Disclaimer:I am an Amateur when it comes to Science. I post these to peak people's interest. I try to find credible sources as best I can. I share these because it peaks my Interest and I hope it stirs yours too. I am not in Real Life a Scientist nor do I think what I find is everything. I just try to share enough so if interested you, yourself can find out more.

I format it by putting in a bit of the Article then a link to the source so you can read more.Some are recent some are earlier in the year or before.So Here is the news:
