Issue 39 – Rings revealed

Jun-Jul 2011

What if, in our quest for cleanliness, we have eradicated the very organisms that ward off conditions like asthma and allergies? And what if you had the chance to remedy this - but it involved voluntarily ingesting parasites like intestinal worms? In this issue of Cosmos Magazine, we look at the controversial world of worm therapy; plus visit the ultimate potential of superconductors; the world's first seafloor laboratory connected to the Internet; go to Florida to view the final launch of the legendary space shuttle; and ask whether the oceans can survive humanity. Also, see our spectacular gallery where art meets science and view the chaotic beauty of Saturn's rings revealed.
