Science round-up

It looks as though Saturn’s most famous moon may contain valuable resources. It’s a long way off, of course, but such discoveries could fuel further space exploration.

And speaking of a long way off….

A solar system not unlike ours has been identified about 5000 light-years away.

Closer to home, fossils suggest that bats developed flight before echolocation, while oceanic data bolsters the claim that homo sapiens developed intelligence before wisdom.
