HWISE-RCN Dr. Asher Rosinger Makes Cover of Scientific American

On June 15th, HWISE-RCN member Dr. Asher Rosinger was featured on the cover of Scientific American for his work on the evolution of human water needs. As Laura Helmuth, the editor-in-chief of Scientific American, states, Dr. Rosinger’s article explains that “some of our most distinctive technologies, from clay pots to aqueducts to desalination plants, were developed to let us survive and thrive when and where water is scarce.” Dr. Rosinger’s article “Human Evolution Led to an Extreme Thirst for Water” shows that humans are more dependent on water than any other mammal and, as a result, have developed some creative ways of collecting it.
