Where were you when you heard the news about 9/11? I'd been in the lab at my old job and came back to my desk. There was a message on the phone from my husband, telling me what had happened. While my co-worked chatted about something else, I burst out with the news. That definitely changed the tone of the office. I spent a lot of the day trying to find out how my friends in New York were doing. Thankfully, they were all OK.
Anyway, here are some of the most interesting science news articles I read this week:
Organic "computers" made of DNA could process data inside our bodies
Researchers demo solar water-splitting technology
Farthest galaxy detected
Customizing 3-D printing
Researchers transform recoded cells into factories that produce novel proteins
New species of human ancestor discovered in South Africa
Fertilize the ocean, cool the planet?
Have a good weekend, and see you Monday!
