“Dr. SkySkull” selects several notable posts each week from a miscellany of ResearchBlogging.org categories. He blogs at Skulls in the Stars.
- Reflections on the Gulf Oil Spill – Conversations With My Grandpa. Over at Observations of a Nerd, Christie hits it out of the park by talking about the Gulf oil spill with an expert on cleanup strategies: her Grandpa!
- Aircraft can cause precipitation by “seeding” clouds. The more we learn about the world, the odder it gets! Greg at Greg Laden’s Blog discusses research that suggests that, under the right circumstances, airplanes can cause rain/snow just by flying through clouds!
- Faith and Science at the World Science Festival – 2010. Love or hate the idea, the World Science Festival hosted a session discussing the relationship between faith and science. Christopher at Tom Paine’s Ghost gives a detailed description of the event.
- The Evolution of Hip Hop (by Natural Selection). Over at The Primate Diaries, Eric Michael Johnson discusses an unusual milestone: the only hip hop show to have been scientifically peer-reviewed!
Check back next Monday for more “miscellaneous” selections!
