Bacteria that eats plastic, T-rex evolved from the size of a horse, your parents’ diet before you were born could make you fat, a huge black hole spins super fast, and massive stars are really big.
Is this the antibacterial apocalypse? Some bacteria is now resistant to even our last-resort antibiotics.

And the genome of the tardigrade gets sequenced, and there’s a lot of foreign DNA in there.
The Nobel Prizes for 2014, a Central Park blitz, inheriting traits from mum’s ex, and artificial penises grown in a lab.
Mississippi Baby not actually cured of HIV, smallpox found in a storeroom, and epigenetics in mice. Plus the woman who grew nasal tissue on her back, insecticides not just killing bees, and how pandas survive on a bamboo diet.
Mice that inherit memories, crowdfunding, comet ISON and the oldest human DNA. Plus male contraceptives, and China sends a rover to the moon.
