Why that old trick of bouncing batteries to check if they're still good really does work [VIDEO].
Scientists prove that depleted AA batteries will bounce higher when you drop them, as inner material loses density

Email is to messaging as interview is to conversation. Many elements in common, save for the aura that surrounds each.

But maybe what most people consider creative draws in other people, like music, while only a precious few will appreciate an improvement to, say, a sewage system. Which is why popularizing science is so important, so for instance more people might find space "sexy" as better and better pictures are more widely distributed making it accessible to them. Did researchers consider inclusiveness versus exclusiveness of the activity I wonder?
