From "Star Wars" fashions to glowing bacteria art and protests, these are the best tech photos of the week.
Bacteria artist Zachery Copfer is creating glowing bacterial art, called "bacteriographs," that you can hang in your home. The flagship piece is a glow-in-the-dark bacteriograph based on a transgenic piece of art created by Eduardo Kac, a rabbit called Alba he injected with bioluminescent genetic material to make it glow. Copfer's take is the Albasaurus, a glowing velociraptor-bunny hybrid.
Researchers have finally figured out the mystery of a Martian rock known as "Pinnacle Island" which resembles a jelly doughnut. The rock isn't some alien being or the result of a cosmic anomaly. The rock is simply a piece of a larger rock broken and moved by the wheel of NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity in early January.
This image from the panoramic camera (Pancam) on the Mars Rover shows where the rock had been before it appeared in front of the rover in early January 2014.
