Science of the Week, 6/8/18

I don't think there's much news that can top the discovery of organic matter and methane on Mars (which isn't life itself, but possible evidence of life). If you're into particle physics, new Higgs Boson observations and new neutrinos might be more your speed. Otherwise, here are some of the (other) most interesting science news stories I read this week:

Scientists develop material that could regenerate dental enamel

Smart containers to reward people for recycling properly

Spooky quantum particle pairs fly like weird curveballs

The psychosocial toll of our increasingly online lives

Growing "green" rice

How do you weigh a galaxy? Especially the one you're in?

Is an immunization for stress on the horizon?

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

That was big news.
Now why would you want to weigh a galaxy?

Green rice would go perfectly with green eggs and ham.
