Happy Halloween! To all of you who are participating in National Novel Writing Month tomorrow, good luck! I have too many works-in-progress to start a new one for NaNoWriMo this year. I'm working on the final section of Scattered Seasons, the second book in the Season Avatar series, so my modest goal for the month is to finish it. Once that's done, I'll return to the Catalyst Chronicles series for the rest of the year.
Anyway, here are some of the most interesting science news articles I read this week:
Growing a blood vessel in a week
Ebola's evolutionary roots more ancient than previously thought
Newly discovered microbe is key in climate change
Dinosaur noses enhanced smelling and cooled brain
How cells know which way to go
It's better for memory to make mistakes while learning
Cutting power could dramatically boost laser output
Scientists engineer toxin-secreting stem cells to treat brain tumors
Slowing the biological clock to aid pregnancy
Have a good weekend, everyone, and see you Monday!
