Science 360 News Relaunched


The National Science Foundation (NSF) has relaunched their science news site Science 360 News Service.  It focuses on research and scientific discoveries funded by the NSF.  The site is updated on weekdays, and has an issue format where you can see a ton of different stories on one page.  The site has a good mix of news and multimedia – including a Picture of the Day, video and audio (selected from various podcasts).  You can also sign up for email updates, or subscribe to one or more RSS feeds.

Having a realistic view of the world and how it works is necessary for implementing solutions that will help improve it.  Science helps provide that background.

One thought on “Science 360 News Relaunched”

  1. Science is such a complicated subject, possibly at times, a field with many ego at stake. That’s easy to understand. There have even been bouts of “outsiderness” inside the scientific community (molecular biology vs. ecology, or mathematics vs. physics), and examples of dogma rising above scientific acumen are too numerous (even once is too much as within the “Clovis first” mandate). Skepticism has long served science well, nevertheless it might be time for a new paradigm — a subtle, yet potent shift in mindset and thinking. Could “selfless restraint” fill that duty? It offers all the correct elements minus the excess baggage that all too frequently goes with skepticism. One glance at the “skeptics” forums and online resources, and you can see the type of illogics that at times discover their way into scientific thinking.
