Rebecca Mead: Neil deGrasse Tyson, the New Guide to the “Cosmos”

Rebecca Mead: Neil deGrasse Tyson, the New Guide to the “Cosmos” | Science and Nature | Scoop.it
Neil deGrasse Tyson, the director of the Hayden Planetarium, at the American Museum of Natural History, is the host of “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey,” on Fox, which is a sequel to Carl Sagan’s celebrated PBS series. Tyson’s rhetorical style differs dramatically from Sagan’s. Sagan paid deference to high culture; Tyson’s preferred frame of reference is pop culture. This does not mean that he has unsophisticated tastes. But when explaining science he is most likely to point to a movie such as “A Bug’s Life.” Tyson meets people where they are, rather than seeking to raise them to where he is.

Largest evolutionary study of sponges sheds new light on animal evolution

Largest evolutionary study of sponges sheds new light on animal evolution | Science and Nature | Scoop.it
Most genes involved in complex processes are present in sponges, new research shows. Sponges or Porifera -- there are over 8,000 species currently recognised -- are the most basal phylum of metazoans. They represent a rich animal diversity found throughout the world, from tropical climates to the arctic poles, and they are an excellent model to study metazoan evolution.
