Student essays from the 2020 WISE FoPM Graduate Program Course “Scientific Writing, Publication, and Communication”

Unsolved problems in science fuel the public imagination and call scientists on journeys to explore and illuminate the darkest horizons of human knowledge. In this course, graduate students in the sciences at The University of Tokyo contributed essays that describe some of the most important scientific mysteries of our generation. These questions were refined by an innovative open science peer review process under the tutelage of instructors Drs. Kate Harris, Mark Vagins, and Charles Yokoyama. Please enjoy exploring and reading them.
