Cousteau's grandson surfaces after record underwater stay

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 07/02/2014 - 23:21
By Zachary Fagenson MIAMI (Reuters) - Fabien Cousteau, grandson of famed French oceanographer Jacques Cousteau, emerged from the turquoise waters off the Florida Keys on Wednesday morning, marking the end of a record-breaking, 31-day stay in an underwater habitat with a team of scientists and documentary filmmakers. The younger Cousteau, 46, along with two "aquanauts," took the 60-foot (18-meter) dive to Aquarius, a 43-foot-long (18-meter-long) laboratory resting off of Key Largo, on June 1 following years of preparation and delay. "After 31 days under water, [Fabien Cousteau] and his crew are about to become land dwellers again," the Mission 31 team announced on Twitter shortly after 9 a.m. EDT (1300 GMT) While Cousteau's goal was to attract more support for ocean conservation, teams of scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Northeastern University rotated through the laboratory studying the impact of changing seas on underwater life. "One night the air conditioning stopped working and it got to 95 degrees (35 C) and 95 percent humidity," said Andrew Shantz, a Ph.D. candidate in marine eco-science at Florida International University, who spent 17 days in the lab in the beginning of June.

Panel endorses some NSA Internet monitoring

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 07/02/2014 - 23:09

FILE - This Thursday, June 6, 2013, file photo, shows a sign outside the National Security Administration (NSA) campus in Fort Meade, Md. The latest study of the the bipartisan Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board takes the opposite view of a different set of National Security Agency surveillance programs revealed last year by former NSA systems administrator Edward Snowden. The board which was to vote on the report on Wednesday, July 2, 2014, found that the NSA's collection of Internet data within the United States passes constitutional muster and employs "reasonable" safeguards designed to protect the rights of Americans. Last January, the first time the board dissected an NSA surveillance program, it found fundamental flaws. (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky, File)WASHINGTON (AP) — A bipartisan Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board has unanimously adopted a report that endorses some of the National Security Agency's Internet surveillance programs.
