Revolutionary laser system could produce the next LHC
Declaring a truce with our microbiological friemenies

There are times when I feel I ought to limit the number of links I post to ten or so, but then I come across a treasure trove of articles that I can't pass up. That said, are there branches of science you want me to focus on, like medicine or space? I do try to pick articles that might be useful for SF worldbuilding.
Happy Easter to all of those who celebrate the holiday! Enjoy your weekend, and I'll see you Monday.
