Science Bulletins: Asteroid Provides Pre-Planet Clues
Astronomers from the University of California, Berkeley and the Institut de Mécanique Céleste et de Calculs des Éphémérides (IMCCE) in France, recently captured the best view yet of the dog-bone-shaped asteroid Kleopatra. Using the Keck II telescope and a technology known as adaptive optics, which reduces the distortion of light by Earth's atmosphere, the researchers were able to resolve Kleopatra's two small moons—a rare find among asteroids that can provide clues to planet formation.

Science Bulletins: Suburban Growth Stresses Streams
Ecologists have established a long-term study of streams that flow through urban, suburban, rural, and forested areas of western North Carolina. Their goal is to observe how water quality and different species—from algae to insects to fish—change when roads and buildings are constructed near streams. The work will also enable scientists to forecast how streams in forested areas respond as new development encroaches. Such predictions could help inform land-use decisions by public and private
