This week, we’ll cover a swath of new science stories: What happens when supernova swallow up stars, and what enables us to watch this process evolve in real time? How are Americans’ opinions on gene editing evolving? Is baldness over?
In other news:
- Audio levitation is on its way, with engineers at the University of Bristol producing 3D-printed speakers that make small objects float (see right).
- Researchers have confirmed that regal jumping spiders can occasionally devour lizards and frogs, chiefly by scouring Google and other online sources for evidence.
