Much to the chagrin of summer party planners, weather is a notoriously chaotic system. Small changes in precipitation, temperature, humidity, wind speed or direction, etc. can balloon into an entirely new set of conditions within a few days. That's why weather forecasts become unreliable more than about seven days into the future - and why picnics need backup plans.
The United States' first large offshore wind farm, the 800 megawatt (MW) Vineyard Wind project, has scored pricing well below analyst expectations, starting at $74 per MW-hour (MWh) for the first phase of the project and an even more impressive $65/MWh for the project's second phase.
Businesses and public agencies are buying more clean energy than ever before.

Ozcan Research Group/UCLA The network, composed of a series of polymer layers, works using light that travels through it. Each layer is 8 centimeters square. A team of UCLA electrical and computer engineers has created a physical artificial neural network - a device modeled on how the human brain works - that can analyze large volumes of data and identify objects at the actual speed of light.
Robots designed to interact socially with humans are slowly becoming more and more common. They're appearing as receptionists, tour guides, security guards, and porters. But how good are we at treating these robots as robots? A growing body of evidence suggests not good at all.
