Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer Repair Spacewalk #3, Dec. 2, 2019

Published

on



Astronauts Andrew Morgan of NASA and Luca Parmitano of the European Space Agency (ESA) will venture outside the International Space Station starting at ~6:50 a.m. EST to continue repairing the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) instrument. This is the third in a series of repair spacewalks – the most complex of this kind since the servicing of the Hubble Space Telescope. AMS is attached to the outside of the space station, where it has been operating since 2011. It is a particle physics experiment working to help us understand dark matter and the origins of the universe.

Kashmere Gardens neighbors blame railroad yard for cancerous contamination

Published

on

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — Residents of Kashmere Gardens in Fifth Ward say they have been dealing with a detrimental problem for years.

“All our neighbors are dead. We have one, two, three, four original people. Everyone else has died off from cancer,” a concerned neighbor Sandra Edwards shared.

Edwards believes her beloved neighborhood has had a cancer problem for years due to the Union Pacific Railroad yard nearby.

In August 2019, a report was released by the Texas Department of State Health Services.

The report stated that creosote once seeped into the neighborhood’s soil, creating a hazardous plume that moved beneath at least 110 homes and churches. The chemicals also contaminated groundwater.

The state has identified 10 areas within Fifth Ward with a high number of cases of adult cancers of the lung, esophagus and throat.

Neighbor Richard Hudson says his family was personally affected by the contaminates.

“My mom died from ovarian cancer, my brother from stomach cancer,” he said. “I don’t think it’s a coincidence.”

Although the study does not determine the exact cause of the cancers, the EPA does associate them with exposure to chemicals found in the groundwater plume.

What’s next for neighbors? Well, they’ll continue their IMPACT group, which they started to address the contamination. They also most likely move forward with legal action.

“They have proved we were right all along. We are humans. We bleed just like everybody else. We breathe just like everybody else. Why can’t we live in clear air and clean neighborhoods like everybody else,” Edwards asked.

In response, Union Pacific released this statement:
“Union Pacific understands the community is concerned and is reaching out to the Texas Department of Health for more information about its findings.”
