The Jobs Summit could be the catalyst for quantum change in science and research

For example, we don’t yet have all the tools to get to net zero. Sure, we know the steps, but some of those steps require technology that hasn’t been invented yet. There has been a strong focus on commercialization, which I absolutely support and we absolutely need. However, we will only find the answers if …

These asteroid particles may be our most ‘pristine’ sample of the outer solar system: ScienceAlert

Fossils ejected from an asteroid in near-Earth solar orbit may be the most ‘pristine’ sample of space rocks we’ve had our primate paws on. According to a new, in-depth analysis of material delivered to Earth by asteroid Ryugu, the rock and dust samples are among the most uncontaminated Solar System material we’ve ever had the …
