There was an amazing story about the discovery of the largest ever colossal squid. This guy weights half a ton and is 32 feet in length and has eyes the size of a soccer ball.
The story is based on some soft tissue of a Tyronossaus Rex found somewhere in the USA, which now confirms that the humble chicken is a descendent of th Tyr. Apparently this was long suspected as the gait of these two critters was similar and the body shape.
The important science today in my field is the results from DAMA the dark matter collaboration. They say that they have a signal of dark matter.
