Disclaimer:I am an Amateur when it comes to Science. I post these to peak people's interest. I try to find credible sources as best I can. I share these because it peaks my Interest and I hope it stirs yours too. I am not in Real Life a Scientist nor do I think what I find is everything. I just try to share enough so if interested you, yourself can find out more.

And this week I got two Science Quotes:
I am often amazed at how much more capability and enthusiasm for science there is among elementary school youngsters than among college students. -Carl Sagan

Anybody can make a post like this, I like them to because I don't always see every article that is out there and it is great to learn new things.
