Opportunities and job potential fuel support of science, tech, and math education
Recent bipartisan support for math and science research in the US should be encouraging news for the country's younger generation. Students who show their support of and enthusiasm for STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) by choosing majors and careers in these areas should be especially pleased to hear of these discussions in Congress. Programs like Moody's Mega Math Challenge, a competition for high schoolers, remind us that America's youth can be passionate about STEM.

Cosmic dragon breathes new life into the night sky
The distances between stars are so immense that we can't use miles or kilometers to measure them, the numbers would become too large. So, for distances in space we use a different measurement: the time taken for a light beam to travel. But why light, and how do we measure it?

Special offer: 2 galaxies for the price of 1
Last week, the surprise for astronomers was that a single galaxy, which has been observed many times, turned out to be two separate galaxies! The pair seen in this picture are lined-up almost perfectly on the sky, which had tricked astronomers for years. Looks like even the smartest among us aren't foolproof!

Icy detective discovers extraterrestrial particles
Sensors buried below the ice may help scientists figure out where the high-energy rays that speed through space are born, a new study reports. And this is exciting as the origin of these rays, known as cosmic rays, has long been mysterious -- because cosmic rays are hard to track.
