Good science writing makes us feel. It makes us delight in the discovery of a black hole munching on a star, laugh at the image of aliens puzzling over golf balls on the Moon, wonder at the mystery of the Spanish influenzas deadly rampage, grieve for baby shearwater chicks dying with plastic-filled stomachs, rage at the loss of the Great Barrier Reef and cheer for the ...more

Very diverse range of topics covered in the featured essays, including climate change, genetic modification, AI, health and medicine, etc. Would recommend to aspiring scientists or science journalists.

This is a fabulous anthology, each piece is beautifully written, and topics range from the need to send artists and people who think differently into space, to viruses affecting turtles. A wonderful range of contemporary science issues, written in a style for the non expert in mind as a reader.
