Climate-friendly rice recognized as a top science development of 2015
The creation of a new kind of rice which gives off nearly zero greenhouse gas emissions during its growth has earned kudos for a team of scientists from three continents, including the lead investigator at the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. The new kind of rice grows in a manner that nearly eliminates the production of methane, a potent greenhouse gas.

Why do galaxies spin? York U researcher earns award for groundbreaking discovery
A York University researcher will receive an award Nov. 24 for furthering the understanding the universe, including the discovery of outer-lying groupings of galaxies similar to ours and the reason why they spin.
