Summary

In science news around the world, the world's first commercial plant for capturing carbon dioxide from the air opens, poor practices in administering a measles vaccine cause a tragedy in South Sudan, the U.S. National Institutes of Health plans an investigation into whether grant reviewers are biased against black scientists, a deal is reached on the care of dozens of chimps in Liberia that were once used to test a hepatitis B vaccine, and more. Also, Hollywood movies and TV shows are a jumping-off point for students to discuss scientific integrity. And researchers find what might be the most hostile exoplanet yet discovered, with surface temperatures nearing those of our own sun.
