Methane's concentration in the atmosphere might be outweighed and outlasted by the more bountiful CO2, but this greenhouse gas is perfectly capable of doing some damage while it's up there. Due to its superior radiation-trapping abilities, methane presents a much more potent threat to the climate than CO2 does pound-for-pound, so monitoring the source of methane emissions is therefore pretty important. And it looks like we might have a new tool at our disposal, with NASA announcing the first observation of a single methane leak on our planet's surface from an Earth-orbiting spacecraft.

The immersion that virtual reality provides is one of its best selling points – and biggest drawbacks. Motion sickness is a common side effect of VR, where the brain has trouble reconciling the movement the eyes are seeing with the lack of motion the body is feeling. It's a problem that many are working to address, including teams from Microsoft and Stanford University. Now researchers at Columbia University have developed a new approach that involves masking the player's view to minimize the symptoms.
