Donald discovered this notable piece over at Yahoo!. From the article:

This undated photo released by NASA shows the connecting point in a fuel line, labeled and circled by NASA, which had been leaking on space shuttle Discovery’s right-side orbiter maneuvering system engine. NASA said Wednesday, Oct. 20, 2010 that it will empty Discovery's on-board fuel tanks, then replace two seals in the line that had been leaking. The job at the launch pad will take the rest of this week. If all goes well, the shuttle will remain on track for a Nov. 1 liftoff to the International Space Station. (AP Photo/NASA)AP - NASA has cleared space shuttle Discovery for one last flight after fixing a leaky fuel line.

George contributes this notable story written over at Scientific American. The article reads:

If 50 is the new 40 and 60 is the new 50, what’s the new 70? Well, it seems safe to at least say that 70 isn’t what it used to be. And that’s good. Because a new study finds that 70-year-olds did better on intelligence tests than 70 year olds used to do. In Sweden, anyway. The research was published in the journal Neurology . [Simona Sacuiu et al, Secular changes in cognitive predictors of dementia and mortality in 70-year-olds ]

The study compared a group of people born in 1901 and 1902 and tested in 1971 with another group born in 1930 and tested in 2000. And the newer crop of 70 years old performed far better than the previous generation did.
