Biodiesel is an excellent source of fuel: not only does it come from renewable sources , but it also burns cleaner, producing less pollution than fossil fuels . But it can be expensive to produce. That is set to change, however, as South Korean researchers recently developed a new way to source fuel from sewage sludge at a fraction of the cost of regular sources.

An engineer from the University of Miami has received $100,000 from NASA for his fuel-efficient supersonic aircraft. Working with a team from Florida State University, Ge-Chen Zha has designed a bi-directional flying wing (SBiDir-FW) that not only looks like a ninja’s morning star, but can travel at supersonic speeds without the sonic boom generated by conventional aircraft when they break the sound barrier. This remarkable jet could potentially travel from New York to Tokyo in four hours. Read the rest of NASA Provides $100,000 Funding For Super-Sonic, Fuel-Efficient Ninja-Star Jet!

Barred owl photo by Glenn Tepke for Audubon Society It’s time for the 110th Christmas Bird Count , the annual holiday tradition when tens of thousands of volunteers, from Alaska to Antarctica, look and listen for birds, counting populations for researchers. The National Audubon Society organizes the CBC, tracking species from mid-December to January 5 for the season’s yearly bird census.
