China's Aperture Spherical Radio Telescope (FAST) is the largest and last remaining giant, single-dish telescope after Arecibo's collapse. As China's moon mission advances, experts say the via its resolution and sensitivity, the FAST telescope will help produce critical research over the next decades. After tragedy struck the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico on Wednesday, the scientific community mourned the loss of an astronomical landmark. There is now only one last remaining giant, single-dish, radio telescope in the world: China's 500-meter Aperture Spherical Radio Telescope (FAST). Before and after shots of the Arecibo telescope.

A mother and son were stopped from boarding a flight in Baltimore, Maryland over the Thanksgiving holiday after authorities learned that the child had tested positive for the coronavirus. The Wicomico County Health Department said it had information that the mother and son were traveling to Puerto Rico and they could not be reached. "We immediately got the information for the mother and child and relayed that to the Maryland Transportation Authority police to begin to find the mother and child," Nelson said. Within 15 minutes, state police were able to obtain a legal isolation and quarantine order so that officers could stop the family from boarding the plane and have them return home. He said that they don't believe the mother knew that her son had tested positive for the coronavirus.

WASHINGTON—The Supreme Court on Wednesday weighed whether its decision earlier this year requiring juries to be unanimous to convict someone of a crime should be applied retroactively. If a majority of the justices say yes, hundreds or thousands of convictions could be overturned. In Louisiana, Oregon and Puerto Rico, criminal defendants could be convicted even if the jury wasn’t unanimous, until the Supreme Court ruled the practice unconstitutional in April. Justice Brett Kavanaugh spoke of the court system’s prejudices against African-Americans. Justice Stephen Breyer worried about forcing authorities to retry or release hundreds of inmates; Justice Neil Gorsuch, who wrote April’s plurality opinion, suggested that concern was irrelevant.

On the same day that China collected lunar rocks in a groundbreaking space mission, a critical US telescope at the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico collapsed. On Tuesday, the United States and China experienced vastly different events in the world of space exploration and observation. The Arecibo Observatory, a colossal telescope located in Puerto Rico, collapsed after deteriorating sharply since August. US astronauts in NASA's Apollo program last retrieved over 800 pounds of lunar samples between 1969 and 1972. According to a 2019 report from Fortune, while the US still spends the most on space exploration, China's spending has increased 349% over 15 years.

Slideshow ( 4 images )(Reuters) - The massive telescope at Puerto Rico’s Arecibo Observatory that had been deteriorating since August collapsed on Tuesday, officials said, after 57 years of astronomical discoveries. The radio telescope’s 900-ton instrument platform, suspended by cables 450 feet (137 meters) above a 1,000-foot-wide (305 meters) bowl-shaped reflector dish, fell on Tuesday morning, the U.S. National Science Foundation said. Two cables supporting the reflector dish had broken since August, causing damage and forcing officials to close the observatory. The NSF, which helped manage the telescope, said in November that efforts to repair the structure would be too dangerous and therefore it would have to be demolished. “As we move forward, we will be looking for ways to assist the scientific community and maintain our strong relationship with the people of Puerto Rico.”

Slideshow ( 4 images )(Reuters) - A massive radio telescope at Puerto Rico’s Arecibo Observatory - one of the world’s largest - collapsed on Tuesday after sustaining severe damage since August, officials said, following 57 years of astronomical discoveries. It also gained fame after pivotal scenes in the 1995 James Bond film “GoldenEye” starring Pierce Brosnan were shot there. The observatory also includes other scientific assets such as a 40-foot (12-meter) telescope used for radio astronomy research and a facility used to study the Earth’s upper atmosphere and ionosphere. The observatory’s learning center, located next to the telescope, sustained significant damage from falling cables, the NSF said. “We are saddened by this situation but thankful that no one was hurt,” NSF Director Sethuraman Panchanathan said in a statement.

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico—A huge, already damaged radio telescope in Puerto Rico that has played a key role in astronomical discoveries for more than half a century completely collapsed on Tuesday. The collapse stunned many scientists who had relied on what was until recently the largest radio telescope in the world. “It's a huge loss,” said Carmen Pantoja, an astronomer and professor at the University of Puerto Rico who used the telescope for her doctorate. The telescope was built in the 1960s with money from the Defense Department amid a push to develop anti-ballistic missile defenses. “I am one of those students who visited it when young and got inspired,” said Abel Méndez, a physics and astrobiology professor at the University of Puerto Rico at Arecibo who has used the telescope for research.

REUTERS/Lindsey WassonPlasma treatment shows no benefit in severe COVID-19Blood plasma from COVID-19 survivors was of little benefit to patients with severe COVID-19 pneumonia, researchers in Argentina reported on Tuesday in The New England Journal of Medicine. Researchers randomly assigned 333 hospitalized patients with severe COVID-19 pneumonia to receive convalescent plasma or a placebo. Mortality rates were nearly the same: 11% in the convalescent plasma group and 11.4% in the placebo group, a difference not deemed statistically significant. Three of the COVID-19 patients had testis damage that would impair their ability to produce sperm. A Chinese research team made similar observations earlier this year and also found that some COVID-19 patients' immune systems "attacked" the testes, causing severe inflammation, or orchitis.

Thanksgiving Lessons in Gratitude From My Grandmother

My mother said that Oma loved Thanksgiving because she was thankful for her life here, even if she never felt fully American. Many religious celebrations involve particular foods, but nationalistic celebrations rarely are so culinarily uniform. “Me and the people I study have never cooked a huge bird like that in any form, ever,” he said. The reason they’re taking the risk of making this big, foreign bird is for their children, Ray added. They knew the children would be hearing about turkey at school, and they wanted their kids to be able to fit in with their new peers.
