Summary

In science news around the world, researchers narrow the destination of NASA's next Mars rover to eight sites, Fermilab's neutrino experiment collects its first data, the widening of the Suez Canal draws concerns over a potential increase in invasive species in the Mediterranean Sea, a legal dispute between two California universities over data from an Alzheimer's study heats up, and more. Also, the head of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Robert Tjian, has announced he will step down next year. And the five winners of a contest to create a new science-driven and female-led TV show, dubbed the "next MacGyver," include concepts in genres including spy thriller, historical fiction, and high school comedy.
