Summary

In science news around the world, fracking gets a boost in the United Kingdom, genetic analyses reveal that a gray wolf seen at the north rim of the Grand Canyon in 2014 and hailed as a sign of the success of conservation efforts was shot by a hunter later that year, Japan's RIKEN laboratories announce punishments for staff embroiled in a stem cell scandal, a gap in weather satellite coverage looms for the United States, and a Brazil-based researcher sues a journal over potential retractions of his papers. Also, the movie Interstellar inspires new insights into black holes. And the long fluttering tails of luna moth wings confuse hungry bats.
