Summary

In science news around the world, California wildfires threaten U.S. science facilities, the United Nations calls to ban plastic-dumping in oceans, and a Brexit deal lets EU scientists stay in the United Kingdom—and keeps that country in Horizon 2020 until the end of the program. Also, scientists sue the University of Rochester in New York over its handling of a sexual harassment case and U.S. President Donald Trump announces a plan to send NASA astronauts back to the moon. Plus, the famous hominid skeleton "Little Foot" goes on display, and a new study suggests that equatorial Africa may not have lost as much forest in the 20th century as commonly thought.
