Happy Easter! You may have painted eggs today, but did you know eggs sometimes have colors we don't see in the supermarket? The eggs are also colors we can't see, as birds can see UV light that we can't. Learn more about the science of eggs (including why they're so strong!).

Excited about Kepler finding a planet that resembles our own (and could, maybe, possibly, sustain life)? Maybe you should be... an Alien Hunter! Meet Jill Tarter, the director of the SETI Institute.

If you thought driving your kids to visit your family for Easter was difficult, how about driving a T-Rex skeleton 2,000 miles in 16 crates? Catch up on that story and everything else you may have missed in This Week in Science.

Today marks the day that Apollo 13 splashed down in the Pacific Ocean, returning to Earth after its harrowing 3-day adventure. If you weren't around for the astronauts' safe return, you probably watched the movie with Tom Hanks. But did "Apollo 13" provide an accurate view into what happened? We took a look.

Did you know: Your ear produces sound of its own when two tones are played together at just the right ratio? Artist Jacob Kirkegaard plays with this concept in his interactive sound piece, Labyrinthitis.

The beautiful red hue of the Blood Moon was out in force last night, but if you couldn't stay up that late to wait for it, Space.com has some beautiful photos for you: http://ow.ly/vOuQ6

Are you traveling for Easter? You're likely using a GPS for directions; here's how it works. And if you're not, well, this is still interesting.

NASA announces that Kepler has discovered the first Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of a star. They're currently hosting a press conference and taking questions via Twitter. Ask yours with #AskNASA.
