"Yes, certainly and thankfully, we’ve seen formal barriers drop to participation in science by women and other groups unseen in the lab over the last few decades. Yet, sadly and infuriatingly, the habits of mind that once almost entirely barred women from the lab remain, less potent, perhaps, but still at work."

What NASA Calls Microgravity is Really Freefall. "Astronauts and everything else that isn't tied down on the ISS appear to float about not because they are in "microgravity" or even small gravity (as NASA prefers to define micro). Nor are they floating about because they are "weightless." They aren't actually floating at all. They are falling." http://physicsbuzz.physicscentral.com/2015/08/nasas-microgravity-hoax.html

Motherboard reports from a conference of space elevator enthusiasts. So naturally the takeaway is: Space Elevators Are Totally Possible (If Someone Will Just Pay for It). “This would of course all go a lot faster if we had, you know, money.”  http://motherboard.vice.com/read/space-elevators-are-totally-possible-if-someone-will-just-pay-for-it

Um, no -- the technical challenges are truly daunting and will require more than big wads of cash. See my own take on space elevators from April: http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/cocktail-party-physics/putting-a-new-spin-on-space-elevators/

The Fembots of Ashley Madison. Annalee Newitz​ continues her investigation into the company's shady practices. http://gizmodo.com/the-fembots-of-ashley-madison-1726670394 "In the data dump of Ashley Madison’s internal emails, I found ample evidence that the company was actively paying people to create fake profiles. Sometimes they outsourced to companies who build fake profiles, like the ones Caitlin Dewey wrote about this week in the Washington Post. But many appear to have been generated by people working for Ashley Madison. The company even had a shorthand for these fake profiles—'angels.'"

"Ceramicist Haejin Lee creates sculptures that seem to unravel before your eyes, ceramic forms that open and splay outwards to make vessels unusable and faces far more interesting. Utilizing minimal color Lee instead focuses on her shapeshifting creations, often incorporating human elements like eyes and mouths that sprout from the banded chaos."

Quantum Political Scientists Hypothesize Country Headed In Both Right And Wrong Directions Simultaneously: “Rather than inhabiting a single reality where the nation’s future looks bright or an opposite one where Americans are struggling like never before, our research suggests that these two conditions actually exist concurrently in a state of superposition.” http://www.theonion.com/article/quantum-political-scientists-hypothesize-country-h-51186 
When, oh when, will the wave function collapse and rid us of this blasted superposition? :)

Ingenious Q&A: Nicholas Epley, author of "Mindwise," asks, can we ever really know another person? “There’s more blackness in the mind of another person than we think there is....“You can’t overcome your own experiences, beliefs, attitudes, emotions, knowledge, and visual perspective to recognize that others may view the world differently.”  http://nautil.us/issue/27/dark-matter/ingenious-nicholas-epley

A growing American demographic: Children raised without religion, with moral values soundly intact http://fw.to/86eRnhf "nonreligious family life is replete with its own sustaining moral values and enriching ethical precepts. Chief among those: rational problem solving, personal autonomy, independence of thought, avoidance of corporal punishment, a spirit of “questioning everything” and, far above all, empathy."
