Okay, here’s what not to do if you fancy doing some home-grown physics experiments: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-14406766

Most people would decide to play with magnets or build a model solar system… but this Swedish dude thought it would be a good idea to split the atom in his kitchen!! Not only that but he was dumb enough to ask the authorities if what he was doing was legal… erm, yes? Kudos to the guy though; he obviously has balls. But the nuclear material would likely make them sterile pretty quickly I would imagine…

In other news, scientists have apparently found water on Mars!! Sounds exciting, and will hopefully prove accurate. No doubt we will have far fetched dreams of rivers running freely there before long, but let’s not jump the gun on this one. It could just be god taking a piss down one of the Martian mountainsides…
