This is a good time to take another look at recent Bulletin stories that delve into the psychology behind what has been happening lately in North Korea. And discredit some common tropes.

Teen Vogue may not be the first place one would ordinarily think of when it comes to an article about North Korea and nuclear weapons, but a new relationship between the Bulletin and 'TV' led to a terrific explanation on the North Korea situation by Science and Security Board member Sharon Squassoni. Teen Vogue will also be featuring Yangyang Cheng's Voices of Tomorrow piece, Let science be science again, as part of a special article about the March for Science on Saturday morning. Be sure to visit our homepage for more information.

April 22nd is not just Earth Day, it's the global March for Science. Find out everything you need to know about attending a march in your area, or about attending digitally through an online stream.

Watch a recording of the Bulletin's Rachel Bronson, Sonny Garg, and Daniel Holz in a 'Fireside Chat,' hosted by the March for Science Chicago.
 
And be sure watch a short video produced by the March for Science London featuring Science and Security Board member Ray Pierrehumbert. Originally posted on The Guardian website, the video makes the case that: 'The truth needs an advocate.' Read John Cook's piece about how scientists can fight for science without losing trust for more information.
