    Why Do Children Ask, 'Why?'
    Have you ever wondered why children ask "why" so often? Even as adults, we question the "why" of many things not in our control. For children, "why" questions help them make sense of the world around them that they are just beginning to learn about. These "why" questions also help spur and accelerate learning.

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.

"The difference between normal light and what the researchers created is actually best illustrated by the example of a lightsaber like those in the Star Wars universe." http://cnet.co/2o9bFyy

    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.

Copernicus’ research, which established that the Earth and the other known planets revolve around the sun, was revolutionary when it was published in 1543 and has since become fundamental to our understanding of the universe and our place in it.
