Astrophysics: BICEP flexes its muscles
ONE useful feature of a scientific theory is that it makes testable predictions. Such predictions, though, do not have to be testable straight away.

PLURIPOTENT stem cells are the source of an animal’s tissues. They have become a hot topic in medicine. Researchers hope to use them to test drugs, to make models of diseases, to grow transplantable organs and, one day perhaps, even to let patients regenerate missing or damaged parts of their own bodies.Great promise, though, often brings great h...
