Happy Wednesday, everybody! Lots of good news this week, from asteroids that aren’t going to kill us all to several awesome new species (and babies of everyone’s favorite new species of the year). Also, updates on the supposed global wine shortage and early puberty epidemic. On the terrible end of the spectrum, though, there’s Haiyan.
Science news! It was a bit of a slow week, but Curiosity found evidence of ancient water on Mars, Google introduced new underwater panoramas of coral reefs, and you won’t believe what they’re doing with whisky in Scotland.
