Things everybody should know… @ 11:38 am

As a scientist, its always of intrest how the general public percieve science and scientists and quite how much knowledge the general public has about scientific discoveries.

It was therefore interested when i stumbled on an article in an american newspaper “the Star Tribune” where they asked 10 leading scientists for the question that they thought everyone should be able to answer. Its quite interesting, and theres only one i thought really wasn’t to applicable (its also the one i didn’t know the answer to – concerning the age of the earliest fossil) – but have a read and see what you think…Why is the sky blue? and other things you should know
