Although Daddyo logged the first official mention with an email time-stamped 12:21 a.m. yesterday morning, judging from my Facebook feed and inbox quite a number of you feel the rogue sunless planet drifting through the galaxies is the top science story of the week. My favorite comment on it comes from my friend Aoife Barrington-Haber, who speculated that it might be the lost Planet Who. Knowing Aoife like I do, I’m betting that’s a Seussical reference. 🙂
The story generating the most interest from The Five-Year-Old, however, is the tale of Remi and his little sister, who used the power of social media to badger their Dad into letting them adopt a cat.
So, what’s caught your eye this week?
