Sci on the Fly

Sci on the Fly is a collaborative blog created with the goal of promoting a public dialog about science and science policy. Any fellow can be an author, and anyone can post comments and participate in the discussion. Our goal is not to be an anthology of individual voices, but a mesh of ideas intersecting, overlapping and complementing each other. Please see the links to the right for more information about Sci on the Fly.

The opinions and views expressed at or through this website are the opinions of the designated authors and do not reflect the opinions or views of AAAS, its employees or partners.
