Our last daily program of the 2015-2016 academic year features reports on extensive flooding in Texas and the aftermath of a massive wildfire in Alberta, Canada. We're also discussing the world's longest and deepest tunnel, which was recently completed in Switzerland, and we're showing you how scientists can track the quality of air by flying right through it. Our daily program will resume on Monday, August 15. Thank you for an extraordinary year!
