From the Publisher

Philippe has no memory why he piloted a boat in a very empty ocean ahead of a typhoon. He has no memory of the wave lifting his boat high into the air before slamming it onto reef known as Kahuna's Teeth to shatter like a crystal bowl. He remembers little more than his first name. If not for the dog, Ellie, and the hermit who hates people, he would be dead, and that would make his uncle very happy. Very happy, indeed.

From the islands of the South Pacific to America and back again, Philippe has a huge reward for his head and many eager to hand it to Uncle Rousseau. What is buried deep in the boy's memory the man fears so greatly? And who is the man with no name? A hermit? Not likely. Not with the resources at his command that keep the young man alive.

Today's Hurricanes Kill Way Fewer Americans, and NOAA’s Satellites Are the Reason Why

Both vacationers and residents in Galveston, Texas, knew a storm was approaching on September 7, 1900. But there was no evacuation, and most everyone stayed put, not realizing the scale of the coming fury. The next day, surging waters killed 8,000 people. This event remains the most lethal natural disaster in U.S. history. But with dramatically improved forecasting, it’s unlikely to happen again. “You’re not going have a storm sneak up on Galveston,” says James Frank

Six Flags as a Science Lab and Cow Gut Spelunkers: Fantastic Tales From the Field

Peter Oumanski "I still choke up over that motor." Victor Singer, former Structural Engineer for Orbital ATK My first interplanetary rocket motor was a ­solid-fuel ­Star-24. I can still picture it: 24 inches in diameter, almost spherical, with a nozzle sticking out. That nozzle was mine. I designed it. NASA employed the Star-24 on its 1978 Pioneer Venus multiprobe, which studied the planet’s atmosphere. Once the probe reached orbit, the rocket’s job was to slow the Pioneer enough so it would fall toward Venus, gathering data until it burned up. During the week prior to launch, the company left

Precision in Climate Science

The Line: Scientists cannot precisely measure climate change nor the impact of human activity on climate change. The Party: Republican In the past, some Republicans have denied that global warming and climate change are occurring — calling the former a “hoax” and the latter “pseudoscientific.” In recent months, a number of President Donald Trump’s cabinet members have taken a different stance: They acknowledge that the climate is changing and humans have contributed, but they’ve said that scientists can’t measure or don’t understand human impact precisely. But scientists can measure that impac
