Classical Physics Is Non-Deterministic

It's not just quantum mechanics that's weird. Reality—no matter the scientific foundation—is weird, too.

Ghost of Scientific Racism Not Busted

A 1920 science project was "preposterous and disgraceful," but have today's scientists learned the lesson?

Adult Brain Can Build New Neurons

A dogma-challenging find raises a question: does the environment create the mind?
