This Week in Science: June 8-14

It’s that time of the week again! What did I find interesting this week?

The International Institute for Species Exploration at Arizona State University picked the top 10 new species for 2013, and SciShow did a video about it.

Kyle Hill and Brian Switek both wrote about how the love of science doesn’t negate the wonder of nature.

Joe Hanson wrote about supercell storms, which look surprisingly like UFOs.

The Supreme Court ruled that you can’t patent genes. What does that mean for the future?

What can gems tell us about the history of the Earth?

According to xkcd, the last Ice Age wasn’t messing around!

Space Oddity, in space. Here are some more videos from space.

Any picture of the Milky Way with a ‘you are here’ arrow is wrong.

Bill Nye and the Origin of Everything.

I recommend following Neil deGrasse Tyson on Twitter.
