Default Which Discover magazine article is the fake?

I'm not saying for certain that they did it this year, but I'm pretty sure Discover magazine puts in an April Fool's story in every April issue since a few years back.

So which article(probably one of the short ones at the beginning of the magazine) do you guys think it is?

Perhaps you should start by saying which one you think it is?

Haven't seen the issue yet, but here's a link to some other April Fools-type Science that you may enjoy:
