The usual explanation for fracturing of rocks is that water seeps into cracks or crevices and freezes and as it freezes it expands to create pressure to break the rocks.
A new method for estimating the onset of a new solar cycle by investigating the relation between descending and acending phase durations was developed by Z. Du at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing.
It was logical to conclude that the explosions of supernovae in space would spread dust (mainly as carbon and silicate particles) but astronomers had not seen enough dust around supernovae to support this idea.

 Pharyngula: Old spiders
Religious credulity and the recent spate of godly 'science'
Two short articles in this week's Science link the orb-weaving spiders back to a common ancestor in the Early Cretaceous, with both physical and molecular evidence.
What we have is a 110-million-year-old piece of amber that preserves a piece of an orb web and some captured prey, and a new comparative study of spider silk proteins that ties together the two orb-weaving lineages, the Araneoidea and the Deinopoidea, and dates their last common ancestor to 136 million years ago.

 NRDC: Environmental stories from news sources around the country and the world
Critics of the project and federal officials have been wrangling for more than two decades over whether to construct the huge nuclear waste dump in Nevada.
President Bush, who pledged in his first presidential campaign to proceed with the project only if it was based on "sound science," approved it in early 2002.
Nevada's governor utilized a provision of the federal law to veto the project, but Congress overrode that veto and authorized the project in the summer of 2002.

 Superconducting nanowires pulse to a new beat (June 2005) - News - PhysicsWeb
Physicists in the US have made a quantum interference device by coating a pair of DNA molecules with superconducting material.
The resulting two-nanowire device also showed unusual resistance oscillations in an applied magnetic field (Science 308 1762).
Alexey Bezryadin and colleagues at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign made the devices by arranging two DNA molecules across a trench about 100 nm wide that had been etched into silicon nitride and silicon dioxide layers on a silicon chip.
