Theoretical physicist David Deutsch delivers a mind-bending meditation on the “great monotony” — the idea that nothing novel has appeared in the universe for billions of years — and shows how humanity’s capacity to create explanatory knowledge could be the thing that bucks this trend. “Humans are not playthings of cosmic forces,” he says. “We are users of cosmic forces.”

Humans are within years of sending the first crewed mission to Mars. And then what? Maybe another 100 years from now we’ll eventually have the resources to launch deeper crewed missions from there, eventually reaching as far as… somewhere near Neptune.

A big part of being a kid is building things, deconstructing things and, in general, discovering how things work—that’s why we buy those starter science experiment kits and toy microscopes to encourage their curiosity. But it’s easy to run out of ideas to keep them interested in science, especially as they get older. Luckily for parents, Scientific American has for years been developing an archive of hundreds of science experiments for kids ages 6-12 to conduct with their parents.

scientists at the hefei institutes of physical science, part of the chinese academy of sciences (CASHIPS), have developed a nuclear fusion reactor that achieved 100 million degrees celsius in its core plasma during a four-month experiment this year. nicknamed the ‘chinese artificial sun’, the experimental advanced superconducting tokamak (EAST) can reach temperatures seven times hotter than the core of the real sun, which is about 15 million degrees celsius.
