Sunspots 234

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

In case you didn't know it, many human DNA sequences are patented, in spite of the fact that we've all got them, or have something much like the patented sequence. Wired says that a federal judge has allowed a lawsuit that would undo such patents to proceed.

Olivia Judson doesn't think that science is, or should be taught as, facts, facts, facts. There's a lot we don't know, and we know less all the time.

The BBC has posted a video of the courtship dance of the weedy sea dragon, a type of seahorse.

(more or less) Wired has posted some fantastic photos of islands, taken from satellites.
