Darwin’s 200th birthday


On this day 200 years ago Charles Darwin was born. Why not listen to this celebratory podcast from Scientific American? Or read this op-ed piece in the New York Times?

Or, if you’re anywhere near Chicago, get down to the annual meeting of theAmerican Association for the Advancement of Science, the biggest scientific conference in the world. They have some free events, and Darwin and evolution will be big topics this year along with climate change.
