Summary

In science news around the world, the Italian government scraps plans to conduct a controversial human study of a stem cell treatment, the first commercial-scale coal-fired power plant with carbon capture and storage technology opens in Canada, construction of the Thirty Meter Telescope begins on Hawaii's Mauna Kea, the European Medicines Agency agrees to openly share trial data, and more. Also, Science talks with Peter Mathieson, the vice chancellor of the University of Hong Kong, about the ongoing confrontation between the government and students leading a prodemocracy movement. And researchers date hand stencils and other paintings in an Indonesian cave to at least 40,000 years ago—challenging the view that Europeans were the first to paint figurative rock art.
