The giant penguins are on the march. There are now several recognised species, each with a different niche connected with the food-rich Antarctic seas.

The high level of profits from medical research and the possibilities of new sciences and technologies stretch our imagination, here in the office, at least. Now a distant and very ancient ancestor has very obviously given us, through simple breeding, a wonderful solution to survival at altitude. Who knows how climbers or even space travellers could benefit as we use our new knowledge?
