OpenYourEyes writes "There is a new
science museum, run by the National
Academy of Science, that has opened in DC. So what? Unklike many
museums which simplify their message or use fake data, the exhibits at
the Koshland Science
Museum are all based on real research, real reports, and real
science. Each one contains references to the research reports and
data they are based on. Exhibits on
DNA, for example, use actual (and long!) DNA sequences to help
illustrate how DNA plays a role in disease, agriculture, and
criminology. There are also exhibits on
Global Climate Change and
The Wonders of Science."
If I were a grave-digger or even a hangman, there are some people I could
work for with a great deal of enjoyment.
