Could many supernovae be the result of high-speed, head-on collisions?

Longhorn crazy ants cooperating to transfer an item much too heavy for one to move alone.

A physics-based model can explain how ants cooperate in steering food to their nest

The olfactory fingerprint of the person in the middle remains consistent, even after 30 days (right), but is very different from that of another person (left)

Weizmann Institute Scientists develop an “olfactory fingerprint” test that may do more than just identify individuals

A new mathematical formula can reveal how fast a planet is rotating

Measuring the response to novelty: A mouse repeatedly touches the object and pulls away (nose and whisker contacts are color-coded; d is the distance of the snout from the object)
A mathematical model shows how our brains may take in novelty
RiboSNitches: these RNA segments in the mother and father have slightly different sequences, but very different folding patterns

Folds in the RNA strands called RiboSNitches may affect protein function
