Monkeypox is a new global threat. African scientists know what the world is facing science

As monkeypox fuels fears here-we-go-pain in a pandemic-weary world, some researchers in Africa have their own sense of déjà vu. Another neglected tropical disease of the poor attracted attention only after it began to infect people in rich countries. “It’s like your neighbor’s house is on fire and you just close your window and say …

Sleep Science: Researchers in the Northwest Pacific Explore the Secrets of a Good Night’s Rest

Early prototypes of any technology can be a little naive. Just ask Sofia Fluck, a test engineer at the Eugene Brain Electrophysiology Laboratory. She sits hunched over her desk with a small orange flat-blade screwdriver, trying to replace the electronics box lid with the size of a deck of cards. The screw swings as she …

How did life start? Abiogenesis, panspermia and the science of Prometheus

While we were smart enough to ask questions and consider our existence, we wondered where we came from. Discovering evolution through natural selection led us part of the way to the answer when he explained how life changes over time, but cannot cope with the origin of life itself. So far, the only answers we …

A new, highly reactive chemical discovered in the atmosphere

Millions of tons of highly reactive chemicals called hydrotrioxides can stay in the atmosphere for hours, a new study suggests – which could have implications for human health and global climate. Chemicals interact with other compounds extremely quickly, and their presence means that chemists will have to rethink how processes in the atmosphere work. Hydrotrioxides …
