  • Canada election race narrowing to two parties as NDP stumbles

    By Allison Lampert and Randall Palmer MONTREAL/OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canada's tight three-way election race may be turning into a two-party contest.

The NDP, down from first to third place in national polls, appears to have been hurt by its backing of Muslim women who want to wear the face-covering veil, or niqab, during citizenship ceremonies, while its plans to fund a universal day-care proposal have been greeted with skepticism.

  • There May Be Water On Mars But No One Is Allowed To Go Near It

    This week NASA announced it had found hard evidence of flowing water on Mars, but thanks to an agreement signed back in the 1960s, the American space agency can’t go anywhere near it. According to the 1967 Outer Space Treaty, no one is allowed to approach any potential water source on another planet, in case of contamination. As Akshat Rathi explains on Quartz, the treaty “forbids anyone from sending a mission, robot or human, close to a water source in the fear of contaminating it with life from Earth”.
