Happy New Year and welcome to the first I, Science of the new decade. We have worked tirelessly to bring you the latest news from science topics, both domestic and international. Discover what methane may mean for microorganisms on Mars and the consequences of the Copenhagen Climate Conference for subsistence farmers in Africa. Also, have you ever wondered what a ‘dirty thunderstorm’ looks like, well, turn the page and see for yourself.
As it is the end of one year and the beginning of a new, we have brought you our essential New Year’s Resolutions, from reducing your carbon footprint to going along to Café Scientific. Have a read and you can decide if we have chosen resolutions that are achievable – whether you stick to them or not is another matter. Another bonus we have included (and my personal favourite) is our sexy scientist babes from cinema – I think that is all I need to say on the matter!
Lastly, we here at I, Science hope you have an entertaining and educational trawl through our magazine and I wish to thank all our writing, illustrating and production staff for their contributions. If you would like to voice your constructive comments or criticisms about our first issue or any other questions please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
