Summary

In science news around the world, the U.S. Geological Survey's new earthquake hazards map finds new danger zones in the central United States due to oil- and gas-related wastewater injection; invasive lionfish in the Caribbean have spread to Brazil's coral reefs; a replica of the 36,000-year-old Chauvet ave paintings opens to viewers in a nearby village in France; U.S. political parties continue to wrangle over a controversial bill to reshape U.S. science policy; and more. Also, NASA's MESSENGER spacecraft has reached the end of its mission and is poised to crash into the planet. And the final results from a clinical trial of the first malaria vaccine are in—and they are as lackluster as preliminary results suggested they would be.
