Summary

In science news around the world, NASA's New Horizons spacecraft spies nitrogen ice flows on Pluto as well as a ring of haze around the dwarf planet, the first-ever malaria vaccine clears the first hurdle along a complicated path to approval, the Kepler satellite spies the most Earth-like exoplanet yet, a new technique offers a way to spot hidden HIV in the body's tissues, South Korea declares the Middle East respiratory syndrome outbreak in the country over after 23 days of no new cases, and more. Also, one of Spain's star mathematicians is removed as the head of a national research institute over accusations that the center mismanaged public funds. And Science interviews music technologist Gil Weinberg, who has pioneered artificially intelligent robots that can play music and has also created a robotic drumming prosthesis for a drummer who lost an arm.
