Treehotel...Sleep in Nature! The Mirror cubePhoto © Peter Lundstrom, WDO | Treehotel In a heavily wooded country like Sweden, it comes as no surprise when one comes across a hotel deep in the forest. However, the Treehotel is something beyond the ordinary.

Government policy is wrecking science Ernst Haeckel, the great 19th-century developmental biologist and author of immensely popular science books, suggested that science had done its business and that there was little more to be discovered. A century later, the science journalist John Horgan published a book, The End of Science, making a similar point.
