MUSE March 2017

What’s the connection between slime mold, robots, fairy circles, cockroaches, orchestras, and social networks? Connections! This month’s issue of MUSE explores how nature finds strength in numbers. Mysterious clearings called “devil’s gardens’ appear deep within the Amazon rainforest. What causes this eerie phenomenon? The answer was hiding in plain sight all along! 

See how primitive pests inspired scientists to build swarms of life-saving robots. Then, follow the neck-in-neck race between two rival teams, astronomers and astrophysicists, to determine the fate of the universe. Their competition led to a startling conclusion and a Nobel Prize—but for which team?  Find out more in this month’s gaggle of fascinating articles, including:

“Fairy Circles and Devil’s Gardens” by Jeanne Miller

“Communing with the Letter Spirits” by Kathryn Hulick

“Emergency” by Justin Werfel

“Reaching Like Roaches” by Linda Zajac

“The Race to Discover the Fate of the Universe” by Jeanne Miller

Regular features include Parallel U, Muse Mail, Muse News, Q&A, Science@Work, Do the Math, Hands-on, Contest, Your Tech, and Last Slice.
