Dr Simon Singh has found that a formula that appears on a blackboard in an episode of the long running cartoon series predicts the mass of the Higgs boson, which was finally proved to exist only in 2013.

I almost understand this 
First ever photograph of light as a particle and a wave
Summary:
Light behaves both as a particle and as a wave. Since the days of Einstein, scientists have been trying to directly observe both of these aspects of light at the same time. Now, scientists have succeeded in capturing the first-ever snapshot of this dual behavior.

A photon is released when an electron is overcharged from heating the atom. If the heat is constant, then the photons are released at a constant frequency. Thus the photons are received in waves.

"DNA analysis has revealed evidence for a massive migration into the heartland of Europe 4,500 years ago.
Data from the genomes of 69 ancient individuals suggest that herders moved en masse from the continent's eastern periphery into Central Europe.
These migrants may be responsible for the expansion of Indo-European languages, which make up the majority of spoken tongues in Europe today.
An international team has published the research in the journal Nature.
Prof David Reich and colleagues extracted DNA from remains found at archaeological sites around the continent. They used a new DNA-enrichment technique that greatly reduces the amount of sequencing needed to obtain genome-wide data.
Their analyses show that 7,000-8,000 years ago, a closely related group of early farmers moved into Europe from the Near East, confirming the findings of previous studies.
The farmers were distinct from the indigenous hunter-gatherers they encountered as they spread around the continent. Eventually, the two groups mixed, so that by 5,000-6,000 years ago, the farmers' genetic signature had become melded with that of the indigenous Europeans.
But previous studies show that a two-way amalgam of farmers and hunters is not sufficient to capture the genetic complexity of modern Europeans. A third ancestral group must have been added to the melting pot more recently.
Prof Reich and colleagues have now identified a likely source area for this later diaspora. The Bronze Age Yamnaya pastoralists of southern Russia are a good fit for the missing third genetic component in Europeans".

The BEST quality meats. Used to love going here as a kid with my parents just to get some stick bologna and scrapple for breakfast. Whenever I'm back in the area I make sure to stop and stock up to bring 300 miles back home!

They do one thing(basically) and they do it well. Breakfast. They're open till 1 on weekdays, but this place is for breakfast. Huge portions, small prices. The seating can be tight when they are busy, which is most of the time. Which says something! One of the best places for breakfast in the area.

Deep fried goodness. A little pricey but being a local summer tradition it's almost expected. All outside seating at picnic tables. Which is why it's seasonal. You're not a Adams/North Adams local unless you've been here at least once. Each summer.

Delicious dishes and you can't beat the atmosphere. You can request your own comfy armchairs inside, or sit outside by the fire in the summer. Generous serving sizes and a full bar with some tasty drinks on the menu. The deserts are some of the best I've had.

The Black Diamond steak is their "specialty", but everything on the menu is great. Some awesome seasonal dishes that are hard to forget. The food, and the view are well worth it. Get a table next to a window, or outside on the deck in the summer.
