    New CDC school opening guidelines fail to ‘follow the science’

    President Biden vowed to “follow the science” in an effort to get kids back to school. But that’s not what the latest school opening guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention do. The two core pillars of the guidelines — that schools should decide whether to open based on community transmission and that students should strive to be spaced 6 feet apart — aren’t supported by science. While there are many prudent recommendations in the document, these two demands will keep schools closed much longer than necessary, harming kids. advertisement Should learning mode depend on community transmission levels? The new school opening guidelines advise schools to open or…

    China is opening the world’s largest radio telescope up to international scientists

    Following the collapse of the historic Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico, China has opened the biggest radio telescope in the world up to international scientists.  In Pingtang, Guizhou province stands the Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Telescope (FAST), the largest radio telescope in the world, surpassing the Arecibo Observatory, which stood as the largest in the world for 53 years before the construction of FAST was completed in 2016. Following two cable failures earlier this year, Arecibo’s radio telescope collapsed in November, shutting down the observatory for good. Now, FAST is opening its doors to astronomers from around the world.  “Our scientific committee aims to make FAST increasingly open to the international…
