Previous simulations suggested that astronauts on the surface would be safe during a full moon while it resides within the magnetosphere.

A single protein may determine the size of scars, scientists say. Larger scars heighten the risk of future death from heart failure.
The contest invites student teams to identify a problem, dream up a nanotech-enabled solution and pitch their products to experts.
The innovative device turns finger movements into electrical signals and ultimately into spoken words through a smartphone app.
Research brief: The advance could accelerate large-scale testing and diagnosis of people with genetic and metabolic disorders.
The film collects chemical signals from sweat and converts them into electrical ones that can be processed and displayed on a watch.
Researchers will focus on an immunotherapy known as CAR T, which uses genetically modified stem cells to target and destroy the virus.
In recent years the department has been trying to make labs more engaging; safer-at-home orders demonstrated the benefits of letting students design their own experiments.
Margaret Kivelson has been recognized by the Royal Society, Harvard University and University of Leicester.
Research brief: Findings from a UCLA study indicate some men may not require the intensive treatment they have traditionally received.
Johnson, whose research focuses on understanding mechanisms of gene regulation, will take the helm on Sept. 1.
The design could also be altered to detect other infectious diseases and airborne viral threats by continuously monitoring the air of indoor environments.
The award from the National Cancer Institute will fund a series of collaborative research projects over five years at UCLA.
The blood cells, part of the body's first line of defense against infection, have been notoriously difficult to genetically engineer.
A study in zebrafish identified how air pollutants contribute to the buildup of toxic proteins associated with the disease.
The program, called SuEIR, takes into account the number of cases categorized as susceptible, unreported, exposed, infectious and recovered.
The findings are critical for researchers aiming to develop muscle stem cells in the lab that can be used to combat disease.
The drug’s legalization and decriminalization have made detection especially important for preventing impaired driving, the authors say.
By repurposing drugs originally intended for other uses, scientists are pushing forward the fight against cancer.
The team proposed a redesign of certain elements of a Los Angeles elementary school to improve its environmental sustainability.
Images of C/2019 Y4 breaking into more than two dozen fragments in recent days were captured by the Hubble Space Telescope.
“We hope our method could be used in the future to prepare treatments that can be performed at the patient’s bedside,” said UCLA’s Paul Weiss.
In a study using mice with bone defects in their skulls, the treatment reduced the size of the defects by an average of 50%.
The first installment features a discussion with professors Ren Sun, Dr. Otto Yang, Daniel Kamei and Eran Halperin.
The researchers’ approach could also eventually be used as a way to monitor the activity of volcanoes.
