Science Confirms That Itching Is Contagious

Scientists have confirmed that viewing somebody itch makes a person more likely to itch themselves.

Researchers at Wake Forest University had 25 volunteers watch a five minute video of a person either scratching their arm or sitting idly. As the videos played, the volunteers who were viewing the images of scratching were twice as likely to start scratching, as well. (Admit it: You totally want to scratch your arm as you're reading this.)

Our impulse to mimic the itching of others may have evolved as a way to prevent parasitic infestations from jumping from person to person, suggest the researchers.

Super Glue Inventor Harry Wesley Coover Jr. Dead at 94

Super Glue inventor Harry Wesley Coover Jr. died Saturday night of congestive heart failure at his home in Kingsport, TN, the NY Times is reporting. He was 94.

Though he held over 460 patents in his career, Coover was best known for his revolutionary invention, which he created accidentally while testing compounds at Eastman Codak's Tennessee laboratory in 1951. Seven years after the accident, during which Coover ruined a $3,000 machine, the first version of Super Glue (called Eastman 910) was made available.

Space Shuttle Discovery Launched at 4:50PM ET today

I was talking to a friend at work today about the shuttle launch.  We were reminiscing about previous launches and how this will be one of the final shuttle missions before the entire program is scrubbed.  I'm hopeful that while there's not much more to do with the current program and that taxpayer money is perhaps better spent elsewhere right now, I have to think that space exploration is 'soon' headed beyond the capabilities of current shuttles.  Mars anyone?  Read more to watch live streaming video from spaceflightnow at livestream.com
