THIS MAKES ME SO HAPPY !
Measles has surged back in Europe, while whooping cough is has become a problem here in the U.S.
Childhood immunization rates plummeted in parts of Europe and the U.K. after a 1998 study falsely claimed that the vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella was linked to autism.
That study has since been found to be fraudulent. But fears about vaccine safety have stuck around in Europe and here in the U.S.
NPR maps the resurgence of preventable diseases due to public ignorance and lamentable misinformation about vaccines.
Pair with Bill Gates on vaccines, animated.
Andrew Wakefield has so much fucking blood on his hands, it’s unbelievable.
It’s 17 degrees in NYC right now.. When I took this picture for Steve Madden last summer it was almost 100 degrees hotter… As far as I’m concerned, summer can’t come back fast enough! Shout to @eatkhake for the amazing art direction!
These have been floating around the internet for years - but I just came across them. You can see more of these drawings (there are dozens), and the students written impressions of scientists, over at the FermiLab Education Office's website.
That was not what I was expecting
that escalated quickly

Recent Observations Confirm Presence of Water Vapor on Dwarf Planet Ceres
“Recent observations of the dwarf planet Ceres by the European Herschel Space Observatory have revealed for the first time the presence of water vapor on this object in the Main Asteroid Belt.
This is a tantalizing discovery. Although the presence of water ice on the rocky objects of the asteroid belt has long been theorized, this is the first definitive detection and the first detection of a possible atmosphere on a Main Belt object. Further, the amount of water ice believed to be found on Ceres may be greater than all the water on Earth.”
