This annotation was done by Ann Finkbeiner. The Storygram series, in which professional writers annotate award-winning stories to illuminate what makes a great science story great, was a joint project of The Open Notebook and the Council for the Advancement of Science Writing. It was supported by a grant from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.
