When an 11,000-metric-ton meteor ripped through Earth’s atmosphere on February 15, 2013, it left behind a streak of dust that encircled the planet, satellite data show. Scientists mapped the path of the dust particles and how the jet stream push them around the stratosphere. Follow the link for a video about the event: http://ow.ly/oeHhT #astronomyimages   #saturdayscience

Stress may act a bit like a #vaccine, spurring the immune system to build up resilience to adversity.
Mice without immune systems who receive stressed immune cells are less anxious and more social, suggesting that the immune system can adapt to stress.

Rosetta's signal has been received. Now scientists can get back to commanding the spacecraft as it stalks a #comet. #Rosetta  
The spacecraft has successfully transmitted a signal to Earth, meaning that ESA controllers can now prepare Rosetta for its August rendezvous with comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko.

Duke Lemur Center postdoctoral fellow Erik Patel is featured in an hour-long special on Animal Planet, Tuesday, Dec. 18, 2012 at 8 p.m. Eastern, talking about his work in Madagascar with the rare and elusive (and gorgeous) silky sifaka lemur. Join a Google+ Hangout On Air with Erik and Charlie Welch, lemur center conservation coordinator, before this BBC-produced documentary airs to learn more about their efforts to prevent illegal logging, to educate Malagasy schoolchildren about conservation and to establish protected areas around the last remaining lemur habitat.
