Truth be told, I don't spend a whole lot of time on Tumblr, but there are a few masterpieces that are worth keeping an eye on. One of my favorites is Mara Grunbaum's WTF Evolution?, which takes a regular look at some of evolution's strangest and most perplexing creations.

Unearthed! Isaac Asimov's private letter to a U.S. military research project back in the 1950s -- how can the military be creative and come up with the best fresh ideas to help defend America from a ballistic missile attack?

Working in a children's museum, I'm constantly trying to promote interactive science experiences for kids, but outside museums I haven't found consistent hands-on opportunities for adults to deepen my understanding of science.
Now that Ebola is here, it has captured the attention it arguably deserved from us long ago. The latest news is that the patient first diagnosed in the U.S. is in critical condition, and receiving experimental therapy.
