Sunspots 352

Things I have recently spotted that may be of interest to someone else:
Science: Wired reports on a study of the number of generations it would take to evolve from the size of a mouse to that of an elephant. (A lot.)

Speaking of rates of evolution, the New York Times reports on a virus that changes very rapidly, and how dangerous this can be.

I learned something I didn't know, or had forgotten, namely that some spores (which are microscopic) have elaters attached to them. See here and here for some great photos.
