When I find myself too filled with rage or fatigue at politics I more and more often turn to science news for a break. Because, seriously, there's still amazingly cool stuff going on that will help shape our knowledge and understanding. I am particularly fond of new science that upsets existing dogma - feel free to share such stories with me if you know about them.

Here, for example, is a nice piece in the NY Times that talks about how not only have we found new fossils that push the earliest known homo sapiens well earlier - like 100,000 years earlier - but they arguably explode the old paradigm of a "cradle of evolution" where homo sapiens supposedly evolved and then spread.
