Old-ish news. But pretty cool.
NASA released a pretty massive report (PDF) with news article on science experiments at the International Space Station. From inane-sounding and yet basic research like ‘In space soldering‘ to topics that garner a universal response of ‘eh?’ like ‘Molecular and Plant Physiological Analyses of the Microgravity Effects on Multigeneration Studies
of Arabidopsis thaliana’, its a pretty varied and interesting list. The report itself is a mighty fine read, if you can wrap your brain around the intentionally dull style.
