Tracking Stations are getting signals that appear to be from Cosmos 1.

Well, neat. It'd be nice if it somehow survived, even if it's in the wrong orbit.

Hell, if it got into a stable orbit that could be tracked and communicated with, maybe the experiment can still be attempted.

Common virus kills cancer cells, leaves regular cells unharmed.

This is really, really exciting. It's also why I occasionally envy people in biology right now - we're really finally starting to figure out a lot of the tools we've had in our bodies since the beginning, we just didn't know how or why to use them.

Prediction: By 2015, we will see an AAV-2 based treatment for most, if not all, forms of cancer. It will be as regular and accepted as treating a nasty infection or performing drug therapy.
