3.2 Io

Io is one of the most marvellous bodies in the Solar System, but the intense radiation bathing its surface (Figure 2) makes it unlikely that anyone will ever be able to visit.

Knowing about particular genes, or their effects, also permits screening – the search in a population for persons with certain genotypes that are associated with a particular disease. Thus the test may be offered to one and all. Until now, screening programmes have focused on one gene at a time, or one disease at a time, in cases where a mutated gene poses serious health problems and something can be done for those who are found to carry the mutation.

Indian Resistance to Relocation
This video is accompanied by text. "Warfare was constant between whites and Indians in the late nineteenth century, as Native Americans fought to protect their land and their heritage from white encroachment. Although they had the benefit of state-of-the-art weapons (repeating rifles obtained from fur traders), they were up against formidable U.S. forces.
