Scientists have built a lab on the international space station, allowing them to remotely investigate quantum phenomena in microgravity. Research Article: _ _Aveline et al.; News and Views: _ _Quantum matter orbits Earth

08:37 Research Highlights

Trackable ‘barcode’ bacteria, and physicists simulate near light speed cycling. Research Highlight: _ _‘Barcode’ microbes could help to trace goods — from lettuce to loafers; Research Highlight: _ _What Einstein’s theory means for a cyclist moving at almost light speed

10:48 Maintaining mountain height

For a long time many researchers have thought that mainly erosion controls the height of mountains, but new research suggests that tectonic forces play a bigger role. Research Article: _ _Dielforder et al.; News and Views: _ _Mountain height might be controlled by tectonic force, rather than erosion
