Pi, visualized in a single image.
Pi is what's known as an irrational number, which means that its decimal representation is both infinite and non-repeating. We've been using computers to calculate the digits of Pi for decades.

It's been a strange warn winter in Chicago. On December 9, in the Soldier Field Parking Garage, John Bates found this bird gleaning insects and spiders along the wall deep inside the garage. This time of year most ovenbirds (Seiurus aurocappilus) would be down in Central America and the West Indies, but this bird clearly had other ideas.

The science-minded Icelandic singer takes a microscopic look at the chaotic life inside us all in her new video for "Hollow."

What three science questions do you think the U.S. presidential candidates should answer before we vote on November 6? Please make suggestions below in comments and/or "like" your favorites (deadline is next Tuesday). We’ll publish the top three on our site and on The Guardian’s Citizens Agenda.

Approaches invoked by Arthur C. Clarke and Donald Duck might not work. (A floatation concept, using ping-pong balls, was actually first mentioned in a 1949 Donald Duck comic, and science fiction legend Arthur C. Clarke invoked a similar idea in The Ghost from the Grand Banks, suggesting billions of glass bubbles could raise the Titanic.)
