You hear people panicking about climate change. But what about direct heating? Even if there was no climate change, our energy use still matters depending on how many people live on the planet.
Scientists are using computer programs to understand our early beginnings. Click on the link to see how they are doing…
Does giving a placebo require lying to a patient? This study concludes...no! Placebos still work even when the patient knows, at least for emotional distress.

This article explores incentives for projects spanning millennia, and determines which of those incentives would provide the most successful approach.
Space flight is known to cause blurry vision in astronauts. Swelling of the brain tissue may be the reason, according to a study using MRIs.
Students inspired to study science by participating in real NASA missions In Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, a group of scientists and teachers came together to create an exciting new educational resource, named Ad Astra Academy. The goal? To develop brief, intense programs to help encourage academically at-risk students to develop critical thinking skills.
Can teachers get students in underrepresented, disadvantaged communities to feel excited about science if they get to participate in real NASA missions? Turns out, probably! #teaching #StemEd
How do we find the effects of extreme #space radiation on human health? Answer lies with yeast in your bread! @NASA scientists are launching #BioSentinel later this year. #Astrobiology By @strayologist
