Science of the Week, 12/21/12
The last I heard, Australia was still around, so I think the Mayan end-of-the-world prediction won't interfere with any science reading you may want to do today. Here are a few articles to whet your appetite:
Peel-and-stick solar panels
Are bacteria making you hungry?
The Green Revolution is wilting
Closest Sun-like star may have planets
Do palm trees hold the key to immortality?
Liquid metal creates wires that stretch 8x original length
Plants in space: gravity not needed to orient root growth
How white dwarfs mimic black holes
Should physicians prescribe cognitive enhancers to healthy individuals?
Strides in understanding quantum entanglement
Team develops swarm of pingpong-ball sized robots
Molecules have not changed much in the past seven billion years
And on that note, I feel optimistic that we'll still be here on Monday. Enjoy your weekend (and your last-minute holiday preparations), and we'll back with more of the BRoP Year in Review.
