STARTING SEPTEMBER 14TH! There's a lot of science that happens both within and outside the walls of a natural history museum, and we thought it was about time we bring more of those stories right to you. Stay tuned for regular news updates!

Emily: In 2015, Field Museum Scientists published 226 books and papers and had their works cited more than 10,000 times. They studied specimens from every continent on the planet, including those in the ocean and others in outer space, and in the process discovered 148 new archaeological sites and 160 new species to science. We lent out in excess of 42,000 specimens to other museums and research institutions, and had 727 visitors come here to help answer their big research questions, and you probably didn't even here about a fraction of this.

It's not your fault! But, I wanted to do something about it. For the last 36 years the museum has circulated an internal newsletter called The Natural News, where scientists write in about expeditions, new species, and other research findings, and we want to bring all of that to you right here on The Brain Scoop every other week. Don't worry, we're gonna keep the regular content coming. The first episode of The Natural News airs in two weeks. Stay tuned.
