Over centuries, thanks to advances in science and technology, we have been piecing together the story of our own human evolution. The twists and turns in the story of our origins have made headlines for quite a while now, but when brand new technology is involved, the discoveries become even more remarkable! How is AI discovering extinct human relatives?
Recently scientists worked on a new way to engineer plants to be more productive and spend less energy while cleaning up occasional cellular messes. How can we make plants more efficient?
Over time, we’ve used science to answer some pretty big questions. Today we continue to learn more and more about life with cutting edge technology and new discoveries, but some of those big questions still remain. Perhaps one of the biggest questions humanity has ever asked: Is there any other life out there?
We often talk about plants and trees because they are simply that important! They all matter, the small ones to the big ones. Right now scientists are looking at the biggest one. What's going on with the largest living organism?
