Catching up with Download the Universe: Alien worlds, killer meteorites, and meaningless smiles

By Carl Zimmer | March 5, 2012 1:54 pm

Download the Universe, a new science ebook review, is now entering its third week of life. We’ve been publishing a string of new reviews since I last blogged about it. If you haven’t had a chance to check it out, now is a great time to do so. Here are the latest:

Worlds Without End: Sean Carroll on Journey to the Exoplanets

One man and his superorganism: Ed Yong on Before the Swarm

Doomsday Deflected Tom Levenson on Planet Killers

SMILE: The Astonishing Destructive Power of Positive Thinking David Dobbs disembowels SMILE; The Astonishing Power of a Simple Act.

Much more to come!
