This is pretty cool. One of the newly discovered uses for graphene, the single layer of carbon atoms for which Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov won the Nobel Prize for Physics, is the examination of liquids under an electron microscope. The process of examination requires liquids to be encapsulated with a solid, something that prevented their high resolution study. Now, Jong Min Yuk of the University of Berkeley has been able to study the formation of nanocrystals through the use of graphene. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-17628145

The miracle material. My research centers around synthesizing it in interesting geometries, so I have started memorizing the potential applications in preparation for my defense. The interesting part, is that this stuff is so new most of these applications usually don't pan out. This is a neat one though.

Regardless of your views on how Apple has handled its workers rights issues in China, for Li Keqiang to say this is a pretty remarkable push towards greater accountability and transparency. Li also said that China would strengthen its intellectual property rights, which would be a major boost to not only foreign investors and companies as well as Chinese consumers and firms. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-17553296

The partial remains of a fossilized foot show that Lucy, our common human ancestor, was not alone in East Africa 3-4 million years ago. While they cannot definitively identify the species, they do know that it was not Australopithecus Afarensis, to which Lucy belonged. The remains are distinguishable from Afarensis due to a big toe that is set to allow tree climbing, whilst also remaining upright when walking on the ground. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-17533826

Pretty freaking sweet. A giant picture of the Milky Way galaxy. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-17539315
