...a discovery that sheds new light on why younger people are more creative. This adds to evidence that young animals are born with circuitry to make them explore the possibilities of their vocal apparatus and to make sense of the world. This idea that there are circuits in the brain that drive exploration is also exciting

Molecules can come in left and right handed forms and one puzzle is that most life on Earth contains left handed amino acids. These amino acids "seeds" formed in interstellar space, possibly on asteroids as they careened through space. "This work is related to the probability that there is life somewhere else,"
