I have four of them, one is even signed! The first one I have is his 27th book, it's ten years old! I wonder if he's done any more books...

Pluto might be a planet again!! Check out this article here! The man who did the New Horizons mission wants to reclassify what a planet is, which means that Pluto would become a planet! Along with a hundred other bodies in space but hey, yay to Pluto!
Apparently, according to the current specifications of a planet, Earth and even Jupiter don't actually qualify

@N1ghtW1ng I may have to steal your signed Dr Karl book seriously though, that's so awesome
Ray, when you're on the Titanic, you load the lifeboats. You don't stop to yell at the iceberg.

A slight cheat, since this is technically engineering, and not science. It's still really cool though.
(Ignore the 51 billion lives bit, it's more than a little disingenuous, to say the least. Detection of malaria is not the same thing as treating malaria, and there aren't anywhere near 51 billion people alive in the first place. The only reason why they approached that number is that it's been estimated that 51 billion people have been afflicted with malaria...in the entirety of human history. The engineering feat IS huge though (and you can buy your own kit for around $30), it just sucks that it got stuck with such a facetious and clickbait-y title.)
