North Carolina team places first in Moody's Mega Math Challenge
Students from North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics tasted victory -- and a healthier school lunch -- on Monday, when the team of five high school seniors earned the top prize at the ninth annual Moody's Mega Math Challenge. The winning team prevailed over nearly 1,200 competing high schools and received $20,000 in scholarships for presenting the best answer to the question: can school lunches be nutritious, affordable, and delicious?

'Condor Watch' enlists public to help save California condors
Lead poisoning is a major cause of death for California condors, an endangered species. Scientists think photos taken by motion-activated cameras at condor feeding sites could give them clues about how lead poisoning spreads. But they have too many photos to analyze by themselves and have launched a web site to get help from the public.

How to discover species (without killing them)
It's no surprise that newly discovered species (or even 'rediscovered' species that researchers had thought were extinct) often come from small, isolated populations. This fact means that these new species are already at risk -- but museums and private collectors can make these species' situation even worse, according to the authors of a Perspective article in this week's issue of Science.

Why you couldn't hide your spaceship in a nebula
You can't always believe what you see on TV; Star Trek, Star Wars and BattleStar: Galactica have all shown spaceships hiding inside thick, gassy nebulas in space. But this isn't quite realistic -- find out why.

Solving the mystery of massive star birth
Like people, stars are born, they grow old and they die. Small and medium-sized stars, we know, are born in enormous clouds of cold gas and cosmic dust known as nebulae. But what about the most massive stars? Scientists think they've found a clue to help us solve the mystery of massive star birth.

How flies escape the swatter
Anyone who's ever swatted at a fly knows how fast the small, winged insects can be. Now, a new study shows how flies are able to make such quick escapes -- and the way they do it is not what researchers had expected.
