The Year ’ s Most Spectacular Photos from the James Webb Telescope
[time-brightcove not-tgx=”true”] It’s been both a punishing and triumphant two years for the James Webb Space Telescope. Launched on Christmas Day 2021, the $10 billion observatory spent its first 30 days traveling through the deep freeze of deep space until it reached its destination 1.6 million km (1 million mi.) from Earth. This region marks a spot where the gravity of the Earth and the sun neutralize each other, allowing the Webb telescope to hang stationary in space. Once in position, the telescope spent several more months bringing its hardware online and deploying a tennis-court-sized sunshiel...

Paywalls Are Slowing the Quest For a Cancer Cure
Despite significant strides in research and treatments–from liquid biopsy to vaccines, from precision medicine to CAR T-cell therapy–cancer remains the leading cause of death across the globe, taking some 10 million lives annually. And beyond just the devastating human toll, cancer’s economic burden on patients and their families exceeds $21 billion each year, a number estimated to reach $25 trillion between now and 2050.  Recognizing that there is still much to do if we hope to ever beat this insidious disease, the White House announced recently a $240 million investment in the reinvigorated C...

The Language of Hospice Can Help Us Get Better at Discussing Death
Just because death is inevitable doesn’t make it easy or natural to talk about. In a new study, researchers wondered if hospice workers—experts in end-of-life care—had lessons to teach the rest of us when it came to speaking with patients and families about death. Daniel Menchik, an associate professor of sociology at the University of Arizona who studies the use of language in different fields of medicine, spent eight months sitting in on team meetings at a hospice care facility that were also open to patients’ families. His goal was to study how both groups talked to each other about the impend...

Physicist Bob Coecke: ‘It’s easier to convince kids than adults about quantum mechanics’
The Belgian physicist and industrial musician on replacing maths with pictures, why he ’s now working in industry – and why we all need to understand subatomic physicsBelgian physicist and musician ProfBob Coecke, 55, wants to teach quantum physics to a mass audience.
