Science of the Week, 3/21/14

Spring is finally and officially here! (I know the first day was yesterday, but since it's also my parents' anniversary today, I always think of 3/21 as the first day of spring.)

The main science news for the week is the discovery of gravitational waves that Einstein predicted. These waves provide additional support for the Big Bang theory.

Here are some other science news articles I found interesting:

Stretchable antenna for wearable health monitoring

Antarctic telescope may have provided the first direct evidence of origins of the universe

Children's preferences for sweeter and saltier tastes are linked to each other

Simulating how the Earth kick-started metabolism

Honey is a new approach to fighting antibiotic resistance

Climate change will reduce crop yields sooner than we thought

MIT team creates bionic plants

Emotion detectors could make driving safer

The precise reason for the health benefits of dark chocolate: mystery solved

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