Summary

In science news around the world, debris that may be from the missing Malaysia Airlines flight 370 is found on the island of Réunion in the Indian Ocean, a controversial study on genetically engineered golden rice is retracted, the United States releases its Clean Power Plan to cut emissions from power plants, South Korea is not officially MERS-free yet, and more. Also, Science talks with David Macdonald, who led the wildlife conservation project of which Cecil the lion—allegedly killed by a trophy hunter last week—was a part. And scientists have developed a remote-controlled "hexacopter" that can noninvasively collect breath samples from whale spouts and assess the animals' health.
