Morning Roundup: Don’t Worry. E. Coli Can’t Climb Stairs

Fear for your life! Or at least your intestines! Whovian Who-ligan created this Dalek out of E. Coli in a petri dish—because making a salmonella Cyberman would just be silly. The Doctor has inspired some pretty extraordinary fan art before, but this is the first time we’ve seen anyone sculpt bacteria.

The rest of today’s Morning Roundup is (as far as we know) completely pathogen-free, but is simply teeming with Star Wars, Harry Potter, and even a little Guillermo del Toro!  


Stubby the Rocket is the mascot of Tor.com. Stubby had a lot of really dark headlines to go with the E. coli Dalek but is being nice this month on the advice of its sponsor.
