Science of the Week, 8/24/12

For me, the most exciting event of the week is my son starting kindergarten today. However, there's plenty of science news going on as well. Here are a few of the most interesting news articles from ScienceBlog this week:

Key to burning fat faster discovered

The Milky Way now has a twin (or two)

Multiple factors, including climate change, led to collapse and depopulation of ancient Maya

Self-charging power cell converts and stores energy in a single unit

Sea life facing major extinction "shock"

"DNA wires" could help physicians diagnose disease

That's it for this week. Enjoy your weekend, and see you Monday!
