For this week, we covered:
- Alternative fuels - We talk about how ethanol from corn is a fallacy and that ethanol from a type of grass is more efficient.
- Pluto rebellion - It seems as though people in the IAU and abroad are not taking the recent demoding of Pluto quietly. Outrage over a vote hijack and who else joined the new club.
- Ethical stem cells - New methods of producing stem cells help to get around the political and ethical dellimas associated with them.
This week, we analyze a new paper put forth by Douglas Clowe that details the new way of proving that dark matter is real and here to stay.
The image taken from the Chandra X-Ray Observatory shows two areas of dark matter (blue) independant of the matter in the colliding clusters (red).
