Science of the Week, 9/7/12

Wow, it's hard to believe it's already September, isn't it?

Here are some of the most interesting science articles I read this week. The first group of articles are from Science Blog:

"Magic carpet" could help prevent falls

As people age, they rely on supernatural more (The original title is misleading; I think it should say, "they rely on supernatural explanations more")

Researchers find a protein that helps DNA repair in aging cells

On the evolution of immortality

Quantum physics at a distance

Male birth control pill may be ready soon

The quantum world only partially melts

CNN reports that a sugar used to make RNA was found around a star.

The NY Times reports on the uses of "junk" DNA--to regulate all of the coding DNA.

Enjoy your weekend, everyone, and see you on Monday!

I did read about the "magic carpet" over at Huffington Post (of all places! LOL!) and although I don't quite understand the science and engineering and tech behing it all - I'm just glad it's been invented!

Take care
