Superglue of planet formation: Sticky ice
Scientists at the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, reporting in Astrophysical Journal, offer a cool answer to an age-old planet- formation riddle: Micron-wide dust particles encrusted with molecularly gluey ice enabled planets to bulk up like dirty snowballs quickly enough to overcome the scattering force of solar winds.

Study finds indoor allergen levels vary, cockroach allergens cause more asthma symptoms
Cockroach allergens exacerbate the symptoms of asthmatic children living in inner cities more so than dust mite or pet allergens and amounts of cockroach allergens varies widely in cities across the country, according to a UT Southwestern Medical Center researcher involved in a multicenter study.

Heart Center cardiologist performs rare liver catheter intervention on teen
Through an innovative catheterization procedure, a pediatric cardiologist at Texas Children's Heart Center in Houston repaired a severe liver condition in a 14-year-old male. The doctor used a catheter and septal occluder device that is generally used to close holes in children's hearts. Similar procedures have been reported only six times in medical literature.

Finding hidden invaders in a Hawaiian rain forest
Novel techniques from a high-altitude aircraft, have detected two species of invading plants that are changing the ecology of rain forest near the Kilauea Volcano in the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The study, led by Dr. Gregory Asner of the Carnegie Institution, found that the native dominant tree 'ohia' (Metrosideros polymorpha) has been taken over by the invading Canary Islands tree, Myrica faya. They also identified areas where Myrica invasion is in its early stages.

Hydrogen and methane sustain unusual life at sea floor's 'Lost City'
The hydrothermal vents at the ocean bottom were miles from any location scientists could have imagined. One massive seafloor vent was 18 stories tall. All were creamy white and gray, suggesting a very different composition than the hydrothermal vent systems that have been studied since the 1970s.

Temperature inside collapsing bubble four times that of sun
Using a technique employed by astronomers to determine stellar surface temperatures, chemists at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have measured the temperature inside a single, acoustically driven collapsing bubble. Their results seem out of this world.
