Interesting bit of information here.

In 1822, a stork with an arrow through its neck taught us that birds migrate.

While the bird was found in Germany, the arrow originated in central Africa, providing the first evidence of seasonal migration in birds. The German word "pfeilstorch" ("arrow stork") describes storks injured by arrows during their seasonal journeys between Europe and Africa—twenty-five pfeilstorch have been found to date.

Bruce Lipton, not mentioned in the article, but should be, is one of the worst purveyors of pushing epigenetics to claim that our thoughts influence our DNA. I read one of his books in the 90s and it was so frustrating. Twisting science to propagate these beliefs is doing such a disservice to science. Lipton himself has a PhD in cell biology but he was sucked into this distorted thinking.

Pluto is larger than we thought! Data from one of the tools on New Horizons has found that the dwarf planet is 1,473 miles in diameter. We have also learned the size of Pluto’s smaller moons: Nix is approximately 20 miles across, while Hydra is around 30 miles. We're excited to receive more data like this after tomorrow’s #PlutoFlyby More: http://go.nasa.gov/1K4fids

Oooh!

Otherworldly is the only way we can describe this pic of Yellowstone

This jaw-dropping multi-image panorama shows Grand Prismatic Spring (Yellowstone's largest and most colorful hot spring)  at night with the ‪Milky Way sparkling above it and the stars reflected in the water below. Image courtesy of David Lane.

It's stunning, but is the real? The answer: Yes, but you have to know a little about astrophotography to understand. First, the image is 16 individual images stitched together (not stacked like HDR) to create a large panorama of the night sky. The stitching creates the curve in the Milky Way in order to keep the ground straight (think of it like taking an orange peel and laying it out flat, the sphere gets distorted). The Milky Way is colorful because camera light sensors can pick up more light than the human eye (most people just see the stars in black and white). This photo also shows air glow radiating out of the horizon and the aurora in the left corner.

Your thoughts?
University presses have been publishing some good books lately, and deserve commendation for that. Meatier than some of the big publishers' books while not being the dense, obtuse books one might normally consider coming from university presses (which, as the article states, are still being published there)
Books I can think of offhand that are published by UPs
Your Inner Fish by RS! guest Neil Shubin (U of Chicago)
How to Clone a Mammoth by Beth Shapiro (Princeton)
The Ordinary Spaceman by Clayton Anderson (U of Nebraska)

Others you enjoy?
