Good science writing makes you feel. It makes you
delight in the discovery of a black hole munching on a star, laugh at the image
of aliens puzzling over golf balls on the Moon, wonder at the mystery of the
Spanish influenza’s deadly rampage, grieve for baby shearwater chicks dying
with plastic-filled stomachs, rage at the loss of the Great Barrier Reef, and
cheer for the clitoris’ long-overdue scientific debut.



This ninth edition of the Best Australian Science Writing showcases the most powerful,
colourful, insightful and brilliant news, feature, essay and poetry writing
from Australian writers and scientists. It roams the length and breadth of
science, revealing how a ceramic artist is helping to save the handfish, what
is so dangerous about the hype around artificial intelligence, and whether too
much exercise is bad for the heart. It makes us think, feel, and hopefully act.
