Plate tectonics is Generation X!
Fifty years ago, a graduate student named Walter Pitman made a discovery that would change the way we see our planet. It was late at night, and Pitman was reviewing charts of ship data that had just come off the computer at what was then Columbia University's Lamont Geological Observatory.

As the city’s vacant lots, old factories and former warehouses are being redeveloped, colonies of cats are forced to find new habitats.

Happy birthday EurekAlert!
 
You see science stories on Google+ and across the internet all the time. Chances are they came from this single place, launched twenty years ago this week.

Story
Tagline
" ... But, uh, I'm a sheep-pig ... " (Babe, 1995)
Introduction
"You are not making any sense! "
"I don't have to! I'm Italian! "
(Rock Hudson and Gina Lollobrigida in: "Come September ", 1961)
------------------------------​-------

"When I heard the learn'd astronomer
When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me,
When I was shown the charts and diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them,
When I sitting heard the astronomer where he lectured with
Much applause in the lecture room,
How soon unaccountable I became tired and sick,
Till rising and gliding out I'd wander'd off by myself,
In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,
Look'd up in perfect silence at the stars."
(Walt Whitman)
------------------------------​----------

"That's my secret Cap, I'm always angry."
(Bruce Banner, The Avengers.)
-----------------------------------------

The second best part of science is knowing, just for a little while, something nobody else knows. The best part is sharing it with someone.
