Real Science Sunday

What better way to spend a Sunday than watching some great videos that explain or treat science? [Real Clear Science][] has you covered. I am particularly fond of the video of [Schrodinger’s Cat][]. I am less fond of the Neil de Grasse Tyson’s response to the question of genetically modified foods. I think Tyson’s shows that expertise in one realm, astrophysics, does not transfer to other realms, biology. It’s my understanding, at least, that the kind of tinkering with the genome achieved through plant hybridization is different from that achieved through direct tweaking of genes. I’ve checked with biologists, and they say I’m right and Neil is wrong. *Sigh.* Neil, Neil, Neil.
