Just landed - Galileo, a vatting of different styles of Ardbeg put to rest in 1999, is a combination of spirits that have been matured in ex-Marsala wine casks or in ex-bourbon casks. Together they create a sweet, smokey whiskey. The few thousand cases of the 12 year old whiskey made available are being picked up quickly and the space experiment that it was named after is going strong. Invited by US Space Research Company, NanoRacks LLC, Ardbeg has been taking place in an experiment to test micro organic compounds in a maturation experiment since 2011. Perfect for your New Year’s Eve party!

Researchers examine newly released photos of Einstein’s brain to understand what physical features might have been behind his genius. 
After Einstein’s death, pathologist Thomas Harvey removed his brain, preserved it in formalin, and took dozens of black-and-white photos of it before cutting it up into 240 blocks. He then took tissue samples from each block, mounted them onto microscope slides, and distributed the slides to some of the world’s best neuropathologists.
And still, as Einstein himself might have agreed, there’s more to “Truth and Beauty” than biology and wiring.

As Einstein believed, there’s more to “Truth and Beauty” than biology and wiring.

NASA’s curiosity rover has pulled off a few firsts over the last day that make Michael Phelp’s Olympic accomplishments seem just a little less amazing. Landing on Mars: cool Tweeting from Mars: AMAZING!
 Follow along as the rover goes where no man or robot has gone before @MarsCuriosity. Catch up with some of the tweeted gems from and to Curiosity over at Mashable.
