Hi, I’m Scientific American podcast editor Steve Mirsky. And here’s a short piece from the March 2020 difficulty of the magazine, in the segment referred to as Advances: Dispatches From The Frontiers Of Science, Technology And Medication.
The short article is titled Swift Hits, and it is a rundown of some non-coronavirus stories from all over the globe, compiled by assistant information editor Sarah Lewin Frasier.
From the Dominican Republic:
A sunken museum at La Caleta Underwater National Park will maintain in position a ship that sank in 1725, full with genuine (and reproduction) artifacts saved underwater for folks to investigate. Submerged artifacts typically degrade quicker when taken out from the sea.

Researchers examination-drove a meter-very long, wheeled rover that streamed dwell sights of the depths as it rolled alongside the underside of Antarctic ice. The Buoyant Rover for Underneath-Ice Exploration (BRUIE) could sometime investigate frozen-in excess of seas on worlds these as Jupiter’s moon Europa.
That was Swift Hits, by Sarah Lewin Frasier.
