Because baby, it’s fucking freezing outside!
It’s mostly fun stuff in this edition of science news! We’ve got good news regarding a possible asteroid hitting Earth, takedowns of some really dumb science, and cool videos of Mars, the Moon, and a rebuttal to climate change deniers. Plus, a special Halloween treat if you read all the way to the end!
It’s been a few weeks since we last covered science news, so I tried to just hit the highlights. What sort of highlights, you might ask? Pink planets, baby orangutans, the olinguito (obviously), and a bear hoedown. Get ready for the awesomeness!
So many cool science stories this week! Conditions were right for there to have been life on Mars! Daisy Morris, dinosaur hunter, is the coolest 9-year-old on the planet. And can earthquakes really turn water to gold?
Science news is having a total eclipse of the sun today, along with some really smart animals and an awesome gif of the solar system.
