I regret that I haven’t been able to file Many Worlds posts for a while, but here is why:
The broken part of my wife’s ankle is the traingle of bone floating near the tibia, to which it should be attached.
She’s had surgery and isn’t supposed to be walking on it for a month. But now, with the help of several screws holding parts together, she is on the mend.
New posts coming next week!
Marc Kaufman is the author of two books about space: “Mars Up Close: Inside the Curiosity Mission” and “First Contact: Scientific Breakthroughs in the Search for Life Beyond Earth.” He is also an experienced journalist, having spent three decades at The Washington Post and The Philadelphia Inquirer. He began writing the column in October 2015, when NASA’s NExSS initiative was in its infancy. While the “Many Worlds” column is supported and informed by NASA’s Astrobiology Program, any opinions expressed are the author’s alone.
