Science of the Week, 12/13/13

It's a good thing we only have twelve months in the year, as otherwise we might have a 13/13/13 date. That might make a lot of people stay home from work.

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

"Radiation-Eating" Fungi Finding Could Trigger Recalculation of Earth's Energy Balance and Help Feed Astronauts 
(This is an old article, but it was featured on Science in My Fiction this week.)

Activating pathway could restart hair growth in dormant hair follicles

Flipping a gene switch reactivates fetal hemoglobin, may reverse sickle cell disease

Time warp: researcher shows possiblity of cloning quantum info from the past

Probiotic therapy alleviates autism-like behaviors in mice

Protein crosses blood-brain barrier to degrade Alzheimer plaques

3D printed implants may soon fix complex injuries

Liquid to gel to bone: temp-sensitive gel regenerates facial bones

Have a good weekend, everyone! I'll be over at Scene 13 on Sunday and will announce the post here when it goes live.
