  4. How Low is Too Low? Study Highlights Serious Risks for Intensive Blood Pressure ControlRead the original story

    Sep 1, 2018 |

    PASADENA, Calif: Kaiser Permanente research published today in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine found if patients with hypertension taking prescribed medications experience unusually low blood pressures - systolic blood pressure under 110mmHg - they are twice as likely to experience a fall or faint as patients whose treated blood pressure remains 110mmHg and above. This research is timely because late last year the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology lowered its definition of blood pressure from a systolic blood pressure of at least 140 to a systolic of at least 130, said the study's lead author John J. Sim, MD, a nephrologist with the Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center.

  9. NASA's Opportunity rover halted over Martian dust stormRead the original story w/Photo

    Jun 12, 2018 |

    Washington, June 12 : NASA's Opportunity rover's science operations have been temporarily suspended as it waits out a growing dust storm on Mars, the US space agency said in a statement. First detected by NASA on June 1, the storm ballooned to more than 18 million and included the Opportunity's current location at Perseverance Valley in the Red Planet by June 8. The swirling dust has raised the atmospheric opacity, or "tau", -- the veil of dust blowing around, which can blot out sunlight -- in the valley in the past few days.


  10. NASA finds curious new clues to life on MarsRead the original story w/Photo

    Jun 8, 2018 |

    Washington, June 8 : NASA's Curiosity rover has discovered "tough" organic molecules in three-billion-year-old sedimentary rocks near the surface of Mars -- a finding that suggests the planet could have supported ancient life. It has also found seasonal variations in the levels of methane in the atmosphere, a discovery that has relation to the search for current life on the Red Planet.

    Jun 1, 2018 |

    Washington, June 1 : NASA's Dawn spacecraft is set to reach in early June its new, final orbit which will be less than 50 kilometres above the surface of the inner solar system's only dwarf planet -- 10 times closer than the spacecraft has ever been. Soon after, it will begin collecting images and other science data, and that very low orbit will also garner some of Dawn's closest images yet, NASA said on Thursday.
