May Issue Highlights

Welcome to the May 2017 issue of SB&F. Our cover introduces you to a new book by Lee Berger called Almost Human: The Astonishing Tale of Homo naledi and the Discovery That Changed Our Human Story. (p. 167.) This book explores the discovery of the richest primitive hominid site ever and an all-new species, which they named Homo naledi.

This issue also looks at the upcoming World Science Festival, scheduled to take place in New York City at the end of the month. This festival brings together renowned scientists, philosophers, historians, authors, journalists, and other luminaries addressing timely topics like quantum physics, neuroscience, and genomic engineering. (p. 169.)

In light of the most recent measles outbreak in Minnesota, our Read-Around-A-Theme focuses on vaccines, including their safety, effectiveness, and the facts and misconceptions about them. (p. 172.)

You’ll also find our monthly selection of books, media, and website reviews and our listings of upcoming science television programming.
