FIRST: The blob­fish!!

SECOND: Voy­ager 1 made it to the outer galaxy on August 25th! We’re just finding out about it today because a) it took so long for the data to make it all the way back to earth, and b) research embargoes.

THIRD: As of today, Richard Feynman’s Lec­tures on Physics are now avail­able to all, free online! Just in time for some light weekend reading.

FOURTH: Nature’s first known nat­ural gears help this little bugger walk!
