Summary

In science news around the world, a new £10 million British prize will focus on antibiotics, Europe selects a giant x-ray telescope as its next large space science mission, scientists in Australia protest pending job cuts, and more. Also, Director-General Ahmet Üzümcü of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons chats with Science about disarmament in Syria and how scientists can help make the world free of chemical weapons. And hippos are poised to be the newest stars of the Web, thanks to the Mpala Research Centre and Wildlife Foundation's new video feed from a riverbank in central Kenya.
