: New: Book Report: The Best American Science and Nature Writing 2017

It's a collection of popular science articles. I checked it out because one of the articles is about wave-based navigation by Marshall Islanders. If I hadn't already read so much about the topic, this article would have been pretty amazing… but as it was, it just told me stuff I already knew, albeit in a well-written way.

There were other articles about other topics. You can read about how climate change is rendering the earth unfit for human life. You can read about how the world (and space) is pretty interesting to humans, so it's too bad we don't have much time left. There's more than you'd expect about Proxima Centauri.
