The science of our days - a post a day!

I've been reading a lot of stuff during this crazy year of 2020, but haven't had the chance to compile and make sense of all the relevant information. I thought of  using the blog to aid me in the task of updating myself on the many levels of scientific information that I've been gathering throughout 2020 (yes, not all is covid-19 in the world, I promise you). 

In that sense and in the coming weeks until the very end of December 2020, I'll be posting a summary a day of quite short (500 words) and straight to the point chronicles addressing a magnitude of different savory scientific topics. 

I leave you with a small list of what is to be discussed and that will definitely entice you all to visit the blog... every single day (starting this Monday the 21st of September so pin it on your calendar):
