News in the real world has been pretty terrible recently; mercifully, science has brought us some things to smile about. Mars probably isn’t gonna get smacked by a comet after all, wet washcloths do interesting things in space, and it’s ok to have the occasional drink when you’re pregnant!
This week in science news is a real mixed bag. We have solar storms colliding with the earth, more twins than ever before, mercury poisoning in areas that were previously thought safe, and really old dinosaur babies. Cool pictures after the jump!
