The ozone hole that appears annually over Antarctica has also stopped growing bigger every year.

Scientists say the recovery is entirely due to political determination to…
What do ex-British prime minster Gordon Brown, Jackie Onassis, Britney Spears and I all have in common? We all are (or were) nail biters.
It’s not a habit I’m proud of. It’s pretty disgusting for other people to watch, ruins the appearance of my hands, is probably unhygienic and sometimes hurts if I take it too far. I’ve tried to quit many times, but have never managed to keep it up.

The Foton-M4 satellite returned to Earth on Monday, the Roscosmos agency said in a statement (in Russian).

On the edge of the Google campus in Silicon Valley there’s a nondescript building. Until now, what’s inside has remained a secret. I’m about to enter with Nick Roy, one of Google’s employees. “This is a place that not many people without a Google badge get to see,” I joke. “This is a place that not many people with a Google badge get to see,” comes the reply.
Roy, as was widely reported last…
India’s economy grew by 5.7% in the three months to June, its fastest pace in two-and-a-half years, according to an official estimate.
The economy was helped by strong growth in electricity, gas and water supply, and financial services, the Ministry of Statistics said.

India’s new government has launched policies designed to encourage…
A Hampshire pest controller said he took on “the biggest job of his career”, after being called to deal with a nest of more than 5,000 wasps.
John Birkett, of Longwood Services Pest Control, said removing the 3ft (91cm) nest from a bed in Winchester was his most unusual job in 45 years.
He said it would have been “extremely dangerous” if the homeowner had tried to remove it herself.
He added: “I…
Europe’s Rosetta mission, which aims to put a robot on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, has identified five potential locations for the touchdown.
The choice of sites was driven largely by operational considerations – they are places engineers believe a lander can get down with the least risk.
No-one has attempted to land on a 10-billion-tonne comet before.
The Rosetta probe will despatch its…
