New 'time machine' from ice
Thanks to air bubbles trapped in a long cylinder of ice from a glacier in Antarctica, scientists have jumped an extra 210,000 years back in time. This scientific "time machine" now tells us how much carbon dioxide and methane was in the air as far back as 650,000 years ago.

What do butterfly wings and TV screens have in common?
Many of the gadgets we use every day work by controlling the movement of light waves. CD and DVD players use lasers to read information off disks, allowing us to listen to music or watch movies. Optical fibers carry information signals long distances, in the form of light, allowing telephones and other devices to "talk" to each other.

First Galileo satellites named
In the years to come, no fewer than 30 European navigation satellites will be launched into orbit around the Earth. One landmark of this ambitious project passed on 9 November, when the first pair of test satellites were named GIOVE (Galileo In-Orbit Validation Element).

Europe's first farmers
People migrating from the Middle East brought farming techniques to present-day Germany and other parts of central Europe about 7,500 years ago. For years, scientists have been arguing over whether people with European ancestors are closely related to these first farmers. Some scientists say yes. Others say no and argue instead that people with European roots are closely related to the humans who lived in Europe long before the first farmers showed up.

Logging, a bigger threat to the rainforest than we knew
The amount of land in the Amazon rainforest that's being damaged by human activities is twice as large as we had previously thought, suggests a new study. That's because researchers didn't have a good idea of how much logging was occurring there, until now.

National Chemistry Week gets kids excited about chemistry
This year, National Chemistry Week, Oct. 16-22, intends to interest kids in chemistry and expose economically disadvantaged students to new educational opportunities in the laboratory. The theme, "The Joy of Toys," focuses on how chemistry plays an essential part in our everyday lives, especially the inventing and making of toys. National Chemistry Week is an annual event sponsored by the American Chemical Society.
