"On the Origin" Anniversary

July 28, 2010
On Nov. 24, 1859, Charles Darwin published "On the Origin of Species." It became the most significant scientific work in the last two centuries, challenging and changing how the world views nature, the environment and mankind. Now, a new online special report released by the National Science Foundation asks "how life began," "why scientists believe humans are the result of evolution," "is global climate change forcing evolution," "could life have evolved on other planets," and many other pressing, evolution-themed questions.
