The Space Launch System (SLS) and Orion spacecraft were set to take off on a test journey to the moon called Artemis I. However, engine problems delayed the launch. Another effort may be made on September 2 to launch again, but this will depend on the results of ongoing testing.
One of the advantages animals have over humans is the ability to detect the magnetic field of the earth. Humans are unable to do this. Some humans can detect the magnetic field of the earth, according to a study that indicates a neurological trait known as magnetoreceptors is responsible for the ability of some humans to detect the magnetic field.
A novel plastic that decomposes after use produced by University of Tokyo researchers is loaded with enzymes that cause it to degrade in water spontaneously. Plastic contamination in the water has now become a global environmental problem. This study will aid in the reduction of plastic pollution in the ocean.
On Monday, NASA will launch the Artemis I mission, which will involve sending three replica astronauts on a 40-day journey around the moon and there are four artemis launch suspense factors to watch out for. How may we expect to benefit from their journey? The launch of the world's most powerful rocket is only the beginning.

This is because on Monday, NASA did a review called the Flight Readiness Review.
The discovery of a fly with zombie fungus wins a science photo contest. This zombie fungus that can control the mind of an insect may not be something to cheer about, but a picture of it killing an insect is getting cheers from scientists. The photo is so beautiful that it won the second BMC Ecology and Evolution Image Competition.
The zoonotic virus monkeypox may be transmitted to humans by some species of monkeys and apes. The infection then spreads from one person to another. Doctors recently revealed the first human instance of spreading the virus to a beloved dog at Paris's Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital.
Forever chemicals found in everyday objects such as nonstick cookware have long been connected to major health problems because of their toxicity and strong resistance to breakdown as waste products.

The increasing usage of air conditioners, which poses a threat to the environment due to their high energy consumption and the use of refrigerants with a high warming potential, is being driven by the current extreme heat waves, the intensity and frequency of which are anticipated to increase in the future. A new study found that using propane as a refrigerant could cut down on the rise in global temperature caused by space cooling.
