Just a quick set of links this morning as The Four-Year-Old is headed to the kitchen to begin her morning science experiment with or without me. So far she’s collected some sugar and salt.
Personally I’m hoping she’ll add a couple of bananas, some flour, oatmeal, a little vanilla, and some nuts and make that batch of banana bread I’ve been meaning to construct all week.
But it’s not looking good, so without any further ado this week’s links:
- Was Stonehenge just an early audio illusion?
- The Fordham Institute reveals the 27 worst states in the nation for learning science.
- It had to happen eventually. The jumbo jet that ferries the space shuttles home after their flights is set to retire.
- A tiny little bird no heavier than two tablespoons of salt migrates 9000 miles each year between the Arctic Circle and Sub-Saharan Africa
- Scientists have discovered four very tiny chameleons living on an island off Madagascar. The smallest of these, the Brookesia micra, is small enough to sit comfortably on the tip of a match.
Now, I’m off to rescue my kitchen. The Four-Year-Old’s experiment supply list has gotten dangerously off track. I can’t think of a single banana bread recipe that requires glitter and glue dots.
Happy Friday, y’all.
