By Jimmy Rogers (@me) Contributing Writer, [GAS] Those crazy guys over at the Discovery News Friday Feedbag, a podcast that summarizes the most interesting science stories of the week, invited me to chat on the show once again.

We often refer to all cephalopods as having tentacles, but that just isn’t the case. A tentacle is a long projection with suckers only on the end; […]
Comic-Con is over, and attendees have been back to the real world for a few days. Meanwhile, we’ve had a chance to look at some of the pictures that our readers sent in, taken at the event. Here are some of our favorites! From Daniel, a stormtrooper with a new batch of hardware (and a […]
