Five Things - 2Astronomers have found yet another planet that seems to have the right combination for life: Not so hot and not so cold. And it’s not so far away, either.

It’s the fifth such life-possible planet outside our solar system revealed in less than a year, but still relatively nearby Earth.

Five Things - 3The last orca whale has been born in captivity at a SeaWorld in Texas, just over a year after they announced they will stop breeding orcas following animal rights protests and declining ticket sales.

The orca — the last in a generation of whales bred in confinement — was born yesterday afternoon. SeaWorld did not immediately name the calf because the park’s veterinarians had not yet determined whether it was male or female.

The mother, 25-year-old Takara, was already pregnant when SeaWorld announced last March that it had stopped breeding its orcas. The gestation period for orcas is about 18 months.

Five Things - 4A study says that running can be contagious.

“Knowing the running behaviors of your friends as shared on social networks can cause you to run farther, faster, and longer.”

The running was more contagious for men than for women, in that they ran longer distances or at a speedier pace if their male friends shared what they did. The same goes for their female friends but it wasn’t as significant. On the other hand, women apparently didn’t pay much mind to their male friends and nearly exclusively changed up their patterns only based on other women.
