The IUCN Red List

Established in 1964, the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Red List of Threatened Species has evolved to become the world’s most comprehensive information source on the global extinction risk status of animal, fungus and plant species.

Scott Hartman's Skeletal Drawings

Scott Hartman’s detailed and rigorous skeletal reconstructions set the standard for sauropods: he’s now become the first port of call when looking for precise, anatomically correct work.

After 11 years, Boston Dynamics has said goodbye to its humanoid robot ATLAS HD. The robotics company says it’s time for ATLAS to “kick back and relax” in retirement, letting the new all electric ATLAS take over. This video was shared to remember ATLAS HD’s great moments and those not so great.

 

Header Banner: AZT the development name for zidovudine was the first drug launched to treat HIV. It was used in high doses and as monotherapy, causing horrendous side effects and resistance in the HIV virus. In the subsequent 30 years clinical trials has led to the development of single tablet, once daily regimens to treat HIV with limited side effects. Now a two pill combination called Truvada can be given to individuals to prevent the risk of acquiring HIV (shown in the DarkDrug logo).
