Just a wee bit of thoughty today. Guess I wasn’t quite ready to let go of the holidays 😦
The weird science hidden in Canadian money:
Visit the subterranean cisterns of Victorian England. Beautiful abandoned places. Atlas Obscura.
Perihelion 2016. Phil Plait, Bad Astronomer, for Slate.
Researchers create a genetic map of the British Isles. Absolutely fascinating. Medievalists.
Holy calamari! This giant squid (just a baby at 12 feet) hung around for a photo op in Japan. The Washington Post.
The tiny hydra may be immortal. Live Science.
I hope there’s something in there that will tickle your fancy.
See you on the weekend!
