SUSAN DAVIS, HOST: If you go to great lengths to avoid human interaction, you are not alone. A new study published in Science magazine shows that animals are changing their sleep schedules to prevent human contact. Instead of sleeping at night, some animals are switching to a nocturnal lifestyle. Neil Carter is a co-author on the study, which was led by researchers at the University of California at Berkeley. He's also an assistant professor at Boise State University. And he joins us now from KBSX in Boise. Welcome to the program. NEIL CARTER: Thanks. DAVIS: So I have to ask, on behalf of humans, was it something that we did? CARTER: It appears that it is something that we did. It looks like

The Royal Observatory at Greenwich has been pivotal to astronomy and navigation since the beginning of time. Astronomers were forced to abandon their work in the 1950s as London smogs grew so bad that they could no longer see the stars through their telescopes.

The tiny home movement has shown us that you can squeeze a surprising amount of living space into an incredibly small floor plan simply by using clever design and innovative thinking. When building his one-of-a-kind home, owner Kurt Hughes took some obvious design cues from NASA and the Apollo space program. From the outside, the place looks a lot like a lunar lander, the spacecraft that first carried Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin down to the surface of the moon on July 20, 1969, complete with landing struts for a gentle touchdown. All told, the tiny house weighs just 3,000 pounds and is suspended nine feet off the ground.
The island, known as Dingy or Buddo, is one of dozens populated by dogs that line the shore south of the sprawling port megacity.

The event, and others like it around the country, commemorate the riots that erupted in response to a police raid at a New York gay bar called the Stonewall Inn in June 1969. Onlookers and participants in New York noted those origins at Sunday’s event, which was both a celebration of the diversity of LGBT culture and a statement against anti-LGBT policies promoted by President Donald Trump, such as the Republican president’s attempt to ban all transgender people from serving in the military.

Feral cats kill more than one million reptiles every day in Australia, a new study showed Monday, with the staggering slaughter threatening many species. Cats have wiped out entire populations of some animals in Australia since being introduced by Europeans settlers two centuries ago, with efforts to cull or sterilise them so far failing to slow their march. In total, around 650 million lizards and snakes fall victim to feral and pet cats annually, they found.
KODIAK, Alaska (AP) — A commercial spaceflight company is preparing for its third attempt to launch from the Kodiak spaceport. If successful, it would be the first commercial launch from the spaceport at Narrow Cape, the Kodiak Daily Mirror reported Friday. State-owned Alaska Aerospace Corp., which helps facilitate launches, would not name the company, citing a non-disclosure agreement, but said it would try to take off between July 14 and 20. Two launch attempts by the company over the last three months have been postponed. "We've tried twice to get their flight off," Barry King, Alaska Aerospace Corp. director of range operations, said during a board meeting Thursday. "Both times, they've run
