Get your texting fingers ready, five new science emojis are on the way. A lab coat, microbe, test tube, petri dish and DNA are among 157 new emojis that include superheroes, supervillains, a bar of soap, a bagel and a peacock. In the slim category of science emojis, the new symbols join an existing microscope, telescope, satellite dish and an alembic. Emojipedia jumped right on the announcement by mocking up what the new emojis might look like, though some complain that its double helix of DNA seems to be twisting the wrong way. The official versions will launch later this year.
