Hilleman helped develop vaccines against several strains of the flu during his 40-year career in vaccine research. Jonas Salk gained worldwide fame for his polio vaccine; Louis Pasteur is remembered, among other things, for developing a vaccine against rabies, and Edward Jenner’s name is forever connected to vaccination against smallpox. But history barely remembers the

Scientists painstakingly studyied 1,510 fossilised fly pupae from the Palaeogene, and discovered tiny fossilised wasp larvae inside 55 of them. Together, they include four new species that were previously unknown to science. Endoparasitoid wasps, conceptually, are some of the creatures that are

Six years after the strange, elusive Higgs boson particle was discovered, scientists working with the world’s largest particle accelerator have finally observed its mysterious, yet most common, decaying process. Using data from the Large Hadron Collider, physicists caught the boson decaying into two smaller particles – a bottom quark and its antimatter equivalent, an antibottom
