Five years ago, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk made a startling announcement: His new Starship megarocket, originally designed to carry humans to Mars, might also be used to transport passengers and cargo from point-to-point here on Earth! Blasting toward orbit at many times the speed of sound, then landing again on a ballistic course, Starship would be able to travel from New York City to Shanghai, China (a 12,000 mile trip, so literally about as far as you can travel one-way on Earth) in just 40 minutes. SpaceX's prediction (which it hasn't yet proven, by the way) quickly caught the attention of the media -- and the commercial airlines, who might rightly worry what it means for their business model.

Swedish scientist Svante Paabo won the Nobel Prize in medicine Monday for discoveries on human evolution that unlocked secrets of Neanderthal DNA that helped us understand what makes humans unique and provided key insights into our immune system, including our vulnerability to severe COVID-19. Techniques that Paabo spearheaded allowed researchers to compare the genome of modern humans and that of other hominins — the Denisovans as well as Neanderthals. “Just as you do an archeological excavation to find out about the past, we sort of make excavations in the human genome,” he said at a news conference held by Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig.

STORY: Swedish geneticist Svante Paabo was awarded the 2022 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine on Monday.The 67 year-old won for discoveries that underpin our understanding of how modern day humans evolved from extinct ancestors.Paabo is director at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany.Thomas Perlmann, secretary for the Nobel Committee for Physiology or Medicine, delivered the news by phone."He was overwhelmed, he was speechless and very happy and asked if he could tell anyone and asked if he could tell his wife and I said that was ok."Paabo, the son of a Nobel Prize-winning biochemist, has been credited with transforming the study of human origins.He developed ways to allow for the examination of DNA sequences from archaeological and paleontological remains, reaching back to the dawn of human history.His crowning achievement is considered to be the methods he developed to allow for the sequencing of an entire Neanderthal genome.This research, once considered impossible, showed that certain genes of Neanderthal origin are preserved in the genomes of people today. The prize, among the most prestigious in the scientific world, is awarded by the Nobel Assembly of Sweden's Karolinska Institute and is worth just over $900,00.

Nobel prizes most often go to researchers who defy specialization – winners are creative thinkers who synthesize innovations from varied fields and even hobbies
Innovative ideas spring from many sources, research finds. Yuichiro Chino/Moment via Getty ImagesExperts often recommend that people specialize in one field of work or research to maximize their chances of success. Yet our recently published research indicates that successful innovators take a broader path. We looked at the careers of Nobel Prize winners, who are arguably among the most innovative people in the world. We found that they are unusually likely to be what we call “creative polymaths
