"Despite the hostile environment, humans will travel to Mars someday," says Brooke Grindlinger. And we'll probably have to genetically engineer ourselves to do so.

What are the ethical implications of that, and what other challenges face us in our quest to explore — and colonize — space? To learn more, register today for this thought-provoking virtual event featuring leading scientists!

When I look at my Apollo 11 image of Earth I am astounded by this tiny beauty and how it manifests itself by projecting an air of fragility. Part of it, I guess, is that I know the surface fauna - a herd of antelope, let’s say - is fragile indeed. I also know the Earth’s surface is very complex, so the combination of small size and huge complexity must require fragile parts. Tiny in size, huge in impact, and very fragile. I especially like the Earth photos that are small enough for me to carry, squeezed into my wallet. To me that world is worth carrying around. I’d like to say hello to everyone out there, and I hope the treasures you carry in your wallet will include a photo of your home, this beautiful Earth. Feel free to use this one I made. I call it: Wallet World.

To me Moon Day was July 20, 1969, a date to remember and cherish, but Earth Day should be every day. The Earth gives and we take, 365 days a year. The least we can do is to set one day apart, and say, “Thank You, Earth” for being so forgiving, for healing - or at least trying to heal - the multitude of injuries we inflict upon you daily.

It took fewer than 100 hours for engineers at Mercedes-AMG High Performance Powertrains and University College London Hospital to produce a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), a type of breathing aid that can assist COVID-19 patients, from the teams' initial meeting on March 18. Now, 100 breathing aids will be delivered to UCLH for clinical trials with the goal of a rapid rollout in the coming weeks. https://abcn.ws/39AlHi9

Over 3,000 cases of Covid-19 have been confirmed in Sweden and 92 of those who have contracted the coronavirus have died. "The crisis is not over," said state epidemiologist Anders Tegnell on Friday and he urged Swedes to keep following the Public Health Agency's recommendations.

But what does a "recommendation" from a public agency in Sweden actually mean? How strong is the word in Swedish legalese? Listen to the report to find out:

Italy and Spain have done it. So has France, Germany and the UK. But not Sweden.
Health and government officials say, for the moment, Sweden doesn't need to lock down the country by closing schools, stopping non-essential businesses and ordering people to isolate at home.
The Public Health Agency says the fight against the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus will likely take months or perhaps even longer. There is no approved treatment for it and a possible vaccine is likely 12 to 18 months away at best.
And the agency believes tough, nationwide restrictions on daily life can't be maintained in the long-run. Take a listen and hear how they motivate their current policy:

The number of Swedes who will show up at hospital and test positive for covid-19 in the future is substantially higher if one applies a simulation model used by experts at Imperial College London to the Swedish population, than the forecasts used by Sweden's public health agency, says an expert at Lund University.
But can we trust any coronavirus model simulations when the data from China is inconclusive?
We've spoken to Professor Paul Franks, Anders Tegnell at the Public Health Agency and Ulrika Björksten, the head of Swedish Radio's Science Department. Take a listen:

While some countries have opted for emergency laws, lock-downs and other strict measures, Sweden is so far sticking to its approach, with politicians referring to recommendations by the Public Health Agency.
We spoke to a political scientist at Lund University who studies the relationship between science and politics and how leaders make policy based on uncertain situations.
And she says there are several reasons why Sweden is likely choosing the path it has, ranging from societal trust to the independence of the state agencies.

"Suddenly I saw it — my first grand skink; its speckled body sleek and torpedo-shaped, thick as a tube of toothpaste, frozen in the morning sun. I, too, froze. In the stillness we eyed each other, a gleaming black eye locked on my brown. Then, with an almost imperceptible ripple, it moved on its lichen ledge and, woken from my trance, I remembered my mission. Raising my heavy camera I got to work."

Our postgrad student, Anna Yeoman, has created a stunning collection of stories and graphics about the amazing species that make the Otago drylands their home. Check them out, and learn how to tell a gecko from a skink, at https://www.mokomokosanctuary.com/

There is actually very little is known about what happens to these animals during the winter, but in the summer thousands of belugas gather in shallow areas where rivers and oceans meet, known as estuaries. 📷 Glen Hostetler

On 24 March 1882, German physician Robert Koch announced the discovery of the bacterium that causes tuberculosis (TB) - a date marked by #WorldTBDay today.

In the 1800s, the disease caused as many as a quarter of all deaths in Europe. Koch's discovery opened the way for diagnosis and cure, and during the 1900s, the mortality rate declined drastically due to research and the introduction of antibiotics.

Known as 'the father of bacteriology', Koch was awarded the 1905 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his discovery.
