Editor’s Selections: Low-Metal Stars, Black Holes/No Hair, Fruitfly Sex and Water World

Editor's Selections 5 Comments
By Sarah Kendrew

Sarah Kendrew Sarah Kendrew selects interesting and notable ResearchBlogging.org posts in the physical sciences, chemistry, engineering, computer science, geosciences and mathematics. She blogs about astronomy at One Small Step.

Quite an astro-themed set of picks this week!

On her blog accompanying the excellent Jodcast astronomy podcast series, Megan reports on the exciting discovery of a peculiar star that is likely to be extremely old, perhaps primordial in nature.

Making black hole physics understandable is a big challenge. On Smaller Questions, Sarah Scoles does a great job explaining the no-hair theorem for these exotic objects, and how we may be able to test it from here on Earth.

Crazy sex stories, on the other hand, never get old – not even when it’s fruitfly sex. I enjoyed Elizabeth Preston’s post on research into aphrodisiac smells for the male fruitfly.

Finally, to mark World Food Day yesterday, M Garcia wrote this in-depth and interesting post looking at current issues in food and water security around the world.

I hope you all have a great week, and I’ll be back next Monday with more selections.
