Sunday Links: Stuffed Monster Edition

  • Rolling Stone honored 100 People Who Are Changing America, including many scientists. I was particularly taken by #43 – a female theoretical physicist who hypothesizes that  “gravity may be concentrated in a hidden dimension beyond our normal three — in a warped, parallel universe with totally different chemistry.” (Via Chaos Theory.)
  • Rick MacPherson posts about the challenges of bringing real science into the classroom. It all started with an innocuous statistic about oxygen production and ends with ocean educators throwing DOWN. A must-read for people in science outreach.
  • WaterNotes reminds us that feeding wild animals is always, always bad. People who poison baby dolphins, however accidentally, are going to the special hell.

    Thank you for your link, and what an honor to be featured on a site like this one. Considering the content here, you might enjoy knowing that last year’s fund-raising project was a ‘Sea Monster’ bath set with the 2nd-3rd graders!
