It's fitting that there's now a Science blog in the Birmingham Post, and for me it's interesting to speculate what it may cover in the future. However, one thing that is guaranteed is that it's not just going to present scientific advances, technological achievements, and new knowledge in an abstract manner.
No - science and technology is now an integral part of our everyday lives; most obviously, most people have mobile phones that do so much more than make and receive calls, yet making these work requires technological wizardry and scientific magic that would have had people dunked into the fountain as witches not so long ago.
Birmingham Science Blog, in association with the New Optimists, examines the breakthroughs, discussions and theories taking place at institutions in the West Midlands. It will look at tomorrow's world and cover biology, chemistry, physics, health, medicine, astronomy, psychology and more.
