#ScienceSunday

Let’s kick of a #ScienceSunday hashtag. I’ve been doing this on and off for a couple of months now, and it seems like a very positive way of promoting rationalism.

Here’s the premise:

Find an interesting science story from the previous week and post a link to it, using the #ScienceSunday hashtag. Ideally the story should have a human interest angle, or inspire a sense of wonder. The idea is to highlight the very real miracles that happen (or are discovered) every day in this world thanks to the hard work of scientists everywhere.

Not every story has to be about a potential cure for cancer or the search for extraterrestrial life — the fact that we have access to such incredible technology today is a reminder that science and technology enriches our lives.

Today I’m going to post this cute animation that gives us a unique tour of the Large Hadron Collider, found via Orbiting Frog.


Notes

While writing this post, I discovered a very similar ScienceSunday page on Google+.
