Around 3.8 billion years ago, an asteroid more than 150 miles across, roughly equal to the length of New Jersey, slammed into the Moon and created the Imbrium Basin — the right eye of the fabled Man in the Moon. This new size estimate, published in the journal Nature, suggests an Imbrium impactor that was two times larger in diameter and 10 times more massive than previous estimates.

For two months this spring and summer, Goldie Corash Michelson ’24 achieved something unique for a Brown graduate: at more than 113 years old, she became the oldest living American. On July 8, she died at her home in Worcester, just a month shy of her 114th birthday. http://bit.ly/29yC1lc

Brown awarded 20 college-bound Providence high school graduates awards from its Fund for the Education of the Children of Providence.

Recipients must maintain a 3.0 or higher grade point average throughout high school, have a strong attendance record and demonstrate financial need. Preference is given to students who would be the first in their families to attend college. Applicants are asked to write short essays as part of the application. Essay questions this year asked applicants to reflect on how they had positively contributed to their high schools and communities and which person they admire they would want to have lunch with.

In a study using tadpoles, neuroscientists tracked how the brain develops its sense of whether two sensory inputs — for example, vision and touch — happened at the same time.

"Graduating from Brown University in May 2015, I thought I had worked hard. As a member of the varsity men’s crew team, I had rowed more than 50 competitive races, run more than 1,000 loops of Providence’s steepest hill and put in more than 2,000 hours of training at the boathouse. I had competed next to incredibly talented athletes on a daily basis. But it wasn’t until I was cut from the U.S. men’s national team in May 2016 that I truly came to understand the difference between working hard for work’s sake and working hard for the purpose of improving." –Anders Weiss '15 (via TIME)
'I had to be more intentional about the work I was putting in'
