In 2014, Smith created a pirate ship, followed be a skeleton train in 2015 and a giant dragon prop complete with Viking ship in 2016.

Hospital ship empty as ill Puerto Ricans suffer

Sammy Rolon is living in a makeshift clinic set up at a school. He has cerebral palsy and epilepsy and is bedridden. He's waiting for surgery that was scheduled before Hurricane Maria smashed into Puerto Rico. Now, he can't even get the oxygen he needs. There is help available for the 18-year-old — right offshore. A floating state-of-the-art hospital, the USNS Comfort, could provide critical care, his doctor says.

The Senate could OK the destruction of Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

The Senate could OK the destruction of Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

For the 24 years I was privileged to serve in the U.S. Senate, I opposed oil development in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska. The 19 million acres in the Arctic Refuge are some of the world’s wildest, most unspoiled lands and are a part of America’s great national heritage. The Arctic Refuge is one of the places on Earth where we come closest to glimpsing the creative work of God. It should inspire our awe and careful stewardship. The native Alaskan Gwich’in people refer to the Refuge’s 1.4 million acre coastal plain as “The Sacred Place Where Life Begins.”

Scientists Have Designed a Crystalline Type of Aluminium That’s Insanely Light

Scientists Have Designed a Crystalline Type of Aluminium That's Insanely Light

Aluminium is already highly prized. It's conductive, has a low melting point, is very strong when alloyed, is impervious to rust and, above all, it's extremely light. But what if you could get it lighter – so light, in fact, that it could float on water even when not made into the shape of a foil boat? According to a model created by researchers at Utah State University and Southern Federal University in Rostov-on Don, Russia, such a thing is actually possible. A team used computational design to conceive a form of crystalline aluminium with extremely low density.
