Happy President’s Day, to those of you who got a day off! Our boss scheduled a meeting today, in spite of the holiday, so Lucy K. and I were busy slaving in the lab. In celebration of the holiday, some light science fare today.
Did you know…

…that a famous actor is going to restart the Large Hadron Collider?
…that supersized calories are in our kitchens, not just at McDonald’s?
…that a green comet is passing by next week?
