Insight, wit and story-telling from reporters worldwide. In this edition, Gulf governments get paranoid as tensions pile up on their doorsteps and western reporters ask tricky questions; so many Syrians are seeking refuge in Jordan that aid agencies are struggling to help them find food and shelter; on the election campaign trail with Aung San Suu Kyi in Myanmar - she may win the most votes, but she won't be the country's next president; the debt we owe the Namibian Beetle - just one of the potentially life-saving lessons scientists are learning from close observation of plants and animals. And the honey-making that's going on high above the sales floors of some of the most elegant shops in Paris
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.
