Best birds to spot this Spring

There’s no secret that spring is peak birdwatching season due to how many species are breeding. With spring comes the arrival of numerous bird species known as the neotropical migrants — a species that returns back to the continental United States to breed after spending the winter months in Central or South America.

Wisconsin scientists talk ties with Mars rover endeavor

In 1976, the United States-operated Viking 1 landed on Mars, marking the world’s first successful landing of a spacecraft on the Red Planet. Once it became clear that attempts to land spacecraft directly on the surface of Mars were feasible, pursuits of surface-level exploration began to come together at a fever pitch.

 Students are no strangers to emerging social media trends – as avid smartphone users, young adults are likely to pick up on new dating apps, new mobile payment apps (e.g. Venmo, Cashapp) and even new social media platforms. However, students may be unaware of a different kind of social platform that took hold in 2018 – a platform that touts its commitment to free speech and open dialogs for radical discussions.

Neutrinos: the nanoscopic messengers from space

One of the most prevalent particles in the universe is also one of the most difficult to detect. Neutrinos can travel billions of light years—or even from the beginning of time itself—unimpeded by any of the matter they come into contact with.
