try www . newscientist . net for a size - make a free member and read the most in depth going article (for laymen) on the internet. (If you're a free-member you can read new articles for 20-25 days.)
Or http:// phys . org - not as orginized, but also ok.

Both sites have different sections like weopon tech, space tech, brain, nano, drugs etc. etc. (But NewScientist has the best comment section, with relatively good retoric and often intelligent discussions)

(and the first one is older than 1 week fyi)

I think everyone would be quite happy if these 'This Week in Science' posts became a weekly FJ tradition of sorts.

Except for the fact that nothing is cited. Yeah, let's blindly believe these 'facts' that we're told.

Wow. That sounds awfully familiar to FJ's old enemy, the banana.

It wouldn't be so bad if they linked to reputable sources that proved the facts to be correct.
As it is now, it's just blindly believing in something.
And that's religion.

Not everywhere on google is a reliable source.
Plus, you could quite as easily say that at the end of an essay, but it still doesn't prove anything, if you want people to believe you critically, then provide citation.

but then this just becomes useless facts - if there's sources to the 'original' material/articles, or more than just a headline, then it'd be more knowledge per se.
If I don't get a job soon (this week), I might aswell do one my self

I'd enjoy that, mostly because it would mean a faster advancement in scientific fields, but he's gonna run out of **** to post, because such studies usually take more than a week.

Advancements are happening all the time, and even if they're not particularly important they can still be fascinating. A few weeks ago I mentioned to my chemistry class that it was discovered that a particular mixture of acids would etch crystalline patterns into a sheet of copper heated to exactly 250 C. Though this isn't a very practical or major discovery, it was enough to provide us with 2 full hour's quite vivid discussion.

Cells are quadruple helixed?

I think they found that cancer cells have quadruple helixed DNA strands only, and that it may greatly help the detection of early cancer cells. Praphrasing from SciShow on youtube, so I might've gotten some details wrong.

A minute tractor beam... everyone knows things that start minute can turn into big **** (televisions for example)

Thanks to your comment I realized OP was not talking about a measure of time when he said minute.

The way the word is pronounced is "My Newt", it just means that something's small or insignificant, if you didn't catch on already. I know the pronunciation always baffled me when I first heard the word.

The tractor beam is called a Bessel beam, however it can't simply be upsized (It is, after all, just photons acting in a certain way). But I'm sure we'll get there eventually.

So far, the tractor beam can only tug on polystyrene particles in water. Also, because of the mechanism by which it operates, if you were to scale it up for use on macroscopic objects, the intensity of the laser would vaporize the target.   
   
Still, it's a step in the right direction and should be taken as nothing but good news.
