28-Mar-2013 Termites behind desert 'fairy circles' A new study uncovers the origin of fairy circles, circular patches of perennial grasses with a barren center that grow in the desert on the southwest coast of Africa. The research appears in the March 29, 2013, issue of the journal Science.
Yah, I know some of us are winding down from schooling for the summer months, but I can’t help but stay on the lookout for resources I know I’m going to be needing again all too soon. I’ve come across some interesting science things of late that I want to check out – perhaps you, too, can find something useful. For your perusal:
Free online courses are offered by real schools. Learn which courses are available, what topics they cover and which ones lead to real college credit. All of the schools listed below are well-known universities with a variety of free online course offerings. Most of these courses - often called OpenCourseWare (OCW) - are not awarded academic credit. Course materials can be accessed at any time, no grades are involved and the coursework is self-directed.
Water, good ol' H 2 O, seems like a pretty simple substance to you and me. But in reality, water - the foundation of life and most common of liquid - is really weird and scientists actually don't completely understand how water works.

Thursday 17th January, 2008 A high quality education doesn't have to come at a high cost. In fact, it's possible to take classes from big names like Yale, MIT, and Tufts without ever submitting an application or paying a cent in tuition. We've compiled 200 online classes from these and other respected institutions, and you can take all of them with no strings attached.
