It’s going to take a while, but we find glimmers of hope.
We speak to Guardian journalist Sumanth Subramanian. He tells the story of one lab’s push for a Covid-19 vaccine, and the promising new technology they’re using. It just might revolutionize vaccine development. But don’t get too excited, because the fastest vaccine ever… well, it took about four years.
While we wait, the US political system is going through a pretty radical transformation. Wired science journalist Adam Rogers tells us how states are forming new regional alliances, threatening to create what he calls “a new cold civil war.” Plus, Rogers gives us an update on how academic publishing is changing during the pandemic.
