ResearchBlogging editor’s selections: mega-rings, nano-anglerfish, and resilient algae

  • New mega ring around Saturn discovered using Spitzer. The big news in astronomy this week is the discovery of a BIG, hidden ring around Saturn! Dave at Exploding Galaxies and other Catastrophysics gives us the details.
  • Nano Anglerfish Snag Orphan Enzymes. Keith at Omics! Omics! describes a new approach for studying enzyme activities using nanotechnology — and does so by making an analogy with anglerfish!
  • Algae bounced back after a knock. How can we tell what really killed the dinosaurs? Thomas at Thomas’ Plant-Related Blog describes one important clue: the recovery of algae in the immediate years following the event.

Check back next Monday for more “miscellaneous” highlights!
