It appears to be a Twilight Zone episode. In the style of War of the Worlds, I guess. It sounds very scary. I don't think I'll watch.

In case you need to know precisely where the moon's shadow will fall during the eclipse.
Thanks to elevation data of the moon from our Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, coupled with our detailed topography data of Earth, we have the most accurate maps of the upcoming August solar eclipse for the U.S. More: http://go.nasa.gov/2hXDyrr

Parents,

If your don't have that conversation with your teenagers, someone else will! Don't let that happen; talk to them now.

It looks like these researchers have been exploring the less popular pilot-wave theories for quantum mechanics. The following is intriguing:

Two recent papers authored by members of this investigation team explored the scientific ramifications of this ZPF-based background medium. The first paper [18] considered the quantum vacuum at the cosmological scale in which a thought experiment applied to the Einstein tensor yielded an equation that related the gravitational constant to the quantity of vacuum energy in the universe, implying that gravity might be viewed as an emergent phenomenon: a long wavelength consequence of the quantum vacuum. This viewpoint was scaled down to the atomic level to predict the density of the quantum vacuum in the presence of ordinary matter. This approach yielded a predicted value for the Bohr radius and electron mass with a direct dependency on dark energy.
Verrry interesting… but in the words of Carl Sagan, extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. It's probably an error. Then again, it could be the start of something huge. #reactionlessthrustersmaybe

Impressive!
Here's a video of things falling down in a good way. Something to cheer up your weekend.
