New Feature Alert -- Ask DiscoveryNews

Have a burning question you want answered or something that you want explained?

You can ask DiscoveryNews at

Our writers and editors are here to help you (and us) understand the day’s news and events. So, does one aspect of a breaking news story pique your interest? Do you want to know where zombies come from, or why people shoot to kill rather than shoot to just maim? Or how to photograph today’s Transit of Venus? We do, too.

So, ask away. We will go through your questions and requests and try to help us all understand.
