The Wired hybrid animals wish list is beautifully illustrated by artists in the Science Illustration Program at CSU Monterey Bay. Includes bioluminescent birds and piranhatees and pandaroos and more! http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2013/06/hybrid-animal-wish-list/

And now there are at least five moons circling Pluto! The newest moony addition is currently called P5, but the scientist who spotted the moon offers a more appropriate suggestion...

Planetary landscapes on FB -- check out the sunset on Mars! Gorgeous pics and updates from people who know what they're talking about -- including one from today: a pic of the enormous mountain range on Iapetus, my favorite rebellious moon. <like!>

The physics of Angry Birds, Space...including delightful takes on the game by a JPL mission designer, the brain behind Box2d (the physics engine behind many of these games), and a theorist who recently modeled the orbits of planets around binary stars (looks like a pinball game).

Have you actually done any Research into the UFO phenomenon? There have been so many sightings, pictures, radar data of things in the sky moving in ways that defy the physics that we know..

based on you closing your chat section in your article it seems obvious to me and other Skeptics that you're not even willing to entertain the idea that our military might have aircraft that defies conventional physics even that would be classified as an unidentified flying object or unidentified aerial phenomenon..

How can we investigate something that's being covered up? I'm not saying that all the sightings are real or misinterpreted but the sheer number of events and data over the years alien abductions of implants and weird materials found by other scientists..

If you actually believe in science then please please do the research if you actually want to know the truth please please try people have been killed for knowing too much about this if you're an actual scientist and do the research it's unlikely that you will be killed because you are the daughter of a famous scientist please for the sake of the planet just do the right thing :(

More on the mysterious sea lion pup stranding. The number of rescues is now around 1,000 -- but that's just a fraction of the pups having a bad time offshore. http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2013/03/sea-lion-pups-norcal/
