I work in a used game store and I try my best to let parents know what they're buying for their kids. Sometimes it works out great.

Science for the Masses used chlorophyll analog known as Chlorin e6 (or Ce6) to give healthy eyesight temporary night vision. This chemical is found in some deep sea fish and used to treat night-blindness. 

The group hypothesized the chemical could be dispersed into the eye and give a form of night vision.

Did it work? Yes. It started with shapes, hung about 10 meters away. "I'm talking like the size of my hand," Licina says. Before long, they were able to do longer distances, recognizing symbols and identifying moving subjects against different backgrounds.

"The other test, we had people go stand in the woods," he says. "At 50 meters, we could figure out where they were, even if they were standing up against a tree." Each time, Licina had a 100% success rate. The control group, without being dosed with Ce6, only got them right a third of the time.

In February of 2012, astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope discovered a cluster of young, blue stars in the spectacular edge-on galaxy (ESO 243-49 above), encircling the first intermediate-mass black hole ever found. The presence of the star cluster suggests that the black hole was once at the core of a now-disintegrated dwarf galaxy.
