Wired has been covering technology, tech business, tech lifestyle, and tech products with its special brand of techno-utopianism and hacker wit since its inception in early 1993. It's Science Blogs section, however, is a relative newcomer. Here readers will find the latest in the science of natural disasters, the ins and outs of everyday physics, and explanations of everything from how to race a motorcycle across the United States to what it takes to put rockets into space. Recent articles have presented a vision for a better, realities-driven higher education system, coverage of volcanoes in Chile and Indonesia, a philosophic treatise on the new Star Wars, and some erudite thoughts on how to measure the speed of light. For educators looking for ways to enliven class discussions and inspire students to think again about basic science concepts, these Science Blogs can be an inspiring resource.
