Science of the Week, 1/13/12

It feels like a long time since I've done one of these posts. So, did you hear about the world's smallest frog or the first chimeric monkeys yet?

Here are some of the most interesting science articles I found on Science Blogs this week:

Almost Perfect: Researcher Nears Creation of Superlens

Global Warming caused by Greenhouse Gases Delays Onset of Next Ice Age

Seeing Quantum Mechanics with the Naked Eye

Three Small Planets Found Outside Our Solar System

Enjoy your weekend, everyone!

I like the:

Three Small Planets Found Outside Our Solar System

That sounds so boring that it has to be interesting. I'm going to check it out.

I saw a picture of the frog - sitting on a quarter I believe. Tiny!

I think planets are going to become very common pretty soon, Deborah.

Alex, I saw that picture too. Hard to believe it's real, isn't it? Apparently, those frogs are born as frogs, not tadpoles. Interesting.

Good stuff there, looking forward to the day those superlenses are easily available to us little folk.
