A couple of news bytes...

Sci fi people might be interested in these two.

First of all, we have the god particle. No  we don't. We have the gods particles? Apparently cosmology may be more polytheistic than we thought.

Don't try to understand this unless you're the kind of geek who can get your mind around the full intricacies of modern physics. But it might be time to rewrite all the laws. Again.

The second one makes moon colonization more feasible. There's a little bit of water on the moon, right?

No, actually, there could be...quite a lot.

Not sure how much direct use either of these are, but they're definitely interesting. Now, excuse me while I go get some chocolate to deal with my cosmology headache.
