In an attempt to keep my brain in science-gear (look, i’m a scientist, not a mechanic, ok?), I’ve decided to start posting a daily science factlet* on my blog. Just a little random piece of scientific knowledge that I hope will enliven or perhaps even enrich someone’s day. Bring it on.
* – Huge thanks to Kitty Brayne, who pointed out that ‘factoid’ means a piece of information that resembles a fact but is very often not true. So, this will now be the Daily Science Factlet.
