Indonesia’s sweeping restructuring of science sector faces criticism
Indonesia’s government is facing criticism from some top scientists and lawmakers that a sweeping restructuring bringing together the country’s leading science and technology institutes could undermine research efforts. The policy will see half a dozen science, technology and research institutes integrated into a National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN), a move the government hopes will improve access to resources and funding, and boost competitiveness.
Anemia in astronauts could be a challenge for space missions
The next “giant leap” for humans maybe a trip to Mars, but having enough oxygen-carrying red blood cells for the journey might present a challenge, new research suggests. Even space tourists lining up for short trips might have to stay home if they are at risk for anemia, or red blood cell deficiency, researchers said.
