It's National CSA Week, the most popular time of year for fans of local food to join a CSA, support a local farm, and begin the wait for all that great local produce. Rambling Roots Farm and Z Food Farm both still have spots available to join their CSAs, and learn more about Tooth of Lion's herbal apothecary CSA and their flower CSA. So many ways to support local farms!

    NASA's Opportunity rover surpasses 5,000 Martian days on the Red Planet
    On Saturday, NASA's Opportunity rover celebrated a monumental anniversary all by itself on the surface of the Red Planet: surviving 5,000 Martian days. It's an incredibly significant milestone for the little-wheeled robot, given the fact that it was only expected to last just 90 days.

Ever wonder why it is that so many storms seem to follow the route of Interstate 95? http://theatln.tc/2ohAjNG

    Why Storms Seem to Follow I-95
    The cities and roads are where they are because of what the Fall Line is: a more or less invisible, small, underground cliff-an escarpment-that marks the old edge of the continent. On the Fall Line's west side, the high side, are tough crystalline rocks; on the east side, the low side, are soft, easily moveable sediments.

What can you learn from the brain of a genius?

    Who Stole Einstein's Brain?
    Einstein's brain has been on a bit of a journey, and most people aren't aware of it. There's a lot of debate as to whether or not the late, famed intellect had a unique brain structure, but few would argue that the story that began following his demise is anything other than a cloak-and-dagger thriller.

    Science takes a step toward real-life lightsabers
    Researchers from MIT and Harvard in 2013 managed to get photons, which are basically particles of light, to play nice with each other and create a new state of matter. Harnessing such a breakthrough could lead to actual quantum leaps in computing and perhaps even give us a real-world lightsaber.
