“As a population we can accept and understand the flu and – with the exception of the 1918 influenza pandemic – basically deal with it, whereas the Sars and Mers coronaviruses have very high mortality rates and in general coronaviruses are much more unpredictable, hence the reaction,” says Gary Whittaker, professor of microbiology and immunology.

Aija Leiponen, professor of strategy & business economics, says, “If Sprint goes bankrupt, its assets will likely be sold to the other three companies, potentially enhancing the already strong dominance of the two market leaders. The creation of a third equal competitor… might actually provide a more viable alternative, and a counterweight, to Verizon and AT&T nationwide.”

Jonathan Lunine, professor of astronomy, comments that bringing samples of Mars back to Earth “will be an enormous advance in terms of the science of Mars… and [the] possibility that it might have even had life at some point.”
