‎"Trouble is, DEQ waited 10 days before alerting the public to that serious breach of protocol. Not only that, a DEQ official had assured the public earlier in the week that there was no contamination caused by Hurricane Isaac's floodwaters at Stolthaven. The agency knew that wasn't true.

DEQ officials acknowledged Friday that air monitoring immediately after Isaac found levels of a toxic chemical that were high enough to require the use of a respirator on a levee outside the Stolthaven terminal. Testing of floodwaters outside the facility revealed the presence of chemicals that were above drinking water standards but acceptable for "incidental contact with water and wading."


The Radiation Belt Storm Probes (RBSP) mission will take off from Cape Canaveral atop an Atlas V rocket. The twin probes will then separate from the Atlas V and follow two slightly different, highly elliptical, orbits that will range from low earth orbit (a few hundred kilometers up) all the way out to where geostationary satellites operate (about 30 000 km up). For at least two years, the probes will continuously cycle through both the inner and outer Van Allen belts, where charged particles have been concentrated by Earth’s magnetic field.
