No, I’m not riffing on 10 squared, or even the the discovery that DNA sequences called genes are combined into packets called chromosomes (100 years ago).
No, today marks this blog’s 100th post.
I’ve offered my own version of how to become a science writer (in 10 not-so-easy guidelines) and the cultural divide between my new world and the old one. I’ve written about my favorite Mars rover, my Monopoly money bet on Spirit, and her transition to stationary science station.
Here are a few other favorites:
- The network of connection: I love when unusual fields collide: here’s a hodgepodge of social networks, systems biology, and the importance of a healthy boss.
- I’ve reviewed documentaries: about the intricate folds of origami and what it’s really like to get a Ph.D. in science.
- And I’ve bridged between science and music, getting behind the scenes of “indestructible” cellos and wacky woodwinds.
I’m looking forward to the next hundred.
