Scientist Develops Revolutionary New System to Name and Classify all of Earth's Life-Forms


Today we’ll talk Dr. Boris Vinatzer from Virginia Tech who has developed what some call a revolutionary biological naming and classification system.  It’s one that could help scientists better communicate with each other about life on Earth. We’ll learn more about this new system and the benefits it could provide. Also... NASA announced this past week that its Kepler space telescope discovered a record 715 new exoplanets orbiting some 305 stars. For over the last year and a half as many as 25 children in California have been stricken with a mysterious polio-like virus that has caused paralysis in five of the youngsters.   These stories and more on this week’s Science World.
