A deadly parasite has been killing off thousands of fishes in the Yellowstone River in Montana, US.
Along with closing the river, the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks have banned any water-based recreation and ordered the closure of the Park. This includes the Yellowstone National Park's northern boundary at Gardiner up to the Highway 212 bridge in Laurel.

Did we use to have fins before we had fingers? Animals including humans may have evolved from fish.
Scientists from the University of Chicago found that a gene-edited mutant fish revealed how fish fins evolved to the fingers we have today. This may be how land animals formed and grew their limbs and digits to adapt to land.
Accidental Discovery of Fin Rays Actually Related to Fingers and Toes A new study published in the journal Nature revealed that fin rays are actually related to human fingers and toes. The New York Times report that the accidental discovery will give answers as to how our ancestors moved from water to land and how our fingers and toes came to be today. more >>
The Kilauea volcano is apparently putting on a spectacular show for curious tourists as it continues pouring its lava to the sea in a display of fire-meets-water.
This is reportedly the first time in three years that the Kilauea volcano has dripped to the Pacific Ocean. Thousands of curious tourists and visitors have gone to Volcanoes National Park in Hawaii to witness the phenomenon. The place might be extending its land mass as the cooled lava inevitably turns to land in the future.

Popular culture might depict black holes as these behemoth, whirlpool-like galaxy sinks where the gravitational pull is so massive that nothing, not even light, can escape beyond the event horizon (anybody who watched Interstellar, of course, enjoyed the privilege of being slightly more knowledgeable about them than the other guy).
But long ago, prominent physicians Stephen Hawking and Jacob Bernstein theorized that black holes weren't actually black. Instead, they emitted energy, more commonly known as the Hawking radiation, that caused them to shrink and eventually, disappear. But while the theory greatly shook the scientific field, it has never been proven - well, until now.
After seven years, Jeff Steinhauer of the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology simulated an analogue black hole through Bose-Einstein condensates (BEC, or supercooled state of matter) in his laboratory that seemed to emit the "Hawking radiation." more >>
Answers in Genesis President Ken Ham is blasting the Theory of Evolution as a "religion of death."
"Evolution is a supposed process involving death, death and more death — death is a necessary part — death for everyone — it's a religion of death," the outspoken Young-Earth Creationist said in comments posted on Twitter Tuesday morning.
In a couple of additional comments, Ham contrasted the death aspect of evolution with the life aspect of Christianity and Jesus Christ's resurrection. more >>
