New Scientist news (for scientists)



Two stories that struck a cord:

Earth's volcanism linked to meteorite impacts
"Gigantic meteorites may punch straight through the crust and cause
massive lava surges that obliterate the crater, controversial new work
suggests"
http://www.newscientist.com/news/news.jsp?id=ns99993171

Scientists exposed as sloppy reporters
"A cunning statistical study reveals that many scientists do not read
the papers they cite as references in their published work"
