Revenge of the Two-Headed Worm Getting superpowers in space is not an uncommon trope. From the Fantastic Four to Venom, science fiction generally portrays space as the origin of some interesting supernatural changes. Well, sometimes truth really is stranger than fiction, as a worm came back from its trip to space with an extra head. The flatworm, which was cut and sent to the International Space Station to study the effects of space on cell activity, returned to Earth with two heads after regeneration. Even stranger, after amputation, the worm continued to regenerate with more than one head, as if it had been reconfigured to have multiple noggins. While it may sound like something from a science-fiction film, the results of the experiment could give scientists insight into human cell changes in space.…

the sound of science

Forty years ago, Ann Druyan, along with future husband and famed astrophysicist Carl Sagan, set out to create one of humanity’s greatest legacies. Her mission? Developing a phonograph record to represent the entire planet. Nature, language, music – the essence of Earth was etched into the golden records affixed to the Voyager spacecrafts, with graphic instructions in the case of extraterrestrial contact. We got the chance to speak to this interstellar science communicator about Voyager, STEM, and American culture. Innovation & Tech Today: With the 40th anniversary of Voyager, do you feel a particular nostalgia for the project? I know it’s gotten a lot of attention in the press. Has it stirred up any memories for you? Any feelings? Ann Druyan: You know, there’s something about human beings that loves these round…

salinas valley and the future of farming

By the year 2050, it is projected that the world’s population will hit 9.1 billion, 34 percent higher than today. According to a Food and Agriculture Organization report, food production will need to increase by 70 percent to support these numbers. Population growth doesn’t just mean more people; it also means less land. Adding to this food production problem is a U.S. farm labor shortage – a result of an aging workforce combined with a decrease in immigrant workers. This has led to slower (and more expensive) production. Given all these factors, things are not looking good if the world wants to feed 9.1 billion in the next 30 years. Since farm expansion isn’t an option, people are finding new ways to produce higher and more efficient yields through agricultural technology.…

Online privacy is an illusion. It doesn’t exist. All it takes is one poor choice when making a social media post to destroy your reputation and bring about a level of personal fame that you hadn’t planned for. The fact that all social media posts are potentially public means that people can have access to posts that you never intended a larger audience to see. This includes potential employers. There is a growing awareness of the role that social media plays in someone’s professional livelihood, with debates arising about whether or not employers can terminate workers based on their social media misfires. For instance, according to CareerBuilder, “37% of companies use social networks to research potential job candidates.” That said, here are some of the putrid posts, shameful shares, and…
