An enigmatic X-ray source revealed as part of a data-mining project for high-school students shows unexplored avenues hidden in the vast archive of ESA's XMM-Newton X-ray Observatory.  There's nothing quite like an ice cream on a hot day, and eating it before it melts too much is part of the fun.  Studying the fleeting actions of electrons in organic materials will now be much easier, thanks to a new method for generating fast X-rays.  In a laboratory at the University of Rochester, researchers are using lasers to change the surface of metals in incredible ways, such as making them super water-repellent without the use of special coatings, paints, or solvents.
