Kanishk Tharoor goes on the murky trail of the missing Genie of Nimrud – a huge, 3,000-year-old carved figure that once protected a palace; the Winged-Bull of Nineveh, an Assyrian sculpture that guarded the gates of one of the most fabled cities in antiquity; and a looted Sumerian seal stolen in the aftermath of the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
From finding awe in Hubble images to visiting the doctor, science is everywhere in our lives. Whether we wear a white lab coat or haven't seen a test tube since eighth grade, science affects and changes us. We all have a story about science, and at The Story Collider, we want to hear those stories.
