On Thursday in the journal Stem Cell Reports, the team reported new insights into precisely which cells are becoming the new hair cells.

Death Star Engineer Addresses the Exhaust Port ‘Issue’

This is a pretty hilarious read. The engineer responsible for the design of the Death Star finally addresses that whole exhaust port issue and why he put the port there in the first place. He even addresses the design of the Death Star II and how the same mistake won’t be made again.
