ACS Matters - Your Source for the Latest News & Events from the American Chemical Society
August 18, 2020
ACS is excited to announce Untold, a new video series produced in partnership with PBS Digital Studios and YouTube Learning. This limited-run series features stories about science and how chemistry, physics, astronomy and geology can provide insight into the world around us.
Over the course of 10 episodes, Untold tells stories through a scientific lens, from the tale of a lonely whale to the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster to how air conditioning works and more. The series is hosted by Alex Dainis, Ph.D., a geneticist and science communicator. Throughout each episode, Dainis explains the history involved and illustrates the science behind the unique topics.

YouTube Learning was created to fund and promote creators and organizations making education-focused content on YouTube, and features content from the History Channel, NASA and other organizations dedicated to educating the public. During the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been and continues to be a valuable source of remote learning for students.

Untold is available to watch now on the ACS Reactions YouTube channel.

"America's disparities in air pollution are dramatic enough to be seen from space. Using data gathered by satellites
and airplanes, researchers discovered rates of nitrous oxide (NO2) pollution vary significantly across neighborhoods in Houston, Texas. On average, NO2 pollution was 37 percent higher in non-white neighborhoods. This finding was published Wednesday in the journal Environmental Science & Technology."

C&EN - This Week's Headlines
Is it a worlds-colliding scenario, or maybe just a clearer picture of the complexity and interconnectedness of science and society? At any rate, it's a great story: in this week's C&EN Newscripts column, Sam Lemonick tells the tale of a UC Berkeley biologist who connected with MC Hammer over slime mold on "Science Twitter" and found a
thoughtful, kindred spirit as well as a fellow Oakland A's fan. Small world! Also in Newscripts this week, coverage of newly patented technology to improve air circulation in drum thrones. (Not a moment too soon!) We salute the breadth and depth of coverage that Newscripts consistently brings to stories we didn't know we needed to know about. Kudos, colleagues!
