- Geologic Wonder: See the Grand Canyon from Space
Helicopter tours of the Grand Canyon can provide a bird's-eye view of the iconic landmark. But that's nothing compared to what astronauts see as they zip over northern Arizona in the International Space Station. In a new image taken from orbit, the Grand Canyon is visible slicing through the Kaibab Plateau, which is part of the expansive Colorado Plateau of Arizona, Utah, Colorado and New Mexico.

But Rev. David Buck, 65, of St. Alban's Episcopal Church says the statue is a good lesson for those used to seeing Jesus depicted in religious art as a figure cloaked in finery. "He was, in essence, a homeless person." Sculptor Timothy Schmalz, a devout Catholic, says the sculpture is meant to challenge people.
- Researchers launch new app for overcoming jet lag
Based on research from mathematicians at the University of Michigan, Entrain is designed for travelers, night-shift workers and anyone else whose circadian rhythms have been thrown out of whack. To help those struggling with jet lag, researchers have created Entrain. The free app, designed by Olivia Walch, is based on equations developed by Danniel B.

The two mathematicians published their findings on how math can reduce the time it takes to get over jet lag in the April 10 issue of PLOS Computational Biology.
