That is Scientific American’s Science Discuss, posted on June 20, 2020. I’m Steve Mirsky. Three segments on this episode. We’ll hear from Adam Levy in London about an surprising lesson we’d find out about air air pollution from the coronavirus pandemic.
We’ll additionally hearken to a phase sponsored by the Kavli Prize, with a brand new laureate in Astrophysics, Andrew Fabian, who was honored for his pioneering analysis into how black holes affect their surrounding galaxies.

This month, the Trump administration gutted the protections for that area. Right here’s a minute of that 2017 podcast, during which Scott Kraus, vice chairman and senior science advisor on the Anderson Cabot Middle for Ocean Life on the New England Aquarium in Boston, explains what the monument is.
