That has been on the web for years. It is still very cool.

Science? I think that would be more of an engineering and technical achievement. He not only did a fine job making the thing but also documenting the project.

The Voyager crafts are nearly to the edge of the solar system (the Heliotrope) and have found some very interesting things.

Just the fact those two mechanisms have survived this long, gone that far, and are still transmitting data is unbelievably cool.

And that leads to more questions. What is the quickest way to sequester carbon? Iron fertilization? Though the jury is still out on if the Haida's massive experiment off the west coast of Haida Gwaii did any good. Or made that part of the ocean hypoxic.

A new colony of 9,000 penguins has been discovered in eastern Antarctica after their massive trail of poo was viewed from space.

ETA:

The meteor that hit the Ural mountains in central Russia today (February 15) had such an impact it was registered on U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)' seismometers. The meteor created a huge fireball as it tore through the atmosphere at an estimated 54,000 km/h.

The first seismometer is located near Kurchatov, Kazakhstan; the second in Borovoye, Kazakhstan; and the third is part of the ZAA0 array (Zalesovo), located in the Altayskiy Kray region of Russia.

At least 950 people have been injured, as the shockwave blew out windows and rocked buildings. Most of those hurt were in the Chelyabinsk region where the meteor fell.

There are videos of the meteor here: http://slate.me/X8Ogu7
