        There are many unanswered questions about the vast universe. Scientists estimate that there are 20 billion stars like the Sun in the Milky Way galaxy. Tens of billions—perhaps as many as a hundred billion—of those stars may have planets orbiting around them. Are any of them like those in this solar system? Do any harbor intelligent beings or other forms of life?

        Brain Boost: In 1948, Spanish ophthalmologist Jose Ignacio Barraquer Moner was fed up with glasses. He wanted a solution for blurry vision that fixed the eye itself, without relying on external aids. The surgery he eventually devised was called “keratomileusis,” and his technique focused on reshaping the cornea— what we now know as LASIK. So how does laser eye surgery actually work? Dan Reinstein explains.
