Astronomers Reveal Extinct Extra-Terrestrial Fusion Reactor - SpaceDaily    An international team of astronomers, studying the left-over remnants of stars like our own Sun, have found a remarkable object where the nuclear reactor that once powered it has only just shut down. This star, the hottest known white dwarf, H1504+65, seems to have been stripped of its entire outer regions during its death throes leaving behind the core that formed its power plant. The data revealed that the stellar surface is extremely hot, 200,000 degrees, and is virtually free of hydrogen and helium, something never before observed in any star.
Unfolding Planet Earth, Version Three - SpaceDaily  The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colo., is unveiling a new version of a supercomputer-based system to model Earth's climate and to project global temperature rise in coming decades. CCSM3 shows global temperatures could rise by 2.6 degrees Celsius (4.7 degrees Fahrenheit) in a hypothetical scenario in which atmospheric levels of carbon dioxide are suddenly doubled. That is significantly more than the 2 degree Celsius (3.6 degree Fahrenheit) increase that had been indicated by the preceding version of the model.

Medicines 'killing 10,000 people'   - BBC  More than 10,000 Britons may be dying each year because of bad reactions to medication, a study suggests. Researchers at the University of Liverpool assessed 18,820 people admitted to two hospitals in Merseyside between November 2001 and April 2002. They found that one in 16 had been admitted because of an adverse reaction to drugs such as aspirin. Some 28 died. Writing in the British Medical Journal, they said nationally the number of deaths could top 10,000 a year. The most common reaction to these drugs was internal bleeding in the stomach.
