More coverage on Death Fluorescence in the news

9 September 2013

The death fluorescence study provoked some interest from the news media,
both nationally and internationally. At home, it was covered by New
Scientist (online), and small items appeared in the Daily Mail, and
Metro (London). There was more interest in the USA, where David Gems was
interviewed for the National Public Radio programme “All Things
Considered” (similar to the Today programme on R4), and the story was
covered by Scientific American (online) and The Scientist. More widely,
the story was covered by news media in France, Canada (in the
publication "Vice"), Sweden, Romania (where there was a colourful TV
news item), Ghana, China and Indonesia.
