MSU researchers land two covers of American Scientist magazine

MSU landed two cover stories in the American Scientist magazine in just over one year. 

Zachary Blount, a postdoctoral researcher and evolutionary biologist, had his work featured on the cover of this month's issue. The article focused on examining bacteria to help determine if the living world is a result of happenstance or repeatable processes. 

Indrek Wichman, a professor of mechanical engineering, was part of a team that collaborated on a project examining fire in space. The January 2016 cover discussed the nature of flames in low-oxygen conditions, and the work’s implications for fire safety on future space missions.
