  • There’s million up for grabs for the person or organization with a plan to manage, retrain, and retask NASA employees laid off after the shuttle program ends.
  • The Worm in Your Brain: pure evolutionary biology and pure fun to read, from Carl Zimmer.
  • Stephen Hawking has kicked up quite a media frenzy and a twitter storm purportedly claiming that the universe no longer needs a creator.
  • If you knew calculus like Jennifer Oullette knows calculus, you’ll buy her book and never be afraid of calculus again. And for the record, I freaking love calculus!
