Title: Water Secrets

The water you drink was formed by a supernova and delivered to earth by icy comets and asteroids. With each sip, you’re drinking stardust that has traveled light years. Is it any wonder that water contains some amazing things? Explore the secrets of water with this issue of MUSE, from ancient microbes to fish that live in the desert! Discover the hidden superpowers of tiny tardigrades and water fleas, search the solar system for H20, and meet a glaciologist who leads transformative adventures! But as awesome as water is, don’t expect a fancy bottle of water to cure cancer or turn you into a super-athlete. Real scientists debunk myths about these so-called ‘elixirs of life.’ Work up a thirst for learning with these fascinating articles:
