Spacewalking astronauts turn cable guys
Spacewalking astronauts have routed more than 300 feet of cable outside the International Space Station, tricky and tiring advance work for the arrival of new American-made crew capsules. It was the first of three spacewalks planned for NASA astronauts Butch Wilmore and Terr...

How to build the perfect snowman
Without magical ice princess powers, building the perfect snowman can be a serious challenge. Often people's efforts turn out a little lumpy or lopsided and quickly melt into unrecognizable shapes. If you do decide to build one, it helps to have science on your side. Underst...

Monkey is top dog among animal actors
A monkey who's starred in 25 movies over two decades was top dog at the sixth annual Pawscars, the animal version of the Oscars. Waving a statue over her head in triumph, a beaming Crystal accepted the "lifetime diva achievement award" looking every bit the part in a pink, floor-le...

Would you eat soup made from crickets?
Bugs in a gourmet kitchen are usually something to be squashed or swatted. But at Le Cordon Bleu, the esteemed French cooking school, chefs and food scientists spent a week simmering, sauteing and grilling insects to extract innovative flavors they say could open a new gastronomic ...

NASCAR coming to a school near you – maybe yours!
It takes a lot of geometry and physics to get a race car to go 200 laps at speeds that can top 200 mph. In a nod to the often overlooked science behind races like the Daytona 500, NASCAR is announcing a years-long commitment to promote "STEM" — the buzzword for science, te...

Should pets be allowed to travel on trains?
It all began with Lily, a 15-pound snowball of a French bulldog with the face of a tough guy and the personality of a princess. She and her owner, Rep. Jeff Denham of California, take the occasional coast-to-coast plane ride together. But when he tried to take her on Amtrak ...
