Science of the Week, 10/26/12

It's time for the last science post of the month! Here are some of the most interesting stories from ScienceBlog this week:

Scientists build "mechanically active" DNA material

Highly efficient production of advanced biofuel by metabolically engineered organism

Can your body sense future events without any external clue?

Improving effectiveness of solar geoengineering

How a fish broke a law of physics

Climate change may alter amphibian evolution

Living cables explain enigmatic electric currents

Voice prostheses can help patients regain lost voice

As if all of these articles aren't enough, I also read the November 2012 issue of Scientific American  this week. It has articles on the inner life of quarks, how to grow eyes outside the body, how penguins evolved, the link between autism and the technical mind, and how quantum theory may offer a way out of the Prisoner's Dilemma.

Happy reading, everyone, and I'll see you Monday!
