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.

Speeding through space with a wisp of gas
For almost half a century, spacecraft crossed the Solar System by burning chemical fuel in rocket engines. Then, in 2004, ESA's Smart-1 spacecraft reached the Moon using a revolutionary ion engine. Now ESA and the Australian National University have successfully tested an advanced ion engine that is many times more powerful and fuel efficient.
