These cartoons are really sweet and very well done. Nice way to explain the though process behind the science, make sure to see at least one of them.

Great series for introduction to scientific concepts and research methods. When we are aware of sources of bias we can devise ways to test for it or eliminate it.

Hanis's insight:

"…before the conveniences that we enjoy today existed, researchers had to pioneer the basic concepts that provided a sound foundation for those applications…" Yes, science was, is and will be the foundation of the advancement of mankind.

How heavy is air? - Dan Quinn

How heavy is air? - Dan Quinn | Why is Science important? | Scoop.it
Too often we think of air as empty space — but compared to a vacuum, air is actually pretty heavy. So, just how heavy is it? And if it’s so heavy, why doesn’t it crush us? Dan Quinn describes the fundamentals of air pressure and explains how it affects our bodies, the weather and the universe at large.
Hanis's insight:

Science can explain a lot, even something as simple and light like air.

What ‘urban physics’ could tell us about how cities work - The Boston Globe

What ‘urban physics’ could tell us about how cities work - The Boston Globe | Why is Science important? | Scoop.it
What does a city look like? To Franz-Josef Ulm, an engineering professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, it looks like a material with a molecular structure. With colleagues, Ulm has begun analyzing cities based on factors such as building arrangement, each building’s center of mass, and how they’re ordered around each other. He has concluded that Boston’s structure looks like an “amorphous liquid.” Seattle is another liquid, and so is Los Angeles. Chicago, which was designed on a grid, looks like glass, he says; New York resembles a highly ordered crystal. If the analogy does hold up, Ulm hopes it will give planners a new tool to understand a city’s structure, its energy use, and possibly even its resilience to climate change.
Hanis's insight:

Science can helps us better understand how our cities work. Learning it's characteristics and trends gives us "the science of cities".
