Nuclear radiation concerns are up at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation facility in the United States where an underground tunnel collapsed. The site has been functioning as a depository of radioactive nuclear waste since 1980. The nuclear waste removal at the site has been costing more than $2 billion a year and is supposed to go on until 2040. The facility contains 56 million gallons of nuclear waste stored in 177 underground tanks.
The grand finale of NASA Cassini spacecraft has set one more milestone after the successful second dive on May 2 between the Saturn and its rings. With its camera — equipped with CL1 and CL2 filter — pointed at its rings and away from the planet's surface, Cassini offered amazing images with an eerie touch. The second dive also gave Cassini a broader proximity to the planet's outer atmosphere and came within 1,820 miles radius.
The human mission to Mars has excited the public as the red planet is looked upon as the next destination for the biggest space mission after the human foray into Moon in the late 1960s. In the run up to the mission, NASA's robotic probe, Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) gathered useful data for supporting the preparations for the crewed missions. In less than two decades, the human mission to Mars will be a reality with NASA estimating to land humans on the red planet by 2030.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
