By the year 2040, embryo selection could replace sex as the way most of us make babiesMay 9, 2016 [image: Gattaca - embryos ft] *By Jamie Metzl (@JamieMetzl)* *(Gattaca 1997)* Human reproduction is about to undergo a radical shift.

BEC CREW 29 SEP 2016 According to the latest figures, levels of atmospheric carbon have officially surpassed 400 parts per million (ppm), and there’s little hope of returning them to safe levels - the situation is now permanent.

BEC CREW 27 SEP 2016 Out of all the pressures we face in our everyday lives, there’s no denying that the nature of time has the most profound effect. As our days, weeks, months, and years go by, time moves from past to present to future, and never the other way around. But according to the physics that govern our Universe, the same things will occur regardless of what direction time is travelling in. And now physicists suggest that gravity isn’t strong enough to force every object ... mais »
