Frigid Farming Antarctic Greenhouse Yields First Crop

Scientists at Germany’s Neumayer Station III, in Antarctica, have harvested their first crop of vegetables grown without soil, daylight or pesticides as part of a project designed to help astronauts cultivate fresh food on other planets. They picked about eight pounds of salad greens, 18 cucumbers and 70 radishes grown inside a high-tech greenhouse as outside temperatures dropped to minus 4 degrees Fahrenheit. NASA has successfully grown greens on the International Space Station, but the Antarctic project aims to produce a wider range of vegetables that might one day be grown on the moon or on Mars.

Eco Jets Electric Planes on Horizon

European airline EasyJet aims to begin service with electric-powered airplanes within the next decade by collaborating with aviation startup Wright Electric. The company wants to build vehicles with room for 120 and 220 passengers and a range of 335 miles. Not only is battery performance steadily improving, but methods are surfacing to improve the performance of electric motors and squeeze more range out of existing technology.

Scouts Updated Name Change Embraces Guys and Gals

The Boy Scouts of America’s flagship program has been known simply as the Boy Scouts for more than a century, but with girls soon entering the ranks, the group says that iconic name will change. A new name, Scouts BSA, will take effect in February. Mike Surbaugh, chief executive of the Scouts, says, “We wanted to land on something that evokes the past, but also conveys the inclusive nature of the program going forward. We’re trying to find the right way to say we’re here for both young men and young women.”

Not Yet Extinct

New Species Discovered We know a lot about the Earth and its creatures, but never everything. The State University of New York’s College of Environmental Science and Forestry, in Syracuse, has compiled a list of the top 10 new species discovered in 2018, which includes a rare great ape, hitchhiking beetle, omnivorous marsupial lion thought-to-be- extinct and other species that are critically endangered. Quentin Wheeler, college

president and founding director of the International Institute for Species Exploration, says, “As humans alter habitats and contribute to global climate change, species are going extinct at a faster rate than we can name them. They can teach us so much about the intricacies of ecosystems and the details of evolutionary history.”
