Quick Updates

A friend showed me a very cool Kickstarter that hopes to take everyday people’s experiments (and those of a few scientists) up to space!  Check it out here.

NPR Science Friday had an interesting segment today about a movement hoping to have a “science debate” between the presidential candidates.  A recording of the segment and additional reading are on the Science Friday website.  I hope to post a response to it soon.

And the Olympics just started!  NBC has a series of videos called “Science of Olympics” looking at science and engineering that goes into the sports and equipment the athletes are using.  If you start here, you’ll see the other Science of Olympics videos in the related videos category.
