Installments of Interesting Stuff will be shorter this year, as I can’t keep spending as much time on it. I will be sticking mostly to blogs for my material and not trawling through PhysOrg etc as I did last year.
Here are some recent articles, most of which were published while I was on holiday.
- Two articles about the colours of dinosaur feathers [1, 2].
- Neuroscience of comedy.
- Small, ground-based telescopes are now capable of analysing exoplanet atmospheres.
- Clean smells and dark sunglasses influence moral behaviour.
- The January 11 episode of 365 Days of Astronomy is my favourite so far this year.
