Despite few food options, abundant assortment of species
A close look at tropical flies and the parasitic wasps that lay eggs inside them reveals an incredibly complex web of interactions, including some that would have remained hidden without new and advanced molecular techniques.

Health warning for a nearby star
Astronomers have found large amounts of carbon monoxide around a nearby star. This gas is easily and quickly destroyed by starlight, so where did it come from and hasn't it been burned away? The only explanation is that it's being constantly delivered by comets, asteroids and small planets around the star!

Cafeteria conundrum: Can school lunches be nutritious, delicious, and affordable?
More than 5,000 high school students from across the country dedicated this past weekend to solving the problem of funding nutritious school lunches that are tasty enough for kids to eat. Participants of Moody's Mega Math Challenge used mathematically-founded insights to address concerns posed by government officials, school districts, and students. Close to 1,200 solutions were submitted for judging, which begins today.

A model for the world's rivers?
A new model can predict how river networks evolve over time, and it might help researchers understand what some landscapes looked like in the past -- or how they will look in the future. And since rivers act as both pathways and barriers for many creatures, this new model might tell researchers more about the ways that rivers affect natural ecosystems.

With a twist, researchers turn fishing line into muscles
What if the clothing you wore responded to temperature, becoming thicker on cold days and thinner on hot days? Or if the window shutters in your house opened and closed automatically to keep the temperature inside just right? That's the kind of technology that Carter Haines and colleagues show off in a new Science report.

The many faces of our night sky
Constellations are like secret agents, they take on many different names and characters as you travel around the world. For example, take Scorpius. In some countries this constellation is pictured and described as a scorpion. But what other names, animals and characteristics do these stars go by?

Real-world math competition results in tuition help for winners
Escalating tuition may deter some students from attending college, but Pew Research Center's 2014 study, "The Rising Cost of Not Going to College," shows that young adults with a degree are earning more than their peers who skipped college. This comes as good news for college students who wonder if their struggle to afford tuition is worth it, but the elephant in the room stands just as tall: can they lower their cost to attend.
