The high-molecular-weight polymer exhibited high crystallinity and thermal stability. However, at hot enough conditions, or at lower temperatures in the presence of a zinc chloride catalyst, the polymer could be returned to its starting monomers and thus recycled into new material. Science, this issue p.
Our longing for absolutes is so strong that even within the sciences we believe in certain absolutes, which are beliefs that cannot be proven. The most important absolute in science, which I call the central doctrine of science, is the belief that nature is lawful, and that those laws hold true everywhere and all ...

But scientists say it would burden researchers and lead the best science to be ignored. Under the rule, epidemiological studies linking air pollution to early death, or contaminated drinking water to cancer, for example, could be tossed out because they relied on confidential medical records of people who ...
Genetic modifications to a plant that makes artemisinin, a key compound used in malaria drugs, tripled the amount of the ingredient naturally produced in leaves.

Look, let's just puff-puff right past the 4/20 jokes, OK? There's no reason to toke up all of your time with silliness when you could be nodding your head (slowly) to Sleep's first album since Dopesmoker, considered by many to be the high-water mark of stoner-metal epics. (Its release date is something of a ...
Science advocacy is pretty simple. You just have to ask—in Congressional parlance—for what you want. The idea of such an ask may seem strange, but it is key to getting heard on the Hill. And it isn't wholly unfamiliar. After all, every time we write a grant proposal, we're embarking on an ask. After taking ...
