Q: Well received question

Q: How do Space Marines suppress their sexual urges whilst keeping testosterone/aggression up?

Jamie HutberI believe space marines don't have sexual urges? Which leads me to the question... How do they stay so aggressive without testosterone.

Q: A very biological story about a cynical scientist who gets the Nobel Peace Prize

AlfredI read this story about 10 years ago or so, but it was in a collection of SF stories that could have been much older. It was a rather longish novelette, or shortish novella, certainly not a novel and too long to be technically a “short-story”. There have been several deadly epidemics of new vir...
