Science of the Week, 9/4/15

Happy Force Friday! Are the toys going to be with you today? I admit I have my eye on the BB-8 droid--it would go great with my Jawa outfit.

Here are some of the most interesting science news articles I read this week:

Can rain clean the atmosphere?

Parasitized bees are self-medicating in the wild

Ancient cold period could provide clues about future climate change

Completely paralyzed man voluntarily moves his legs

Ice sheets may be more resilient than thought

Magnetic wormhole connecting two regions of space created for the first time
(Lyon's Legacy and Twinned Universes edge a little closer to reality)

Clues from ancient Maya reveal lasting impact on environment

Finding a way forward in the fight against prion disease

I'm going to take Labor Day off from blogging, so see you next Wednesday! Enjoy your weekend!

I always thought rain cleared the air.
Force Friday? Good to know. Nothing planned today, but we got Mad Max Fury Road on 3D Bluray, so there will be a movie this weekend.
