Sunspots 51

Things I have recently spotted that may be of interest to someone else:

There is evidence that Saturn has thousands or millions of little moons, perhaps the size of a room.

destinatio (his Flickr user name) has posted a photo of a statue by Michelangelo, which is in front of a church in Belgium. He considered not doing so, because of the fuss over The DaVinci Code, but decided to do so, and gives his reasons.

A company is planning the first clinical trials of embryonic stem cells in human therapy, for spinal cord injuries. The cells in question come from two of the lines approved by President Bush in his speech of August 9, 2001.

For those really into such things, Michele says that Harry Potter is not a horcrux for Voldemort. (2nd post here)

More from CNET on scary new things that viruses may do.

A fossil, apparently intermediate between fish and land tetrapods, has been discovered. See here or here (second article includes a small photo.)

This week's Christian Carnival is here. (For information on locating these Carnivals, see here) The theme for this week is "March Madness." I'm glad I saw the women's NCAA basketball final, in which Maryland came back from 13 points down to beat Duke in overtime. It was a great game, and it's a shame anyone had to lose.

When I don't tell where I found an item above, I either found it directly, or was probably pointed to it by the Librarian's Internet Index, SciTech Daily, or Arts and Letters Daily. All of them are great.
