- For those of us fascinated with aviation, here’s some exiting news on the development of a new aircraft that would be a successor to the SR-71 Blackbird.

- Antarctica is a great place to visit if you’re searching for meteorites. Recently, a meteorite was found that weighed an astounding 7.6 kilograms (16.7 pounds).
- The global climate crisis will have significant effects on many cultures that are dwindling in populations and the number of people who speak their languages.
- Over 600 square miles. This is no small ice cube. “Iceberg roughly the size of London breaks off in Antarctica.”
- Here is the latest update on the USA Drought Monitor. Recent precipitation has brought some improvements even to California in the wake of several significant storm systems. East of the Mississippi river, conditions have improved significantly while parts of the central and southern plains still have extreme or exceptional drought conditions.
