and deeper space exploration.
With no significant atmosphere insulating it from the suns rays, it had been assumed that the moons surface was dry until the 1990s, when orbiting spacecraft found indications of ice in large and inaccessible craters near the moons poles.
Then in 2009, imaging spectrometers…
