The Last Word on Nothing is a group blog authored by some of the world's top science writers. The blog's name originates from a Victor Hugo quote: "Science says the first word on everything and the last word on nothing." In the spirit of this quote, the team behind The Last Word on Nothing seeks to explore scientific topics with "curiosity and humility." In one recent blog post, Craig Childs explores the budding field of archaeoacoustics, which examines sound in archaeological contexts. In another blog post, Emma Marris describes her experience eating an "impossible burger" (a veggie burger made with wheat and yeast that is genetically engineered to taste more like beef) and discusses the work and legacy of agricultural scientist Norman Borlaug, who developed disease-resistant wheat. The Last Word on Nothing is updated almost daily, and visitors can browse previous posts by author or by subject.
