From National Geographic:
The science team, led by Bill Chadwick of Oregon State University, reports the volcano has been growing considerably in the last three years.
Chadwick says the volcano has expanded 131 feet in height and nearly a thousand feed in width, about as tall as a 12-story building and as wide as a city block.
NW Rota-1 is about 1,700 feet below sea level, and the pressure of the ocean keeps the energy released from the volcano from becoming too explosive, allowing the remote vehicle, Jason, to get close.

ETH Zurich researchers carried out tests to see what happens when unmodified human or mammalian genes are inserted into the moss genome. They transferred the foreign, unmodified genes into the moss and discovered that the moss was easily able to manufacture the proteins encoded therein.

But what impact does losing a job have on your health? Could a layoff send a perfectly healthy person into a downward spiral of sickness?

White blood cells, the immune system's "soldiers" for your body, actually crawl along your blood vessels to find their way to infection and injury sites, new research shows.

It turns out that we don't know everything about the universe. Shocking, we know, but you'd be surprised how often science writers, politicians, or intelligent design idiots confuse "non-omniscience" with "everything is WRONG!" Now some are saying that Newton screwed up, but at least their evidence is awesome:dwarf galaxies orbiting the Milky Way.
