DNA photographed for the 1st time using an electron microscope. It is truly amazing that this holds everything that we are. There are more pics on the link, BTW.

A spider that builds elaborate, fake spiders and hangs them in its web has been discovered in the Peruvian Amazon.    Believed to be a new species in the genus Cyclosa, the arachnid crafts the larger spider from leaves, debris and dead insects. Though Cyclosa includes other sculpting arachnids, this is the first one observed to build a replica with multiple, spidery legs.

Illustration of behavioral task and prefrontal cortical recording localization. (F) Dimensionally relevant illustration of the conformal MEA positioned for simultaneous recording from neurons in both layers in adjacent minicolumns (1 and 2), each minicolumn consisting of a 'pair' of L2/3 and L5 PFC cells.

I like her idea about starting each day with a current event in science. she also provides a list of resources that have interesting current events.
