Icy volcano on saturn's moon
Saturn is a planet that almost everyone knows about--it's the one with the pretty stripes and all the rings. Last year a little spaceship about the size of a short school bus flew really close to one of Saturn's moons called Enceladus. The spaceship Cassini was packed with lots of tools to help scientists get a good look at the faraway moon.

Chimps try to help
How many people have you helped today? Did you help your brother find his shoes before school? Did you lend a pencil to your best friend in math class? Did you help your soccer coach put away the balls after practice? If you did, you must be a human. Humans are some of the most helpful animals around. We lend a hand to our family, our friends, sometimes even strangers. Other animals aren't even close to being that helpful--or are they?

A beaver buddy for the dinosaurs?
Wouldn't it be cool to go back in time and see what things looked like 164 million years ago? Those were the days of the dinosaurs, which is why scientists digging in China were so surprised when they found a new animal fossil from that time that looks a lot like a beaver!

For tomatoes, yummy means healthy
Can a tomato taste healthy? That's what some scientists think. They wonder if maybe the flavors of a tomato or a strawberry give us little clues about the vitamins and other healthy stuff inside, according to a study in the 10 February issue of the journal Science.

Find far fish fast
In May of 2003, scientists recorded tens of millions of fish swimming around in one loosely connected group in the Atlantic Ocean not so far from New York City. That's a lot of fish to keep track of at the same time. In fact, that's the most fish, and maybe the most creatures that have ever been instantaneously "caught on film."

Tracking cougars with a virus bug
What if your mom could tell where you'd been and who you'd been hanging out with after school, just by checking to see who else in your neighborhood also had the nasty cold you caught last week? That's the kind of snooping some scientists did recently when they wanted to know where cougars were living and roaming around in the western United States and Canada.
