    To turn poplar trees or other crops into fuels, you need to upcycle certain molecules. Scientists delved into how ruthenium oxide catalyst works and extrapolated their findings to determine the most...

Editor’s Note:

One of the great things about being the editor-in-chief of a newsletter is getting to see your writers explain tough topics better than you ever did. I realize that it probably shouldn’t be that way. As a writer, my explanation of quantum materials or free energy landscapes should have to be the best. I remember a stand-up comedian once saying that it should physically hurt when someone tells a better joke. And maybe that’s true for comedians, but it isn’t for me. I’m so delighted to have worked with this team of writers and to see what they could do. Please take a few minutes and read the stories that a group of smart, talented people wrote for you.
