We're all about the future here at PopSci; we put the pieces together and deliver the news and nuggets you need to know to stay on top of where this world (and universe, and beyond) is headed. This week, the future's looking like quite the wild party--water from space, libidinous rats, and transforming UAVs. What's not to love?
(Get the details, and win the t-shirt, after the jump).
It turns out humans have likely been drinking water from outer space (and now we know what'd happen if we were to eat a teaspoon-full of White Dwarf Star). The Vatican, meanwhile, has pondered the existence of alien life, and the British army has revealed plans for a new generation of unmanned vehicles. Last but not least (and perhaps most promising), a new breed of mice has been shown to retain excellent hearing, as well as sex lives, in old age (just like Hef!).
Love our graphic? Win this t-shirt!
Leave a comment (any comment) to put your name in the pile; we'll randomly choose and announce our winner right here next Friday, November 20. And, if you just can't wait that long, you can buy the shirt for yourself here. Good Luck!
Congratulations to last week's winner, PopSci user "znichols."
Until next time. Enjoy our past weekly illustrated roundups here.

Did anyone notice Stan Lee in the back left corner. I'm just gonna say it...."media whore"
Didn't Asimov write a short story dealing with something similar to the Vatican's take on E.T. life? Complete with a Jesuit grappling with his faith when he finds out something particularly striking about a supernova?
WooHoo! Shirt me please!
Thats a pretty cool shirt i think that it might just look okay on me
I'd surely like to know what the Vatican's take is on whatever the aliens want from us and why they keep coming here all the time.
I guess I wouldn't mind getting a free tshirt
