Why are scientists trying to grow organs at the International Space Station? People live on Earth not in zero-gravity. A stem cell expert explains why it is useful to do these experiments in space.
Many university teaching labs are empty as students have been moved off campus during the pandemic. There are other ways to put theory into practice, at home and online.
The jury at the Weinstein trial will have to check their biases about consent.
As the Harvey Weinstein trials start, a psychology scholar explains why jurors may be biased on the question of consent. While the situations examined in these studies are not equivalent to sexual assault, they illustrate a pervasive psychological bias.
Quantum particles are not really just particles… they are also waves.
Heisenberg's famous Uncertainty Principle is put to the test to see if things really are uncertain in the quantum world.
