It's the end of an era. No, not the 80s, those will never die. Instead today we say goodbye to the venerable 80beats news blog. Over the last five years 80beats has brought you more than 4,000 news stories. We've written about dead fish flying in wind tunnels

, why ancient Romans are partially to blame for climate change

, and how dogs can smell cancer on people's breath

. But just like the 80s never really went out, DISCOVER's daily news blog is only really getting a new haircut. One that's less mullet-shaped. From now on D-brief

will be our new home for the best science and tech stories every day. Our name change reflects what we do---give you punchy briefings on the most important news of the day, and have a little fun while we're at it. That's DISCOVER's style. We've got the latest news there right now, so go check it out

. Update your bookmarks and subscribe to the new D-brief news feed

while you're at it. We'll see you on the flip side---and we'll let MJ take us out. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRdxUFDoQe0
