Science doesn’t always get a lot of breaks, it’s constantly twisted and misrepresented in the media, and sometimes the best intentions end up being used in ways the scientists themselves would never want them to be or condone.

It's dark in Murmansk. A railway security guard yawns, his breath visible in the frigid air, and waves through one of the workers arriving for the early morning shift. He barely glances at him.Had the guard looked closer, he might have noticed that the worker's face was unfamiliar; that his fluorescent vest wasn't railway issue but bought in a hardware store — that his Valenki boots were brand new. And had he looked in his bag, he might have wondered why instead of ironworking tools there was nothing but a camera with a long lens.
