An experimental malaria vaccine protected healthy adults from infection for more than a year in a clinical trial in US, an advance that may help control and ultimately eradicate the deadly disease.
Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun and due to its proximity it isn't easily seen except during twilight. For every two orbits of the Sun, Mercury completes three rotations about its axis and up until 1965 it was thought that the same side of Mercury constantly faced the Sun.
It happens only a little more than once a decade and the next chance to see it is Monday, May 9, 2016. Throughout the US, sky watchers can watch Mercury pass between Earth and the sun in a rare astronomical event known as a planetary transit. Three NASA satellites will be providing images of the transit and one of them will have a near-live feed.
The Astronomical New Moon (conjunction) of the new Hijri month of Shaaban will occur on Friday the 6th of May 2016 at 19:29 UTC.
The Japanese X-ray telescope Hitomi has been declared lost after it disintegrated in orbit, torn apart when spinning out of control. The cause is still under investigation but early analysis points to bad data in a software package pushed shortly after an instrument probe was extended from the rear of the satellite.
The fallout from a deadly Brazilian dam collapse is far from over for two of the world's biggest miners.

Global malaria eradication is possible within a generation, but only with renewed focus, new tools and sufficient financial support, according to a paper published in The Lancet by the Global Health Group’s (GHG) Malaria Elimination Initiative (MEI) at UC San Francisco.
Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) University researchers have trialled a quantum processor capable of routing quantum information from different locations in a critical breakthrough for quantum computing.
To protect ourselves from asteroids and comets that could very easily smash into Earth, researchers have to first know where those objects are in our Solar System, which is exactly what NASA has been doing with its Near-Earth Object Wide-field Survey Explorer (NEOWISE) spacecraft. Now, after two years of study, we, the public, finally get a chance to take a peek at what it found.
Using satellite data on how water moves around Earth, NASA scientists have solved two mysteries about wobbles in the planet’s rotation — one new and one more than a century old. The research may help improve our knowledge of past and future climate.
