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.

Russian scientists completed their drilling through the Antarctic ice to ancient Lake Vostok earlier this month. On Milchstraße, Olga discusses this adventurous project and its implications for science.

On an entirely different scale, scientists in Switzerland produced the first images of the charge distribution in a single molecule. This amazing work is described in detail this week by the unastronomer.

I’d never heard of the fearsome grasshopper mice, but Laelaps’ post on these weird creatures had me hooked.

Thanks for the great posts, and I’ll be back next week with more highlights.
