Today in class we discussed chapter 7 of Neil Shubin’s book, Your Inner Fish. This chapter explored how life on Earth went from being unicellular to multicellular. Later in the day, as I was driving my son to Karate, I was listening to the Science Magazine’s weekly podcast and was interested to hear an interview with Stuart Newman about a new article on this subject.
