• Earthquakes not only move us, they move islands too. (More news for Joe Barton.)

• So yeah, the 40th anniversary of the moon landing happened. But what human achievements will top it? Here’s 5 ideas.

• Cool tech video of the day: a Canon 5D shutter in slooow motion.

• Looking to hit the beach in Texas? Beware the basketball-sized blobs of oil.

• Also, we are official fans of this blog. As should be anyone who cares about science.
