Countdown: Top Five Stories Of The Week On HuffPost Science

HuffPost Live Host/Producer Alyona Minkovski challenged me to countdown the top five science stories of the week in less than thirty seconds. Needless to say, I failed miserably. Watch above! Laugh! Learn! SCIENCE!!

Keep in mind, I left the recent NASA discoveries of possible organics on Mars and Voyager's trip to the newly dubbed "magnetic highway" off my list, since I'd previously discussed them on HuffPost Live (see the video below).

Sound off in the comments section below, and as always, talk nerdy to me!
