Friday adorableness overload: Itty bitty baby pandas

We began this week celebrating Robert Edwards, who received a 2010 Nobel Prize for developing in vitro fertilization, and the 4 million babies born out of that procedure. Why not wrap up the week with cheers for the twin pandas who were also conceived with a little help from science?

The one-month old newborns made their media debut at the Madrid Zoo yesterday. They are the first pandas bred by artificial insemination to be born outside of Asia. More than just cute, the cubs are considered an important addition to the conservation movement, a zoo official said.

Awwww a little over these photos and then check out the video for bit more panda love.
