Aside from light sabers, controversial striped dresses and Miss Universe mishaps there were lots of big science related headlines this year. 2015 was an innovative year for the science community and we could not close out the year without sharing some of our favorite science moments.
There are a lot of challenges in going to other planets. One of the biggest issues is how to get people back from other places to Earth. A new rocket test by SpaceX just became a huge game changer in that conversation by helping answer today's question - how can we visit other planets?
As our technological progress moves ahead, we see more and more "smart" devices. Phones, cars, and tables have all been made more high tech in the past few years. The same has happened in the medical field, ranging from big complex processes to small household items, like band-aids. What is a smart band-aid?
