Friday Coffee Break

Every Friday at Nothing in Biology Makes Sense! our contributors pass around links to new scientific results, or science-y news, or videos of adorable wildlife, that they’re most likely to bring up while waiting in line for a latte.


From Noah: Is there anything more terrifying than incurable gonorrhea? The WHO thinks not.

From CJ: For “mathletes” and the mathless alike – a great cartoon about fractals.

Also from CJ: Science fiction to science fact in one handy chart.

From Jeremy: Robot chicken houses – the future of meat?

From Sarah:  So I guess that’s what Mars looks like…

Also from Sarah: The critical role viruses play 20,000 leagues under the sea (or however many leagues it is to the bottom).
