Summary

In science news around the world, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency rewrites the rules for its science advisory boards, researchers in China lose access to politically sensitive papers published by SpringerNature, the United Kingdom gets a new science adviser, and West African chimpanzees are set to get a new sanctuary in Guinea. Also, a Stanford University researcher sues the National Academy of Sciences for libel, the U.S. Postal Service releases a stamp to raise money for Alzheimer’s research, and the White House releases a climate change report that contradicts views voiced by some administration officials. Plus, mapping mosquitoes with mobile phones, constructing an entire epidermis with gene therapy, and giving diving elephant seals an oxygen boost—using carbon monoxide. We also announce the winner of this year’s Science/AAAS 10th annual “Dance Your Ph.D.” contest—aerial acrobatics that weave together braid theory, linear algebra, and murder.
