UNCASVILLE, Conn. — Canadian bantamweight (Gentleman) Josh Hill lost a unanimous decision to American Raufeon (Supa) Stots in the featured bout on the undercard of Bellator 258 on Friday night. All three judges scored it 30-27 for Stots (16-1-0) at the Mohegan Sun Arena. "It's super-rewarding," said Stots. "I'll probably look back at the fight and be like 'Damn, I dominated someone who was 20-3. He's gone the distance with a lot of top world-class fighters. And he's a tough world-class fighter.' "But that just shows my self-belief and my hard work is paying off." The two were originally scheduled to fight at Bellator 253 in November but Hill was injured. The 32-year-old Stots, ranked No. 4 among Bellator 135-pounders, extended his win streak to eight bouts including the last four in Bellator. Hill (20-4-0), ranked No. 7, had won his last four including two in Bellator. The 34-year-old from Hamilton is a graduate of Season 18 of "The Ultimate Fighter,'' where he lost to Michael Wootten on the reality TV show. Bantamweight champion Juan (The Spaniard) Archuleta faced No. 1 contender Sergio (The Phenom) Pettis in the main event of Bellator 258.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — First came the amazing pictures, then the video. Now NASA is sharing sounds of its little helicopter humming through the thin Martian air. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California released this first-ever audio Friday, just before Ingenuity made its fifth test flight, a short one-way trip to a new airfield. During the fourth flight a week earlier, the low hum from the helicopter blades spinning at more than 2,500 revolutions per minute is barely audible. It almost sounds like a low-pitched, faraway mosquito or other flying insect. That’s because the 4-pound (1.8-kilogram) helicopter was more than 260 feet (80 metres) from the microphone on the Perseverance rover. The rumbling wind gusts also obscured the chopper's sound. Scientists isolated the sound of the whirring blades and magnified it, making it easier to hear. Ingenuity — the first powered aircraft to fly at another planet — arrived at Mars on Feb. 18, clinging to Perseverance's belly. Its first flight was April 19; NASA named the takeoff and landing area Wright Brothers Field in honour of Wilbur and Orrville, who made the world's first airplane flights in 1903. A stamp-size piece of wing fabric from the original Wright Flyer is aboard Ingenuity. The $85 million tech demo was supposed to end a few days ago, but NASA extended the mission by at least a month to get more flying time. For Friday afternoon's 108-second test flight, the helicopter travelled southward in the same direction the rover is heading. Once over its new airfield, the chopper soared to twice its previous altitude — 33 feet (10 metres) — took pictures, then landed. The two airfields are 423 feet (129 metres) apart. With the helicopter's first phase complete, the rover can now start hunting for rocks that might contain signs of past microscopic life. Core samples will be collected for eventual return to Earth. ___ The Associated Press Health and Science Department receives support from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s Department of Science Education.

JUNEAU, Alaska — The U.S. Interior Department said Friday that it would not pursue a Trump administration proposal that critics feared would have weakened rules for exploratory oil and gas drilling in Arctic waters. A statement from the department said existing regulations released in 2016 remain in effect and "are critical to ensuring adequate safety and environmental protections for this sensitive ecosystem and Alaska Native subsistence activities.” Leah Donahey, Alaska Wilderness League legislative director, said the rules that have been in place incorporated lessons learned from the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. She also said there has not been a public push by companies showing interest in the region. The changes proposed under the Trump administration were not finalized and sought to remove what federal agencies at that time characterized as “unnecessary, burdensome provisions.” The proposal would have eliminated a requirement that companies submit an operations plan that addresses all aspects of their expected drilling activities before filing an exploration plan, saying companies know they must prepare for risks and challenges through their exploration plan. It also would have changed some rules around containment equipment, among other things, according to a fact sheet from the agencies. Kara Moriarty, president and CEO of the Alaska Oil and Gas Association, said the changes proposed last year made “substantial improvements over the original rule, including revisions to incorporate new technologies and modern drilling practices.” “It is unfortunate that politics have taken over what should have been a purely scientific exercise,” she said in a statement. According to conservation group Oceana, 37 exploratory wells have been drilled in the Beaufort and Chukchi seas since the 1970s, with many of those drilled on leases that have since been relinquished.
