Science of the Week, 5/20/16

Happy release day to the eBook version of Chaos Season! To celebrate, here's Sting with "Desert Rose," a song I associate with Jenna, the heroine of this installment:



Anyway, here are some of the most interesting science news articles I read this week:

NASA directly observes fundamental process of nature for 1st time


How light is detected affects the atom that emits it

Scientists use astronomical software to date 2,500-year old lyric poem

Artificial intelligent replaces physicists

Your friends have more friends than you do

Photonics advances have major implications for the search for extraterrestrial intelligence


Have a good weekend, everyone, and I'll see you on Monday!

Happy release day!! I'll announce it on Monday.
Not a big Sting fan, but I've always thought that was a cool song.
Have a good weekend.
