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.

Studying fragments of a space rock (one shown) that lit up the California sky last year has given scientists an unprecedented look at the chemistry of the early solar system: http://ow.ly/oI2IT #chemistry   #meteor

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.
