Congrats to Mas Sumbramanian and his team out at Oregon State University for the discovery! He said the following in an official OSU press release:

"It was serendipity, actually; a happy, accidental discovery.

The basic crystal structure we’re using for these pigments was known before, but no one had ever considered using it for any commercial purpose, including pigments.

Ever since the early Egyptians developed some of the first blue pigments, the pigment industry has been struggling to address problems with safety, toxicity and durability."

Neil deGrasse Tyson took to Twitter in support of the LGBTQ community just days after what many have called the deadliest mass shooting in America at an Orlando nightclub.  He found a way to communicate this touching tribute the only way he knows how, science!

Possible spoilers ahead? 

The people who created this used a "machine learning algorithm" to figure out who is most likely to die next. They go into a much deeper explanation about their initial data gathering from the books and how they use those factors to predict who's next on the website.

They've also got a ranking system to show you who you can expect to die, although these seem to be based on what the books have revealed so far so we may find out if these predictions come true when season six begins.

This is a step in the right direction toward self-driving trucks. This is part of the European Truck Platooning Challenge where trucks follow each other, connected by Wifi, to get to their destination. Unlike with human drivers, these trucks can stay much closer to each other on the road and it actually saves a lot of money in gas. 

You'll practically feel yourself absorb the knowledge packed in these neat science gifs! Okay... most of them are just cool science tricks but they might inspire you to learn more, right?

Fossils of a prehistoric creature called the Siberian Unicorn, or Elasmotherium sibiricum, have been found in the Pavlodar region of Kazakhstan.  Most depictions of this animal show it looking kind of like a cross between a rhinoceros and a donkey rather than a noble horse.

Though the Siberian Unicorn is decidedly less majestic than you might expect, this find is still pretty big news. Scientists thought that the species died out at least 350,000 years ago but that's not the case.  These new fossils place it at around 29,000 years ago according to a study published in the American Journal of Applied Sciences.
