Scientific American Guest Blog: Lenina versus the pneumococcus

Brave New World by Aldous Huxley is a fascinating read.  Lenina is the inoculation nurse at the hatchling laboratory in central London.  Follow this link to the Scientific American Guest Blog to read about her being placed in a pneumococcal research laboratory.  The science of pneumococcus, antibiotics to treat, growing resistance, vaccination issues is referenced.  Artwork by Artologica is placed within the story.  Come read Short Story Science!
