Major Science News, June 2021 | Wiki-based Science Summary



This update on recent major scientific papers and developments around the globe features news about the interstellar medium, degrowth, a brain implant, spiking CO2 emissions, a shadow library, mtDNA and longevity, engineered proteins that restore eyesight & more

These are Wikipedia-based brief reviews for last month’s additions to humanity’s stock of scientific knowledge. The video reviews May 2021.

All items in the video are featured in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2021_in_science
