I have a short news story in New Scientist this week:

I am extremely pleased to announce that a new popular science magazine has started in the UK and that I've been working with them for several months because they kindly asked me to write their very first cover story.  Science Uncovered is a monthly magazine from Future Publishing.

I have a new story published on my Guardian blog, Across the Universe:
